Fifty Years and Holding. . .

. . .and they said it wouldn't last!

I, a City Girl.
He, a Country Boy.

He was down to earth.
I had my head in the clouds.

We were far too young.
Often referred to as  the Baby Bride and Groom.

We didn't have employment.
What would we live on?

But last, it has.
Today, we celebrate Fifty Years!

When his employment took us around the World,
my City Girl knowledge and his Country Boy morals
helped us survive the unknown places where we would reside.

We managed to 'grow~up' with each other.

Although he is still down to earth,
through his devoted work ethics and commitment
combined with my ability to dream big dreams,
together we achieved the heights in our life that others didn't think possible.

Just a Country Boy
and a City Girl, holding on to one another.
