.@VickiBatman - Champagne is a must! #MFRWorg #RLFblog #PlottingPrincesses

Recently, I read a post where a woman said she and her husband were celebrating a big number anniversary and they were headed toward their goal of 80 years. Her comment had me smiling so much, I shared it with Handsome and we had a good chuckle. 

When we start a marriage, we think:

Ten - a long time.
Twenty-the kids are almost gone
Thirty-new life adventures
Forty? Fifty and beyond? I can't really think that far ahead.

When I married, I thought I would be with Handsome for a lifetime. With the longevity of people now, isn't it possible a couple could be married 80 years?  

Are you wondering why one day over and above any other is so special? 

Handsome and I will be celebrating 
an anniversary!

So I shall be pouring myself a glass of bubbly, sitting in my porch rocker with Handsome in his and the poos at our feet, thinking 80 years--yeah, I'm in.

Vicki Batman loves champagne and can't wait for big events to celebrate in style. Coming soon is her romantic comedy mystery, Temporarily Employed. Celebrate with her on Oct 17 on the Plotting Princesses' facebook page.

Vicki, I toast to you and handsome and wish you those 80 years. I had an aunt who made it to 72 years married. She said there were no secrets and that each time brought change they accepted. Getting older, losing, gaining, all that life brings ...you can have all that with company.

My best to you both :)

Hi, Florence! Your kinds words mean so much to me. I can't believe 72 years. My parents have been married 67. Wow! I can remember when they were younger than I am now. Her philosophical statement about the changes in time is so true. Thank you, my friend.
