Love is in the air, everywhere I look around.
Love is in the air, every sight and every sound.
And I don't know if I am being foolish, don't know if I am being wise.
But it's something that I must believe in.
And it's there when I look in your eyes.
The song playing with this post is Love Is In The Air, by John Paul Young. It hit the charts in 1979. Twenty nine years ago. It is "our" song. If you listen to the words you will see it is about two wary people coming together in love. It is our song.
Twenty nine years ago on June 30th, I married the love of my life. I was 25 years old, divorced with one wonderful son who was 4 years old. Kent (the love of my life) was 32, divorced and raising 3 boys ages 6, 8 and 10 on his own. He was also working full time and going to college at night.
Friends set up a blind date for us. Both of us were leery. We had been hurt before. But our friend insisted we were the perfect match.
They were RIGHT!
Below.....Our wedding day. June 30th, 1979.
The next picture is of Kent and I, plus our 4 boys. At the age of 25 I was the instant mother of 4 boys, ranging in age of 4, 6, 8 and 10.
Next is a picture of us about 5-6 years later...You can see by the look on my face, Kent must have done something to make me laugh. That is the most special thing about him. He always makes me happy....Always.
The picture below is around 1997....when we lived in Naples, Fl.
On a trip to Colorado in 1999. A year prior Kent had heart surgery and things were finally looking good.
Then a few months later....he had terrible chest pains and we thought it was his heart, but it turned out to be stomach related. He lost about 35 pounds so fast! It was scary.
This picture below is taken New Years Eve of the millennium. A few months later he had more surgery and things became normal again.
Fast forward to April 2008. We have raised those 4 sweet boys. They are now men. Some with children of their own. All of them are great men. I am very proud of each of them. In April of this year, Kent and I celebrated out 29th wedding anniversary a couple of months early in Italy. This picture is taken in Venice.
My husband is the love of my life. He is there for me through thick and thin. My rock and my best friend. I love you honey! Happy Anniversary.
