10 year wedding anniversary!

Yesterday, 19th June, was our 10th wedding anniversary. It's so strange to think about that I've been married to my lovely husband for that long. We'd been together for 10 years before we got married as well, so that brings us up to 20 years together... phew... That makes me sound very old, doesn't it...?? (I don't feel that old though)

I still have my wedding bouquet.... This is what it looks like now.... 10 years after... and if you look closely, you can see the caketopper in the bottom right corner.
...and this is what it looked like back then (sorry for the bad scan);
I also still have my wedding shoes. They are the same as my mum got married to my dad in, back in 1971... so they have turned a bit yellow.
They're still in their original box....
...and if you look closely, you can see how much you had to pay for a nice pair of wedding shoes 38 years ago... 39 Norwegian kroner (that would be about £3.90 or $ 6.20)
And here we are 20 years after we met... still happy together...

Gratulerer med vel overstått 10 års bryllupsdag! Dere var et nydelig brudepar, og så flott brudebukett!
Artig at du brukte de samme skoene som din mor giftet seg i;)

Congrats, Tonje! 10 years is a long time ... which we will celebrate in 2011 (HUH!).

I don't have my bouquet anymore (gave it to my late granny who couldn't come to the wedding), but the dress & shoes still exist. :) Here's to the next 10 years in your life together! :)

Gratulerer med overstått bryllupsjubileum!
Så morsomt at du kunne bruke Sonjas sko. Something old? Hva var det nye og det blå?
Nydelig bilde av dere også. Koselig med sånt.


Vi har vårt den 24. og da har vi vært gift i 14 år og vært sammen i 20. Himmel og hav som tiden flyr.

Vel overstått bryllupsdag.Vet ikke akkurat om de skoene var så fine.Jeg tror til og med at de var billige den gang jeg kjøpte dem.
Men i det minste var de hvit dushess eller hva det nå heter og det passet så fint til kjolen.
De var vel ikke av beste kvalitet heller.Din svigerfar måtte jo reparere dem utpå bryllupskvelden.
Men det er jo artig at du sparer på dem,et lite klenodium.
Mamma.

Gratulerer med bryllupsdagen som var! Moro å ha noen av tingene fortsatt, buketten min ble kastet etter et par år - da var den i grunnen ikke noe å vise fram lenger.

Anne said...

Hi again, Tonje! I've nominated you for a Lemonade Stand Award over on my blog! Hope you'll pop on over and pick it up! :-)

Koselige ner, flott at du hadde Sonjas sko da du giftet deg!
Jeg har nå omsider funnet deg. Det går rundt i hodet på en gammel dame når hun må holde rede på så mange bloggvenner.

congratulations on your 10 wedding anniversary!
Mine will be on 22 October this year too. I still fit in my wedding dress and I still have it. My wedding bouquet was one single silk red rose. I don't have my shoes anymore they were $2 and second hand. They still killed me on the day.
