20 years ago I was a young bride. I married my handsome "older man" and we made plans for a future together.
Now 20 years later, we have two daughters, aged 18 and nearly 15. We have survived the years of babies and toddlers and small children, and are right in the middle of the teenage years. We draw strength from each other as we take on the task of raising young women.
We have lived in 4 homes, and we are planning this year to finally move to our "new" small home, and embark on a simpler lifestyle.
And after 20 years we still kiss each good night every night, and look forward to spending time together.
Our song back then was: Happy To Be Stuck With You, by Huey Lewis and The News, and today it still is!
