100 Word Challenge: Forever

anniversary roses

Yesterday, June 14, was my 30th wedding anniversary.

Our wedding was held the day after my husband graduated college, and about a week before we moved three hours away from family and friends. The event was the culmination of one blind date and three years of courting – two years of which were long-distance – before internet, before email, before cell phones, before Skype.

We began our adventure together when my husband was 19 and I was 20. (There’s a 10-month age gap if you’re keeping score.) We were such babies. Too young for such a grown-up undertaking, but the whole marriage thing appears to be working out for us both.

I’ve spent more than half of my life with my husband. I did a little calculating and that breaks down to:

  • 30 years
  • 360 months
  • 1440 weeks
  • 10,088 days (accounting for 8 leap days)
  • 242,112 hours
  • 14,526,720 minutes
  • 871,603,200 seconds

And…

I would do it all again. I hope we have at least another 30 years together.

This week’s word is:

Forever

Using “forever” for inspiration, write 100 Words – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow wordsters.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. Congratualtions on your Pearl Anniversary. We celebrated Silver this year, and it doesn’t seem that long at all. After all this time, Hubby can still surprise me, and when we went away for our ‘one night stand’ to celebrate that and my 60th, I discovered something new……….. he likes coco pops! Hope you have many more happy years together. 🙂
