Happy Anniversary!

(photo was take on our 25th anniversary last year at Lake Louise, Alberta)
Today is our 26th anniversary--yup, me and Dr. John. Hard to believe that we have been married for so long. Of course, no marriages are like fairy tales (only if you are Will and Kate). We all have our ups and downs, but I believe that you can still have happily ever after if we work hard to keep the marriage happy and healthy.
33. happily ever after
 Here is my simple card to celebrate this special occasion.
 If there is any "secret" to keep us long and happy together, it is "Laugh Every Day"!! Dr. John sure makes me smile with his cheeky remarks and humor! My obsession with card-making certainly has grown on him as he lives vicariously through my blogging. Dr. John even encouraged me to attend Scrapfest this September in Minneapolis AND he is tagging along! You have to love a man who supports your love and passion, right? I look forward to many more "happily ever after".
