It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

We were so young...

It's been forty seven years since this photo was taken in my parent's back yard.
What a wonderful day it was. We were so young. It was "the beginning".
Where did all of those years go, my love?
It's been so good , this choice we made,
and we're not done yet.
Happy Anniversary to us.

Happy Anniversary you two! I was 'young' when I got married (almost 39 years) but at the time I thought I was so worldly and mature. My how we have grown...you two found a wonderful thing together and that is very rare these days. Congratulations!
