Love is in the air!


I am feeling the love today. Why today more than any other you ask? Well on March 1st, 2003 I was nearly blown off the beach at Point Lonsdale beach saying "I do!" The weather was atrocious. You've never seen guests scatter after a ceremony so quick! We do have a rainbow in our wedding pictures from once the storm settled. This almost makes up for the wind, hail and rain!

So as my husband and I celebrate 10 years of marriage (17 years of being together), it got me thinking about other relationships that last the distance.

  • My wonderful in laws have been married a whopping 42 years!
  • Ron Howard married his childhood sweetheart Cheryl 35 years ago.
  • Samual L Jackson has reached 32 years with his wife La Tanya.
  • Ringo Starr and Barbara Bach have been married 31 years. Their longest time apart is a mere 5 days.
  • Bill Cosby met his wife Camille on a blind date, they have been married 48 years.
So with happily ever after in mind here are some sweet ideas from children. Read their gorgeous thoughts on love and marriage.

"Marriage is when you get to keep your girl and don't have to give her back
to her parents!"
      -Eric, 6

"You flip a nickel, and heads means you stay with him and tails means you
try the next one."
     -Kally, 9
"On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets
them interested enough to go for a second date."
     -Martin, 10

"If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to
do it.  It takes too long."
     -Glenn, age 7
"It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I'm just a kid. I don't
need that kind of trouble."
-Will, 7
 (Love this one!)

"You don't marry the one you can live with.
You marry the one you can't live without."
How long have you been in your relationship?
Got a tip for a lasting union?
