Our Anniversary

Today my sweetie and I celebrated 26 years of marriage together. We are good for each other. I hope we have at least another 26 years to share. We went out to dinner and that was a treat for me. My sweetie does not like to go out, at all. He humors me by taking me out twice per year, on our anniversary and on my birthday. I can usually talk him into just a few more per year.

We've also made the commitment to buy that 40 acres in Missouri. Now the fun starts...making loan payments; but we also get to lay awake at night and dream about our future farm. Are we going to have milk cows or just beef cows? Are we going to have pigs? What about goats? And how big of a garden? It's fun, I can spend hours daydreaming about my future farm. I've already got my breed of horse picked out and we've already planned for a pony for the grandkids! Of course this is still all 10 years away or more!

My book is at the publishers. We had a meeting yesterday and discussed the photos/drawings and where they were getting placed. The photos were taken in the late 1970's with a 110 Instamatic camera so they are not that great. My publisher is trying to make them look better.

Wow, that's so cool. Bike man and I also celebrated our 26th anniversary back in November. My hubby doesn't like to go out to eat either. My mother-in-law use to tell me I was too good of a cook!!!

I'm so excited that you and T are buying the land in MO. Go ahead and dream, it will come sooner than later.
