      Oh thank you so much for wishing us a Happy anniversary and for your kind comments about this short, but sweet recipe. I searched high and low for my dress and it was such a hot day that the only option for me was to have an up-do for my hair. I truly had an amazing wedding day and a wonderful marriage. Just so blessed and thank you again!!

      CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ANNIVERSARY KEVIN AND JANINE!

      Awesome recipe for marriage success. Short and sweet but to the point and actually very powerful. Many times the simple logic is the most important in life. I loved it, and yes, your aunt is very wise! The nutrition and cook times are brilliant! Keep those great hubs coming Janine!

      I already kind of know you from HubPages and your work and comments, but I can tell you my first impressions of your husband, who I do not know.....he has the most genuine smile, and his eyes sparkle with happiness. I know if I met him I would instantly like him....and Janine, I can tell you with all certainty that I rarely say that about people I have never met.

      I am very happy for you; Bev and I have an incredibly loving relationship and I always love to hear about others who have what we have.

      Billy, first off thank you also for all your continued support on here, it is greatly appreciated and also so invaluable too. Your comment about my husband is one of the nicest I have ever gotten and coming from you i am truly honored. Kevin is really just a wonderful guy and you are right he is geniune, but I do believe you are too a genuine person so that compliment does mean a lot to me. I am so happy to hear that you and Bev also have a very loving relationship and same here about loving to here about others who are truly happy.

      i have been married to the same woman for 32 years now and believe you me when she rested her head on my shoulder casually while watching television together yesterday I still swelled up with pride and warmth and felt like i was 21.

      Oh yes my dear friend this is again so truly beautiful and so nice to see a match made in heaven!!!

      I commented on a hub on Love at first sight ;and did I believe???

      Oh yes I do without a doubt;it was love at first sight for me and almost seven years later as in love as ever!!!

      When I left my ex back in 2002 I made a promise to myself that my life would be my own and i didn't want a relationship of any kind ever again.

      However never is a long time and I somehow found the strength to trust and I am so very glad that I did.

      I love your hubs Janine and again I am posting this one onto my FB page.

      Here's to so many more for us both to share on here.

      Eddy.

Thank you too for sharing this one also on your page, I truly do appreciate it!! I agree here is to many more for us to both share and hope you are having a wonderful day!!
