Today, I will begin a 27-day countdown until my 27th Wedding Anniversary Cruise. I am thankful for the 1st year of marriage. My DH decided to transfer closer to his home place in our first year of marriage. We traveled to the new area to look for a home. As we neared the county line there was that friendly "welcome" sign so many see waiting for them as they enter a new territory. That has always stuck in my mind. In 27 years the quaint little area has burst out at the seams and expanded tremendously.
