Our 45th Anniversary


August 6, 1966

I guess it is most surprising to us...that today we are married 45 years.  The number seems to suggest a long, long time ago.  But, in fact, it does not seem that far in the past.

To our beautiful daughters and their husbands, to our four beautiful grandchildren, thanks for the wonderful years of memories.  And to our friends, we look forward to being together with you all for many  years to come.




Off to the Bahamas!

  1. What a lovely picture Susan. You look radiant and Dale looks so happy. Hope you both have a wonderful anniversary celebration. We're not far behind you, with 42 this fall.

    They say time flies when you're having fun, and that is SO true. Congratulations to you both.

  13. Happy Anniversary! What great pictures you posted. I, too, can't believe how time flies. My son is 20 and it seems like only a couple of years ago that he was a toddler. And isn't it weird that no matter how many years go by, we are still "young" in our minds?? My son sometimes tells me that I act like a 'teenager' but, trust me, he does NOT mean that in a complimentary way! LOL!
    Again, many blessings and happy anniversary to you and your hubby.
    Best,
    Gloria

  14. Happy 45th Anniversary! It's also my parents anniversary. If dad had lived they would have been married 56 years today!

    Enjoy your special day and many more happy and healthy years to the both of you and your families!

  18. Congratulations!
    I know exactly how you feel; we celebrated 48 years last month and we look at each other and our family with awe. How did we ever get here?
    Enjoy Susan!...happy to have met you in the Blogshere. Who would have thought we could be doing this now.

  19. Susan, you two are shining examples (it appears to me) as time flies when you're having fun.

    Congratulations for seizing the day and embracing each other and the adventures to come with verve and joy!
