  2. Thank you for those beautiful posts. I also get married on a snowy day in January, four years ago. I hope it will last fifty years or more, like Gretchen’s grandparents. I’m so happy for now…
    I do apologize for my bad english. I’m French and try to do my best… but I must make a lot of mistakes in spite of this.

    Best wishes to those who celebrate a wedding anniversary and God bless you all.
