As I’m sitting here writing this post, I’m completely in awe of how time really DOES fly. Everything changes, yet everything is the same in so many ways.
30 years ago today, August 28, 1981 I didn’t have a cell phone. AMAZING. How much a part of our lives are these contraptions now?
30 years ago today, I didn’t own a color TV.
30 years ago today, I didn’t have a mortgage.

30 years ago today, I didn’t have a personal computer.
30 years ago today, I did have a stereo with 8 track cassette. ((Boy, was that dumb!))
30 years ago today, I didn’t have a vcr. ((Not even a stupid beta max one either, glad I didn’t!))
30 years ago today I didn’t have a GPS or even imagine that would be possible.
30 years ago today I didn’t have pets.
30 years ago today I didn’t have children.
But 30 years ago today Dave and I were married…..and I had everything.
This post is for you, Honey. I wish you could be on this cruise with me. I’m sorry that I’m away on our special milestone anniversary, but I am so glad we got to share Alaska together!
This was us in front of that crazy carved moose inside of Gwennie’s diner in Anchorage where we had that first awesome breakfast. My shirt really is NOT neon green, it’s light blue denim. Gotta love flourescent lighting ---
30 years ago today I didn't have these crow's feet either! And you had hair! :c)
This is where we first stopped to look at the mountain goats on the other side of the road with your binoculars. We were so full of awe and wonder at the beauty of the nature around us…just as we were in the beginning of our life together.
On the shores of the lake at Moose Pass. Remember trying to nap in the car, and how I was so hungry I left you there while I went for that reindeer sausage dog? It was cool to watch the float planes take off and land here. Next time, let’s go up in one, okay?
This is you with Jetta, Nikki’s dog…on our hike up Moose Pass. I’ll always remember the stories you’ve told me of the dogs you’ve had in your life. How one dog ((Was it Sam??)) saved you from drowning in the canal when you were a small boy. I love your love of animals, and what a place they have been in our lives. I love to watch you with Sadie, she is so attached to you, with good reason. You spoil her rotten!
We had such a great time in Delta Junction! Was this picture after Buffalo Burger #1, or #2?
Our hike with the Rogers family was terrific! I’m so glad we got to get to know them better and to spend what little non-rainy weather there was in the beautiful outdoors.
If you EVER
con encourage me into staying in a rustic cabin like this…just KNOW that my handcrank sewing machine is coming along for the ride. I’ll sew…you fish, hunt, whatever..but remember, if you catch it, you clean it!
So whaddya say? Are you up for another 30 years?
