ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " C "



47 years ago Today we made a COMMITTMENT
to love, honor and CHERISH each other.
We made this vow by CANDLELIGHT
in front of a CROWD of our CLOSEST friends.



Here are some pictures to CELEBRATE our anniversary.
I CAN'T believe its been 47 years.
Why...that's practically a lifetime!



We were married during the semester break of
San Francisco State COLLEGE in CALIFORNIA.
I have to CHUCKLE when I see how thin and so very young we look.
Maybe we don't look the same today
but I married a wonderful, CARING guy.
I COULDN'T ask for better.



The CEREMONY was simple and meaningful.
Our reception was held in our CHURCH Fellowship Hall
and we had plenty of CANAPES, CANDIES, COFFEE and CAKE.
Happy Anniversary to my dear husband Dave.
I love you.

What a touching post! There aren't so many who can celebrate 47 years of marriage these days. Hats off to commitment and to each of you giving 100%. Marriage is definitely not 50-50! About that practically a lifetime. . . Your statement started me counting up. Our 44th is coming up, and we will have been married more than twice the years of my lifetime when we made our commitment in our church, and yes, had the reception in our church's fellowship hall. Thanks for the walk down your memory lane and prompting my own memories. All the best to you and hubby on your anniversary and for many joyful years to come.

Hilary said...

Wanda said...

Congratulations Sue and Dave... Love your wedding pictures, as they look like ours.

The most interesting thing is we met through blogging, and then in person at Tahoe, and found out we were were married by the same Pastor. Rev. Roberts. We just three years ahead of you...Looking for 50 this June.

You were a darling bride..didn't we have tiny waists back then?

Sue, Forty seven years is nothing to sneeze at! Congratulations - the photos and your "c" accompaniments are stellar. Jim and I were married in '75, so this year marks 36; many more than I would have ever dreamed!

Isn't is amazing when we look back and see the fashions and how things have changed. This year we will have been married for 23 years and when I look back I smile when I see how we have both changed - but when we are growing older together we dont see the changes do we? I think Jon looks better now and I know he thinks the same about me! lol! Happy Anniversary to you and Dave. Great to be able to share here on ABC Wednesday.

Congratulations !! And wish you both many many more years of happy togetherness.

Reader Wil said...

Congratulations! This is worth a great celebration!
Thanks for your comment . I forgot to tell this: My daughter in Australia wrote this book together with a friend of hers. They went several times a week to Roy McIver, who is an uncle of my daughter's first husband, and recorded his stories on an audio cassette. Back at home she put these stories on the computer and printed them. It took her and her friend two years to finish the book in Roy McIver's own words. The cockatoos are the tribal animals of two tribes in Cape York. They are also symbolic for the reconcilliation of the white Australian people and the Aborigines.

Nice post, in this day and age marriage is different. I share with you that we too had a wedding with cake, punch, nuts, candles, family, friends. Todays weddings are far from the simple things. February 14th will be my 43 anniversary. Do you still have your wedding dress? I do and I don't know why...
