Our 40th wedding anniversary

Yesterday, David and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. We first met at a music rehearsal in 1977. He played the clarinet, and I played the violin. He began taking me home after every rehearsal. Three years later, we married. We have aged over the years, but our bond is as strong as ever.

Here we are on our wedding day at Waioli Chapel in 1980:

This is how we looked yesterday:



Our red table setting:


We ate Thai food. It’s too bad we could not invite our children and grandkids to our celebration.

This is an old photo of all of us on Christmas, December 25, 2018:

We hope to make it to our 50th anniversary, but we’ll be in our 80s by then, so who knows?

At any rate, David and I are enjoying our retirement, and we greet each day with a smile of anticipation.
