    Cool October 23 - Our Special Day

    In a few hours here on the west coast, it will be our 35th wedding anniversary.
    35 years ago, on a rainy Saturday in St. Louis, I married the love of my life.
    It's been quite a ride - he's had a military career, we've lived in six states, raised five kids,
    I've had a teaching career, and we've survived all of the ups and downs of a long marriage
    and a large family.
    We're on the rewards part of it all now - we're enjoying grandkids and having more time for
    each other now. We're still a crazy pair of love-struck kids, after all these years.

    Tomorrow, Jeff, Conner and I are going to explore the harbor at Santa Cruz and try a
    dog-friendly restaurant called Aldo's. The owner used to have a German Shepherd named
    Buffalo, who was the canine greeter until he died. We're going to take my shepherd there.

    I wish you all the kind of love that we have, and a great day tomorrow.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Awww - thanks, guys!
    We've just gotten home from our trip to Santa Cruz. Aldo's was a nice little restaurant with an incredible view of the harbor. We sat down just in time - we didn't realize that they are open for breakfast and lunch only. They were just closing at 4:30, but we managed to get our wonderful seafood dinner.
    Then we wandered to the boardwalk and out onto the pier to watch the sunset, with me in my wheelchair and Conner trotting beside me. The sunsets over the Monterey Bay remind me a lot of the beautiful sunsets over the caldera of Santorini - such a beautiful thing to see.
    We're home now, and both Jeff and Conner are exhausted. Jeff is snoring in his recliner and Conner is snoozing at his feet.
    We're just boring old married people, right?
    Hugs,
    Marla

    You life sounds way more exciting than mine, and sometimes being boring and comfortable is what keeps a marriage going. Congratulations!
