August 11th my 32nd Wedding Anniversary
John and I were married on August 11, 1979. It was a very warm August day. Our wedding was at 11:00 a.m. I wore a very simple wedding dress I bought in Morristown, NJ. John and I paid for our own wedding, so we could only afford to have 80 people. My sister and I rode in a horse and carriage to the church. The sun was shining and everyone on the street was waving and wishing me well! When I got to the church John and his best man and groomsmen were all waiting for my girls and I to arrive. Right after the ceremony the wind picked up and it looked like it was going to rain. We went to a local train station and had some pictures taken. While we were riding in the horse and carriage to the reception hall a few raindrops came down. As soon as we walked in the reception hall the skies opened up and my new mother-in-law said it is Irish Good Luck to have rain on the wedding day. I guess Mom McDermitt was right because here we are 32 years later!
John and I are going to have dinner out and then just relaxing with each other.
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
