This is my Tuesday - Love

I really can't believe we've been married 30 years. Not because I never thought it would last, but because when I was 20 and he was 18, 30 years seemed like an eternity. At that age you feel like you are invincible  anyway. Time is what happens to your parents but never to you. As soon as we were married the military swept us away. It was the first time either one of us had ever been away from home for an extended period, and he was looking at a 6 year tour. Even THAT seemed like an eternity to two kids.

But it helped us grow up fast, and now our epic 50/30/10 year is coming to a close. This self portrait was taken in the back of the limo he surprised me with coming back from my 50th birthday brunch. We're a bit rounder in the face (as well as other places) and one of us has less hair, but we felt like a couple of kids again that day. I'm sure the Champagne Brunch had nothing to do with that!
