Silver Reflections

I can't let the week go by without remarking upon a significant milestone.
This week my Snugglebunny and I celebrated 25 years of (mostly) wedded bliss with a top flight meal at our favourite Indian restaurant.
It hasn't always been easy. There were times when she was wondering "Is this all there is?" and times I wanted to run screaming into the night. But with a lot of remembering the vows we took, forgiveness of each other's shortcomings and many cups of tea we made it through. And it's been worth it.
After a quarter century we've mostly figured each other out and still enjoy each other's company.
The after work cup of tea together has become a solid family tradition and I credit it with helping us through the rough spots by carving out a time to talk each day.
Our life has definitely not turned out the way we dreamed it would 25 years ago, but the journey has been excellent so far.
Plus she's a wizard in the kitchen, has excellent taste in music and books and thinks my miniatures are a much better hobby than many other male pastimes. What's not to like?
I'm definitely looking forward to another 25!


  1. Beautiful post, my own count is 20 years of happy marriage now. A solid family project is probably the only pillar to survive in this increasingly convulsive world. My warmest congratulations indeed

  2. Thanks.
    Marrying her was the smartest thing I've ever done. Career-wise my life has been pretty bad, but at least I got the important things figured out.

  3. Congratulations! Finding the right partner really is important...and one who tolerates our (more often than not) silly hobby is even better.
