1,144 weekends

22 years, 8,030 days and 1,144 weekends.

Ups, downs & all-arounds.

22 years.

Meeting a man who could lay down the first brick told me all I needed to know and like the song, pretty soon I was singing “It had to be You.”

22 years of Date Nights, 22 years of Virgo and the Circus and 22 years of songs I love to sing with him.

22 years ago I stepped away from the fear and into the arms of my big-shouldered Michigan man.

22 years .. today!

  1. Happy Anniversary, MJ!!! How I love hearing about your life with your man….you two were obviously meant for each other. (He reminds me a bit of Motor Man: am I right that yours rescued you, just as MM did me?!)
    I bet you’re going out to celebrate and that you’ll be wearing a flirty skirt!
    Love the picture….!

    • Thank you, Dianna πŸ™‚ And you are right .. he rescued me .. but I like to think I rescued him right back!

      MJ

  8. Happy Anniversary, MJ and Hubbs. From all you’ve written here, it comes as no surprise whatsoever that you’ve made your marriage such a success. Wishing you many more happy years together.

    • Thank you, Terri. Like most couples, we’ve had our ups & downs and times of uncertainty or not great communications – but we always come back around to each other. For us, one of the keys has been giving each other our space. The other has been agreeing on how much and then coming back together again!!
      Cheers!
      MJ
