Meet My Best Friend, My Husband, My Love

Yesterday was our anniversary. A day that marks one of the best decisions my heart ever made. Not that it was much of a decision really. We fit together perfectly. There’s a line in an old Demi Moore movie ” The Butchers Wife” that is a perfect description. ” He is my split apart” , two pieces that once were broken then came together to make a whole.

My sweet Sparky ( Bob) is a Michigan man .Born in Maine but raised in Michigan.






He is fisherman, his favorite past time. An amazing Grandpa and he is intelligent, and still furthering his education ( in College).



We love  to take spontaneous adventures together . We both love the Oregon coast.

He has a goofy sense of humor and a bit of a dry wit. He is an amazing Grandpa too.

He has been mistakenly referred to as intimidating ( he is 6’4″ tall and about 245 lbs. ).But that falls away quickly once he speaks to you. He is warm and kind and a true gentle soul .He is my hearts song. I am grateful for our love.

Tell me about your split apart.

  1. I am very happy for you both, Katie. What you have seems rare these days. Happy anniversary, dear friend!

  2. 😀 Sweet post, Katherine!

  3. Awww… What a sweet post. I found my split apart too, so I know what you mean. Bob sounds a lot like my hubby. A quiet man who it might take people a little effort to get to know, but once they do, they’re hooked! Hubs and I have been together for almost 30 years and I swear it doesn’t seem possible that it’s been that long. We love the coast too. (But for us it’s your hubby’s birthplace – Maine!)

    Happy Anniversary! Hope you had a wonderful day yesterday and that you have many, many more beautiful anniversaries to come!

    Congrats! Sweet post.

    We had our anniversary 2 weeks ago, too. It’s one of the best time of the year for me.

  14. Katie, what a great tribute. That’s probably why we are good friends. We have the same thoughts often. My John is my other part of my heart. Thanks for the smile I wear on my face this morning.

    Congratulations to both of you. Really nice post, I love this part “He is my hearts song. I am grateful for our love” its sounds that a Verlaine’s poetry.

    I’m following you from the SSR blog hop, wish you’ll stop by my blog sometime too sometimes !

    have a great week-end both of you

  17. My split half is my eternal love Bill. We have been married for 24 years. We recently renewed our vows in Ireland last month.
    No other person I would rather spend the rest of my life with in this world.

    Happy Anniversary to you! A blessing to still be in love and married for so long.

    I am glad I stopped by your blog from Follow Friday’s -Java’s blog.

  20. A happy anniversary to you both and many more. 34 years for my sweetie and me. We were married at 6:45 am in a shelter house along the banks of a river with knee deep snow outside and a roaring fire inside. We wanted to get married at dawn – a start of a new day and a new life : D Congratulations you two !
