33 YEARS!!!

33 years ago you called me
and asked me out on a date.
(Well actually our first date was on the 10th.)
You had a little gray hair then.

(You have a bit more gray hair now.)

Best phone call I ever received!

I'm not sure where the years went.
But I'm thankful they went with you!

My life is awesome because you are in it!

I love you!

Victoria said...

YOU are wonderful! Thanks for being so nice to my son. He actually knew that you were only a couple blocks away... his fiancee was visiting for the weekend, and I mentioned you and she wanted to know your name, and said that her aunt knew you or something? I am old and senile so I don't remember details. :) Happy 33 years!!! That is sweet.

Kimmie said...

Tauna, You and Howard are one of the cutest couples ever!!

I love your photo collage you posted and the one of Howard holding your little grand daughters hand on walking along the wall is absolutely adorable!!

SO sad that you are going to be without your hubby until the 26th! I love your passion that you have for your hubby and you and I are SO much alike in this area. I think one of my favorite sayings on your blog is "My favorite place...is in your hug" and I love that you love to be with your hubby more than anyone else. Those are definitely the same thoughts I have about Tracy.

I still am in AWE at the amazing, wonderful treat you delivered yesterday!! Someday (hopefully this year) we can get together and you can give me some tips on chocolate making. Truly amazing and I think you should open your own chocolate shoppe! The "Haystacks Hearts" were my favorite. I would love to know what gives them the "malt" flavor.

Anywho, I'm still laughing that the only day EVER that I have taken a shower in the late afternoon I actually have one of my favorite friends stop by!!

Thanks for being one of the sweetest people I know!! Enjoy your last few hours of HUBBY and YOU time and "Happy Anniversary"!!

I love that line about how "they went with you". I'm going to remember that in twenty years when I'm writing this post.

Julie Harward said...

Something wonderful to celebrate...you tow are a beautiful couple! ;D

Cherie said...

I can only add to the "OOhs and AAhs". I too think you and your hubby make a great couple! Love your picture collage!
Hope your Valentines day was wonderful!

ain't for city gals said...

I'm sure he feels the same way about you! Ain't love grand indeed!

M-Cat said...

Gosh - happy happy love day!
In these days and times your 33 years is something to be proud of!
Here's to 33 more!

Queenie Jeannie said...

Heather said...

Camille said...

You're a sweetheart. I'm grateful for couples like you who serve as good examples of what a marriage could be like! Congratulations on 33 years!! wowee!

Hideaway Girl said...

Happy first date anniversary! We had our first date 19 years ago (high school sweethearts). Time flies by!

Farmer Gal said...

Awwwww! Congratulations! It's so obvious how much you love each other. Here's to many more years together!

wendy said...

I love that. ISN'T LOVE GRAND.
and I love your hubby's gray hair.
Seriously, if I could go gray like that I'd never color my hair
NOT SAYING I DO (tee,hee)

wendy said...

If hubby and I make it 33 years...I'll be 91.
I wonder if he'll still love me when I take my teeth out, and put on my depends at night.

Garden of Egan said...

Wendy, he'll love you when you take your teeth out, but you might have to share them with him.

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

You are a terrific duo! In a world full of so many people who are sad and miserable together, you are a ray of sunshine. Do you think extra snuggling to survive in the 'burg is a contributing factor? Hope your day was sweet!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

How fun is that!! I love it!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...
