While I assume that happily married couples don’t make it their mission in life to annoy each other, I do think that there’s some wisdom in this humor.
Perhaps it reflects the freedom to be who you are. Or it reflects the understanding that it’s not always going to be an easy relationship. Or maybe it’s just an good excuse to laugh.
Come August 26th, we will celebrate our 37th anniversary.
Normally, we don’t make a big deal out of it. We usually celebrate by just going out to dinner. But this year, we’re traveling down to the Smoky Mountains for a few days of mountain air and Appalachian music.
We’re going on this mini adventure for several reasons.
One, because we can. We’re no longer constricted with school schedules. With that in mind, we’re happily anticipating that most of the summer crowds will have gone home.
Two: we’ve picked a place that won’t bankrupt us. We’re renting a cabin where we can cook our own meals (at least most of the time).
Three: because it’s time. It’s time to slow down and mark this point in our lives. It’s also time to celebrate the fact that we still enjoy each other’s company and quirks.
We’ll post some pictures of our trip on Saving Memories Forever Facebook.
Come along for the ride.
