Our Anniversary is on the 27th. We are going to St. Augustine tomorrow for a couple of days. We love to visit this old Florida city and it's not that much traveling time so we will have plenty of sight seeing time!
We're both looking forward to the time together in a more relaxed setting than this little farm offers us!

I 'antiqued' this photo for this posting! LOL- I thought that appropriate! A couple celebrating a 48th. wedding anniversary must surely qualify as 'antiques!' :)
This is a poem I wrote for Charles on a past anniversary. I have posted it before but it's for my husband (for the both of us) so I'm posting it once more.
These years we’ve been together,
down this road of life…
through calm or stormy weather…
through the pain and strife…
through the happiest of seasons that, so,
out weigh the rest…
sharing what we’ve treasured…
time has been our test!
Both learning, as time passes,
the craft of compromise…
how, overtime, things change a bit,
may take us by surprise.
Sometimes change feels threatening,
seems like the winter’s wind
that howls in it’s persistence,
impatient to come in.
Changes are just ripples,
can’t touch us - you must know-
or break the bond created,
all those years ago.
