Real Love Stories Haven’t Ended Yet

I read that quote on Twitter this weekend and thought it appropriate since today’s my 25th anniversary.

I’ve been married longer than not, been a Fechter longer than a Barclay. We were poor and stupid and stubborn when people said it wouldn’t last, especially the generation before us, all divorced. I never thought of marriage as work, like you hear so much. For us it’s been a partnership, getting through problems together (unless they’re at 3 AM and in my head, then I’m on my own.)


He’s the reason I believe in happy ending s 🙂

    Thanks for all the good wishes. Fred texted me an “ugh” at lunch, and I told him to cancel reservations. 😦 Good thing we’re not at the Grand Canyon as planned!
