Happy Anniversary to Greg and me! :)
We eloped to the Leesburg Courthouse, with our two best friends being the only people who knew we were getting married. I had carefully calculated the numerology around when we should get married, and chose 11/28/88 at 11:00am. It was a Monday morning, a beautiful Fall day. After the ceremony, we stood on the steps of the Courthouse for pictures, and then took Doug and Missy to lunch. Then we ditched them, and spent the rest of the day drinking champagne.
As we were taking this picture, I remember that a trash truck drove by. It was obvious we had just gotten married (I mean look at the picture!) and so the trash truck guys waved and "yay'ed!" at us and honked their horn. Greg whispered "do you know those guys?" and, even though I didn't, I whispered back "not all of them, honey."
We announced our marriage to family a few days later, bringing on lots of anxiety from everyone because we had only known each other for 4 months. LOL Hey, we were young and stupid and in love (and alcoholic - I'm sure that influenced our decision as well). And here we are 22 years later, still happy and in love, even though we sobered up!
I pulled this picture out of the frame it's been in for 22 years, to notice little red dots all over the photo. I don't know what they are. (Also, I weigh 10 pounds less today than I did in this picture at the age of 35!)
We fell asleep watching TV very early last night after eating turkey dinner leftovers. LOL Now it's 2:00am and I am wide awake, drinking a cup of tea. We are planning a very low-key celebration later today, where we will decorate for Christmas, and next weekend we will visit our friends on the Eastern Shore.
I pulled out my numerology book, to remind myself why I picked that particular date. Here is some of what it says:
This is a master number period which requires more, and in return, gives more than any other number vibration..... share your good fortune with others....extravagance can lead to losses, so keep a balance ... marriage under this vibration is fruitful and successful.
