Bob and I were married on December 15, 1973 and just celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary.
Thirty-five years later, there's only one wedding gift I remember - and that was a box of specialty Christmas ornaments, with a note - "For your 1st Christmas Tree". Most of those ornaments haven't survived 35 years and 7 children, but one has. That ornament is a Bride. Every year, I hang her front and center on my tree.
Unlike me, she looks just as beautiful as she looked 35 years ago.
