Wedding Anniversary!

IN THE NEWS: Detroit triplet celebrates birth of own set of 3. Read more HERE.



Well, the hubby and I are celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary! Where has the time gone?

You know, it's kind of funny but the hubby's brother and his wife are also celebrating their anniversary. Yes, we got married on the same date but six years later. My mother-in-law always jokes that she'll never forget either of our anniversaries. LOL!


Anyhew... I read an article (HERE) about a couple married 67 years. 67!! Not only that, but apparently the "until death do us part" didn't last very long with them. The wife died in her sleep (at the ripe old age of 93) and then 6 hours later the hubby died (age 95).


It's kind of sweet to be married that long and then not even have to go through the mourning or missing each other part of life. It's also kind of sweet that my hubby is the one who pointed out the article to me. :)


For our anniversary I told the hubby not to get me anything. I just want to be taken out for sushi. And I want a tandem bike.
Whoa. Who said tandem bike?
Well, yes, okay I admit it. I would like a tandem bike. Trust me we would look so cute riding around together. But I guess it seems kind of frivolous with all the purchases I've been making for the house lately. So told him we could wait on it.

Until next anniversary... Then look out!

How long have you been married?

LOL Do you think he would ride on it with you?
I've been married eight years. Hard for me to believe, sometimes.
Happy Anniversary! I hope you get some rockin' sushi!

Debora said...

Happy Anniversary (good luck with the bike...LOL!)

Hubby and I have been married 22 years...OMG!

Chicki said...

Congrats on the 14 years!

I love that story about the old couple. He didn't want to live without her ... sigh! You can't get more romantic than that.

Terri Tiffany said...

32 years this fall! Congrats to you! I hope you get the bike:) My in-laws celebrated their 65th last friday. I pray my husband and I go like the couple in the article. That would be sweet:)

Happy Anniversary, Jennifer and hubby!

You've made me want to a take trip to Center Island to rent a tandem bike with my hubby now. Maybe I'll put that on our summer to-do list. Thanks, Jennifer!

Our 19th anniversary is coming up on August 4th. The time is just flying by. I want us to be that couple in the article. That would be one precious blessing for any married couple, I think!

Happy Anniversary!! I hope you get that tandem bike! My husband would NEVER ride one with me. I love him anyhow. So, next week we're celebrating our 15th anniversary! Ah-cha-cha! Have a great time!

Cindy said...

Yay! Happy Anniversary! My hubby and I have been married for eight years, almost nine.

Happy Anniversary!!!
Maybe he'll come home with that tandem bike. ;)

Tess said...

Happy, happy Anniversary!

It's been 18 years for us...all pretty good, too :D

And, my hubby constantly talks about getting a tandem bike. We have a local bike 'race' that goes around a lake for only tandems. He thinks that would be way fun.

Happy Anniversary, Jennifer!!!

We celebrate 18 years in August. And when we do, hubby's brother and his wife will celebrate as well. We married on the same date, six years apart, just like you and yours.

Ana V. Rios said...

Happy Anniversary and many more!

Jennifer Shirk said...

Thanks, everyone!

Patricia: That's too funny we're in the same situation! :)

T. Anne said...

LOL Happy anniversary! Enjoy the sushi and fingers crossed for that tandem bike ;)

Jody Hedlund said...

18 years seems to be the number of the day! So I guess I'll put up my hand for 18 too. Hard to believe it's been that long! Congrats and have fun celebrating!

Kara said...

Happy Anniversary! We've been married for 12 years. I love the tandem bike idea, that would be fun. I'm so glad I found your blog through Terri Tiffanys.

Kate Karyus Quinn said...

Happy Anniversary! My husband and I will be celebrating 4 years at the end of August.

Robin of My Two Blessings said...

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary. Enjoy your sushi. Does he know you want the tandem bike?

We will be celebrating our 12th anniversary in August.

Stephanie said...

We're coming up on our 8th in August!

Happy Anniversary to you! Hope you get the remodel AND the bike!!! ;oD

Marianne Arkins said...

Congratulations!!!

My DH and I will be at #13 this August. It's flown by. Where do the years go??

Sierra Donovan said...

Jennifer,

Do you know that sweet old song, "A Bicycle Built for Two"? "Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do ... I'm half crazy, all for the love of you ... It won't be a stylish marriage ... I can't afford a carriage ... But you'll look sweet upon the seat of A Bicycle Built For Two."

I've been married 15 years -- 16 next month!

Joyce Wolfley said...

14 years - congratulations! I just celebrated my 6th year last week...14 seems so far away. Tandem bikes also sound great...especially for someone like me who really doesn't know how to ride a bike.

Have a great anniversary.

Chelle Sandell said...

Happy Anniversary!! Our 8th will be on the 29th. Hope he got the karmic vibe on the bike. :)

Cyn said...

Happy Anniversary!!

What kind of sushi?

We've been married 16 years. My husband pointed that out to me, last night. Amazing.

When you get the bike, please post a photo and tell us all about it. :)

Happy belated anniversary! I think we're going on 7. Or maybe 8. I'm not good with numbers.
