Well we made it, we have been married 25 years today!!!!

Its actually hard to believe we have been married 25 years. I am not sure where those years have gone. 25 years seem such a long time, but looking back the years have flown by.

So much has happened and a lot we could never have predicted. We were a young couple in love and the one thing we knew for certain we wanted children and when we married, we married for life. We have been blessed with two of the greatest kids a parent could ever have, and are so lucky with that.

Never in a month of Sundays would we have dreamed that 25 years later we would be living a reasonably comfortable life in Canada. We started out in a small two up, two down house in a "town" of 2,000 people, where everyone knew everyone else in England. Now we are living in a nice house in a city of close to 400,000 people on the other side of the world, in Canada.

To celebrate our anniversary we are going away for a couple of days to Niagara-On-The-Lake to stay in a bed and breakfast. Our main vacation this year is in September, when dh celebrates a "big" birthday.

I feel lucky to have such a great dh and I hope we will be as happy together for the next 25 years are we have been for the past 25 years.
