I enjoy reading these "memes". I just don't know how you're supposed to pronounce that word! Is it mee-mee, or meme, as in seem? ;op
It's fun getting to know our blogging buddies better.

Tracy said...

Tina said...

I like this Marriage Meme.
I'm going to play along and do this one too.
I will post mine probably next week sometime.

Thanks for sharing. It was fun to learn more about you and your husband.

What does that word Meme mean?? Anyone know?

Tracy, you mentioned you were 18 and Verne was 21 when you married. My daughter and her beau will most likely be 18(almost 19) and 20 when they marry. Any words of wisdom?
