1st Anniversary

Today is our 1st wedding anniversary & we're off to a roaring start (we slept 'til almost noon.) After a picnic lunch on our deck, we're likely to go out for a hike or some such. Happy to report that we're still both as happy as we were when this picture was taken. It's also been a year since we swore off the evil empire (our last purchase there was our wedding rings.) My birthday is also coming up on Monday & Charles' is on Tuesday. We're off for a few days to celebrate everything (although we have no big, obnoxious plans.) Charles is the best thing that's happened to my life & I count that blessing at least a few times every day.

Congratulations to you both and early birthday wishes. It is wonderful to be with someone that you know in your heart is right, isn't it?

Enjoy each other!

Charles Gramlich said...

You're very sweet. Now I'm going to go into the other room and give you a kiss.

Brave Astronaut said...

Oh, thank you Charles, but go kiss Lana, she will appreciate it more.

Happy Anniversary! How exciting! Those pictures are great, but the one of your faeries makes me want to write stories. Gah! The chaos of my writing mind.

Well hope you two love birds have a kicking good time at your secret location.

And a Very Happy Birthday!

Happy anniversary Lana! I know I'm late, so I'm sorry for that but why not spread those celebrations out and make them last longer - you should have a whole week of festivities! Good luck to you both and many more happy anniversaries to come xxx

Michelle's Spell said...

Hey lovely Lana,

Happy anniversary and birthday! Damn, I can't believe it's been a year. I'm so glad you guys are together and happy. In my experience, a happy marriage is so rare, but with such exceptional people, it's no surprise. I love the pictures with this one!

Lana Gramlich said...

bird; Thank you much. :)

michelle; You're very sweet. Thanks, hon!

Larry said...

I'm glad you're both happy.-I'll bet you would be a fun couple to hag out with.

Lana Gramlich said...

larry; Thanks. :) Just let us know if you're ever headed our way!

Michelle (artscapes) said...

My warmest Congratulations... And a big hug!!

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, michelle. :)

Marvin said...

A belated happy anniversary and hopes for many, many more to come.

I applaud your abstinence from the evil empire, but don't know how you do it. What we cannot buy locally (and there's a lot of that), we purchase while on the road doing shows. We just cannot wean ourselves away from Wally World's one-stop-shopping -- and bathrooms, too.

Lana Gramlich said...

marvin; Thanks much. It's been more difficult to avoid the Evil Empire than you might think, actually! If I was on the road, doing the shows & such like y'all, I KNOW I couldn't possibly...

Heidi said...

Congratulations to you and CAG - both - wonderful to know how good like can be after so many years of waiting.
hugs, Heidi

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, Heidi. We've actually lived together over 5 years now, but it's nice to have the "formality" of marriage, too. :)
