Kats’ Korner: Celebrating the Good Times


As time passes, I realize how precious it is to create memories.

 

Jeff and I were blessed to celebrate 20 years of marriage this past Wednesday. I can’t believe how fast time has gone. It seems like yesterday that we eloped to Dead Wood, South Dakota. It is just beautiful there! We said our “I do’s” and had a wonderful time taking in the scenery and many places to visit.

In honor of 20 years of marriage, we really didn’t plan anything special. We had recently purchased a boat and had only had it out once. To us, buying a boat was a thrill and quite a treat! Jeff took the day off of work, we loaded up the boat and went to Summit Lake fishing.

Some women maybe wouldn’t like the idea of fishing on their anniversary, but I loved it. I grew up fishing and so did Jeff. I also knew how much the boat means to Jeff. Seeing how happy the boat makes him brings joy to me as well.

We had a glorious day! The weather was perfect and the fish were biting! We caught catfish and blue gill. One of the catfish Jeff caught was six pounds! It was the catch of the day!

When we were done fishing, I drove the boat around the lake a few times. I had never driven a boat, but it isn’t difficult. We cruised around, taking in nature and all its’ beauty before calling it a day.

I can’t wait to go boating and fishing again!

Another precious memory is in the books.

Life is good!
