24


We have been married for 24 years.
That is half my life and longer than I wasn't married.
Wow!

This is a little game I like to play called "If the Dress Fits...Wear It"
Since I had h-pylori this year it fits. Trust me, it's not worth the weight loss benefits.
I haven't tried it on since the tenth anniversary.


Here's to 24 more.

Tom is running a marathon in Connecticut.
He's been in Massachsetts on business.
He is intense and a little crazy...I still love him.

Happy 24th! That wedding picture of you guys is so awesome - I haven't ever seen that one, I love it!

Happy Anniversary!

Diane, you are going to die, my wedding dress looks suprisingly similar to yours! I wish I had a digital pic of it to download. I've been married about half of what you have (married in '97) and I'm so not kidding that my dress could be your dress's sister. However, on my dress, the sleeves came off the shoulder a little bit more. I purchased it for $230 off the rack at one of those wedding shows. I was in college at the time and I saw it, tried it on, and decided to buy my wedding dress instead of buying books that semester. My mom was not happy with me at all.

Because I have a 7 month old and still "losing the weight", I doubt I fit into mine.

I love reading about your adventures, somehow I think mine will be a lot similar when I'm celebrating my 24th!

What?!??!!? Tom's in CT? Is he running the Hartford Marathon?!?! I just dropped my sister off this morning for the race. E-mail me back RIGHT AWAY! (because this is of the most urgent nature...wouldn't you agree?:)) eastcoastevans@sbcglobal.net

Happy anniversary! I can't believe you fit in your dress! Well, actually I can. You look amazing! Your dress is so beautiful.

We've been married 24 years too, Your dress is much more classy than mine. Mine looked like Princess Diana's dress, big poofy sleeves and tons of lace.

Happy 24th!

Happy Anniversary Diane & Tom! That's awesome. Love to see the pictures, and I can't believe Tom is at another marathon! I think he's addicted. :0)

Lauren in GA said...

Happy Anniversary!!! You look beautiful in your wedding dress!!! That dress is beautiful and I love that a bride could wear that dress now and not look outdated....My dress was way, way, too poofy to ever be worn again.

I love that last picture of you two! Such a great looking couple you are!

Jennie said...

Did your mom make your dress too? Annemaire told me she made her's. I LOVE that you can still wear it after 24 years, that's great. Maybe I will be back down to my wedding dress size by then, probably not. I wore my moms wedding dress to senoir prom. We cut the sleeves off and I loved it. Congrats on 24 years!!

alison said...

Wear that dress to your sons wedding. Can you imagine? You'd steal the show!

Christie said...

You are still hot, even after all these years. He knows that, right?

You look so rockin' in your wedding dress! Tom should don the tux and you two can paint the town red! :0)

Happy Anniversary!! You look fabulous in that dress! 24 years?? (And you said that you don't do marathons! 24 years seems like a marathon to me!)

Ilene said...

Lovely. Congratulations on 24 years!

What is your secret to a long and happy marriage (since you shared with us the secret to still fitting into your wedding dress).

Lisa-Marie said...

YOU ROCK that dress! Amazing. And it IS beautiful.

Congrats on 24 years!

P.S. I LOVE your yellow ceiling. I'd really enjoy that in my kitchen.

Jen said...

Congrats!! You look amazing.

Jenibelle said...

I can't get even a thigh into mine.

Jealous. (I take full responsibility).

Well, maybe it's those ancient people who discovered chocolate. It's THEIR fault I can't fit into my dress.

But you look Mahhhhvelous!
