The More Things Change

The redbud leaves are starting to change
...they look like little hearts...

The first day of fall….

…the changing of the seasons.

…it’s also our wedding anniversary…

32 years of watching the seasons change.

Countless things have changed. But, oddly, it all seems the same.

32 years.

I should probably take this opportunity to say something eloquent. Something profound, romantic…insightful.

But, I’m coming up short.

All I can think is

You know the more things change the more they stay the same...


Just take a look, we’re living proof and baby that’s a fact!

Farmer's Market 2016
(thanks for the photo, Lisa!)

And, that’s not even my own line…I borrowed it from  Bon Jovi  (and, believe me…that fact is truly unsettling)

I know we never envisioned this life all those years ago. Life has handed us more than one plot twist along the way. But we’ve weathered the storms, stuck it out and here we are…watching the seasons change...


...on the first day of fall.

Happy Anniversary to US!

(and yes, I realize we really HAVE changed)

                    …and Happy Fall, y’all!

Wonder about our story? You can find it here…


  1. Awww, look at you two. If someone had told you 32 years ago that you would be running a market farm, would you have believed them? -Jenn

    1. Nope, nope...oh so much NOPE!
      I am still wondering how this happened. LOL

  2. What a lovely post. Congratulations to you both. I've been enjoying your blog for a long time and watching you two work together is so inspiring. Take care. Here's hoping you another 32 years.

    1. Thank you, Kris, both for reading and for posting a comment!
      You don't know how you made my day. (and I apologize for taking so long to respond)
      Have a lovely week!

  3. What a lovely post Barbara - and what a lovely photograph of you both in 2016. Happy anniersary - and many more to come.

  4. Beautiful photos all. Congratulations to both of you and many, many more anniversaries.
