Today is our 54th wedding anniversary! Yes, on July 7, 1958, Johnny and I married. I had just turned 17, and Johnny had just turned 20. I'll save you the math. I'm 35 years old! Johnny is MUCH older!

People said it would never last! Oh, but it has lasted and lasted!

When I awoke this morning, he had this card and bunch of roses waiting for me.



It was too hard to get a quick shot of the card and roses together, but this is good enough to share.




I sure picked a winner, didn't I?

See you in two days for Blue Monday!

Funny to know that people say that to you guys because me and hubs had the same experience. When we first got married, most of the people I know predicted that we won't never last but here we are almost 10 years after the prediction and still happily married! Happy Pink Saturday.

Your comment at my PINK Post is always appreciated.

Have a great weekend!
