20 Years

 

The other night, my husband celebrated his retirement from the military (though he doesn’t officially retire until August 31) with his coworkers.  Here is is giving his speech.  He just had a small-ish get-together with his coworkers and some of our friends at a restaurant.  He didn’t want the pomp and circumstance of a formal retirement ceremony.

He had intended to give me my “retirement gift” for being married to him and supporting him for the last 20 years in the military that night -a new charm for my Pandora bracelet.  One that I have been eyeing since he bought me my bracelet and first charm.  He forgot.  but I forgive him.  He had a lot going on.

Here is the rest of the charms that I have.  He has bought all but one that was given to me by two dear friends as a going away present from my bee that I ran for the last 4 years (the crown because my husband already gave me the ‘queen bee’).

Here is the actual bracelet.  I love it!  Each charm has a story and I love each and every one.

I love my husband and I wouldn’t have traded the last 20 years for anything.
