"Let My Love Open the Door"
Berks County, PA
Apparently it's a week of anniversaries for moi. Two year blogging anniversary AND thirty-first wedding anniversary. And to think, I USUALLY have such a hard time making a commitment to things. Thirty-one years. How did that freakin' happen so fast??!!?? Ahhh, 1982 twas a very good year. EXCEPT for fashion and eye shadow colors...
Prince William was born (hello soon-to-be daddy!)
"The Weather Channel" first aired (and now I am OLD because I hawk it daily)
EPCOT opened (yes my Things, that Mexican boat ride in the Mexico pavilion that I use to put you on so I could drink margaritas and not worry about where you are? Wasn't always there.)
The first CD player was put on the market (which thus created the great 8-track wasteland I like to call the back of my husband's blue Mustang)
Gasoline was 91 cents/gallon (explains why I thought NOTHING of putting my Things in their car seats and taking them for endless car rides until they fell asleep)
Twas the year of E.T. (which reminds me, Thing #2 you need to phone home more)
Ronald Reagan was president (happy sigh, loved the Gipper)
My wedding dress cost $300 and was off-the-rack (after spending the past week wedding dress shopping with Thing #2? I think I'm going to go to Epcot, put myself on that boat ride, and grab a margarita at each pass thru)
The Better-Half had no grey hair, but he DID have a mullet (happy to report NO mullet now, but quite a bit of grey. And he earned every single grey hair spending the last thirty-one years with MOI)
What a difference a year makes too. Last year we were in Europe celebrating our mile-stone 30th anniversary. This year? I'm home. Blogging. The Better-Half didn't fall for the "ALL anniversaries should be considered milestones 'oh love of my life'!" rationale. In his defense, it's probably because all wedding dresses aren't $300 and off-the-rack anymore. BUT, we did splurge for the gas and headed to the stadium to watch the Phillies lose. Thirty-one years. But who's counting?
P.S. Just a reminder about my OTHER anniversary and new link-up launching this Sunday called SONG-OGRAPHY.
