On this day twenty-four years ago I married my best friend.
Gwynly and I looked at each other recently and said words often spoken by couples who’ve been married as many years as we have, “I can’t believe it’s been that long.”
To me that statement is a testimony to the great relationship Gwynly and I have.
Now that doesn’t mean our two dozen years of togetherness have been all sweetness and light because they haven’t. We’ve dealt with a miscarriage, job uncertainty, and the loss of his dearly loved parents, as well as some minor annoyances along they way.
But we’ve shared many wonderful experiences: living in Germany four years, welcoming our daughter to our family, buying our first house, watching our daughter grow into a fabulous young woman we respect and admire, to name but a few.
Gwynly truly is my best friend and, as I like to say, my better two-thirds.
Happy anniversary, Gwynly. I love you!

I’m curious how many of you are December brides like me.
Did any of you get an engagement ring as a Christmas present at some point?
