29 years ago!!..August 22nd, 1981

29 years ago,tomorrow…..I married my best friend..2010_08_17IMG_2391this is my brother and sister…. michael and sabineIMG_2385


maid of honour..Robbie Piper….and best man….Ken KlockIMG_2386


so filled with hopes and dreams..what the heck were we thinking young and naive!…barely 22 years old….

IMG_2387love the glasses???…can you tell it was the 80”s

Sometimes I wonder if we have lost  something with the passing years..but the truth is that now we are better people inside and out we know we are closer to making our dream come true because we know the one that really matters.

We have made a few mistakes..we have learned from them..made some more and learned again…I guess you could say we are ‘slow learners’ ..eventually things will work out..

Who ever said being married is easy…? it is hardest job ever!!…We have been through some major events in the past 29 years..lots of give and take..sometimes more take than give on both our parts.

So the next time we are missing those ‘fresh-faced’ younger versions of ourselves..remember we have earned every ‘wrinkle’ and every "’grey hair’..or lack  there of..

Here we are 29 years later…still best friends….still filled with hopes and dreams..older and wiser…HAPPY ANNIVERSARY….here is to 29 more…..

dreams never die..just the dreamer..Keep an eye on the Prize…


(please excuse the quality of the wedding day pictures..they are pictures of pictures)..thanks for the idea Nellie :)


  1. Your wedding gown was beautiful, Sue. I also wore those goggle-glasses back in the 80's. It was the style back then. LOL

  8. Happy Anniversary! Great pictures! Here is to many more!!!

  9. Congrats on all those years of marriage. I always find it so amazing when people are able to stay together for such huge lengths of time & truly understand the hard work that involves. This is coming from a guy who has been married 4 times. Yikes!!

  10. If you think those 80's pics were a laugh, you should see our 60's...what fun to see your wedding pics...We are 41 this year..maybe I'll get the nerve to post our wedding pics on our 50th!!!! No, being married is seriously very hard work....but the rewards are tremendously worth it!!! Happy Anniversary...and many more!!

  11. Congratulations on the 29 wonderful years, you are caching up to Donna & I, although I only say 30 plus now for several years. But you are right. in good times and bad, hard times or easy, you have stood the test of lifes hardest job and made it work. We hope God Blesses you guys with 29 more years of togetherness. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
