There is something to be said for 25 years, isn't there?!!! What would have been devastating in the first few years becomes inconsequential when you've been together for so long. I love how you put it, "After 25 years, rescheduling doesn't ruin your day."

Does anyone else attend weddings today and look at the bride and groom thinking, "They have no idea what they are getting themselves into!" I say that tongue-in-cheek, I'm not really that cynical!


I've been looking at the mortgage rates and thinking the same thing. We refinanced 3 years ago. I'm trying to decide if it's worth the closing costs (again) to refinance (again). About 10 years ago, with our first house, we were able to refinance with out closing costs. That made refinancing a no-brainer.

Are there any good (meaning pretty accurate) refinancing calculators on the web? I'm never sure what kinds of assumptions to make for closing costs or things like that. Or maybe I should just suck it up, apply on-line and see where the chips fall.

But more importantly, Happy Anniversary! Here's to another 25 years.


Well, as my mom likes to say, "It could have been worse!". At least you were together, and here's hoping that Saturday is perfect or close to it.

Well, at least you were together?! Right? Saturday will be better for sure....I hope your eyes feel better soon. Love your attitude.

Almost 29 years ago, we postponed our fancy wedding night dinner because we were too tired from the stress of the day. Happy Anniversary and enjoy Saturday!


god, I don't miss flying!

Oh man I hope your eye feels better soon (and no one else gets it) and that they find hubby's luggage!


The cheap mexican eateries are always the best.


I had to type an almost novel-length captcha on my last comment. These things are getting longer and longer AND harder to read. Are you SURE you need the comment verification?


So true about how even the biggest occasions get less stressful (but not less important) as we get older. Brides should take notice that this obsession with "the perfect day" is a waste of energy.


Hope you're feeling better! Happy celebration. What's a day or two after 25 years anyway?


Hope you are feeling much better and that no one else shared the joy (!) of pink eye. The important thing is that you have something to celebrate -- it's a minor detail that you've moved the day!

Our 25th was on a Wednesday. I begged off of our company's 75th celebration because of it. We decided that we'd enjoy dinner out more if we postponed it until Saturday and it wasn't fair to the dogs to rush right home from work only to go out again. So I went to dog class :-). We did go out on Saturday to Engineering Dad's favourite restaurant and we did enjoy it immensely.

Aunt Snow

Oh, goodness. Congrats are in order anyway!! It's the whole YEAR you have to celebrate, that's the way we see it.

At least you were together (well, at least you were in the same town)! A couple years ago we celebrated about 5 weeks later due to passing head colds back and forth.
Once again, Happy 25th!

What Annie came to know, is that in a group dynamic of the old therapy ways, where you all sit around and 'share' your story, the story wasn't being told. But, put them in a room doing art, without rules, just giving them the supplies and a few words, incredible things would show up. The body and unconsciousness would be doing the art!
