Happy Anniversary to Us!

September 9, 1978

Where have the years gone??? Dave and I will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary this coming Tuesday, September 9! The photo above was taken just after we said our "I Do's" atop Elk Mountain, which is located in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. Needless to say, we didn't have very many people who were willing to hike several miles up to the top for the ceremony :)

When we picked Elk Mountain as the place to get married, we were both living on the refuge, Dave was a manager trainee and my Dad was the Chief of Law Enforcement. While Dave and I left to tour the U.S. with the government, my family remained in Cache, Oklahoma, so it's a very special sight to see Elk Mountain looming in the distance when we go back to visit.

What do you think about my wedding attire? Don't laugh!! Those high-waisted pants with the "elephant" bell bottoms are coming back in style! Click on the photo for a closer look at the groovy clothes :)

Now, for a little business! Being the geeks that we are, we will have our laptop with us on our anniversary trip--did I mention we're going to RENO!? All three of our shops will remain open and you can purchase as usual. The only difference will be that any items purchased during this time won't be mailed until Friday of next week.
