3/27/12



It was 31 years ago today. I got up and started getting ready. I put on the special dress I had bought for this momentous occasion. He showed up at my door in his Plymouth Volare looking so fine that it just made my heart leap with joy.


We got in the car and headed toward the WV Turnpike to take us to Pearisburg, VA.

From: Barboursville, WV To: Pearisburg, VA

When we arrived, we went to the medical facility to get our blood tests done.


We had to wait about an hour for the blood work to be completed, so they suggested we go to Pizza Hut and have lunch.


Once we ate, we went and got the results and went to the Giles County Courthouse to apply for our license.



We were asked where we would like to be married and we said a Baptist Church. We were sent a couple of blocks over to the Pearisburg Baptist Church where we were married by the Rev. James O'Rourke.


After we were pronounced man and wife and my hubby kissed his new bride, we headed back home to start the rest of our life.

Thirty one years later and I still love him as much today as I did then. Happy anniversary to the love of my life.

Thanks everyone for the anniversary wishes. Yes, Tiffanie, back in "the day" you had to have a blood test to get married in most states and it was usually a three day waiting period. We went to VA because there was no waiting period. Yes, Rachel E. we did it all in one day and drove back home to honeymoon at a nice hotel in our hometown. The we went on an official honeymoon to the mountains later that year.
