Sometimes it’s hard to believe how fast time flies. It seems like yesterday that I was in college for my undergraduate degree…and those were the days! I loved school. Every semester, a brand new world–interesting things to learn, different people, new challenges. Fortunately, I had a good job and could support myself and my horse (I worked part time as a dental hygienist), so I stayed in school for years, changed my majors several times and just enjoyed every minute. Skiing in the winter and horse shows the rest of the year filled my spare time.
Then I got married, moved away (with horses and cats in tow!) and enjoyed the adventure of small town life in Illinois. Quite a change from living in St Paul to attend the U of M! A year later we moved to eastern Iowa, where we’ve been ever since, on ten acres with our horses and kids.
And how that time has flown. I guess I’m feeling a tad nostalgic, because yesterday was our 37th anniversary. How can that be?! During that time I got my Master’s degree, we had three amazing kids who are now grown and married to wonderful people, and we raised a lot of horses. There’ve been good times, and some rough times, but I’m so very thankful that we were able to weather the storms and are still together. I appreciate my husband now more than ever!
So…what are some of your happy memories from the past?
