Twenty-six Years

Doug and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary on Thursday. We opted to celebrate with a quiet day spent with friends at Ouabache State Park.

Our friend, Diane, took the above photo. Left to right are Pat, who often accompanies us on our trips to this state park; Diane's husband, Terry; Diane's empty chair; me; and Doug.

And this is Diane.

Here's one that Diane took of Doug and me, after we had moved our chairs to keep up with the shade.

After spending the afternoon relaxing in the park, we went out for supper at a nearby Chinese buffet. It was the first time I'd ever handed my new camera to a stranger and asked them to take a picture, but the waitress who accepted the challenge did a fine job.

Again, from left to right, Terry, Diane, Pat, me, and Doug.

I've told the story of Doug's and my meeting before, so I won't bore you with it again. For those who are interested in reading that story, click here to go to that post.

  1. Looks like a happy group. I went and read your other post about how you and Doug met. It's a wonderful story. So happy you found each other. I should share someday how my husband and I came to be married. It's kind of a long story, and pretty funny.

  2. I do remember seeing your wedding photos but I don't remember reading about how you two met. I have now. I love the concept of a spiritual two-by-four. ;) Lovely story and beautiful pics, here. Happy Anniversary. May there be many more.

  3. How nice, Linda! Happy anniversary to you both!

  4. Happy anniversary, Linda, to both of you. You obviously spent a nice day with your friends, I find it an excellent way of celebrating the anniversary. I followed the links and read your stories about how you met and got married and I like how you accepted the change in your life, living happily ever after. :)

  5. Happy Anniversary.. Sounds like you had a wonderful day... There's nothing better than to relax with friends... Dinner looked great also... Congrats!!!

  6. I can't think of a better way to celebrate 26 years together than to do so with good friends and Chinese food. Congratulations.

  9. Happy anniversary, to you both!
    Lovely photos!
