Forty years is a long time. At least it seems like it is to me. Throughout these forty years we have had much fun just hanging out together doing fun and interesting things. That is the best part of the relationship…having fun.
So, for today’s post I am adding a bunch of our “together” pictures without the kids. Some have stories and some don’t. Since our early years had relatively few pictures, some of them are repeated herein as I try to show a quick chronologically correct history of our togetherness. I love this girl so much. Only rule in this post…no pics with the kids. That is coming in tomorrow’s post!
First off…our very first photo together. Taken at the Provo Temple in Provo, Utah in January 1979. And I think it is the ONLY photo of us together without my having a mustache.
Our first photo together ca. 1979

O…yes, I kissed Julianne…why not?
I think we took this in Salt Lake City before we were married…all in fun. I think we made a nice 1800s looking couple.
Then we were married…July 1979
David and Julianne Wedding Photo July 1979. She still looks this beautiful 40 years later.
