And they said it wouldn't last...

Can you believe it? Today, we are celebrating 27 years of marriage!

We were married in 1982 in Hermiston, Oregon.

Doug received a job offer from Sandia National Labs in Albuquerque, New Mexico, so we packed up our meager belongings and moved 2 weeks later.

It has been a wonderful adventure. We have traveled zillions of miles (by land and by sea), met lots of wonderful people, and seen some amazing sites.

Next year, we hope to sail as far south as Nicaragua. After that, the South Pacific, French Polynesia, and all of those wonderful islands.

Can we make it 27 more years? We don't know where we will be or what we will be doing, but we are sure going to try!

PS: We got a good laugh at looking at our old photos. We were sure styling!
