Going away to celebrate the 25th Anniversary

It isn't the destination, it is the journey, and what a journey it has been! It is probably a good thing those two in the photo didn't know what they were up against in the 25 years ahead of them. 2 wonderful children; 2 wartime activations; 9 moves, including two overseas (I might have forgotten one or two); 3 stock market crashes; 2 experiences in purchasing a home; loss of loved ones; welcoming new loved ones; but overall, pretty darned lucky in life and in love. We are heading back to Kansas City to see the Plaza lights - that was about the most we could afford when we first married and had one night together before I headed back to college and he back to Ft. Sill on Monday after our wedding on a Dec. Saturday. We are going to splurge this time, and actually stay in town two whole nights...
