Celebrating. . .

Hi everyone, today I am celebrating the ‘big 40’!  No, not birthday,  I could only wish I was that young.

It  is mine and hubbies 40th anniversary.  Can NOT believe  that it has been that long.

I wanted to share one of our old wedding photos. I looked yesterday and can not find my wedding scrapbook? Trying to remember if I have had it at this home.

Instead I think you will get a good chuckle out of this ‘1972’ college dance photo.  This was our last dance before we were married.

Ha, ha, remember the lions mane that Farrah Fawcett made famous?  And look at that stash!  Wish I still had that dress though.  What I couldn’t do with that lace.

Don’t think we’ll be doing much dancing tonight. 

40 years of wedded bliss and still happy as a Lark!

Hugs,

Jann
