"Oldest Living Couple On Earth"

Recently, a blogger that I went to high school with, Erika, posted this link on love,
and I am so glad I checked it out!

Who better to ask Love advice, than the "Oldest Living Couple" in the world, with 85 years of marriage under their belts.

Here are my favorite bits from Herbert and Zelmyra:

Divorce was NEVER an option.
Respect, support & communicate with each other. Be faithful, honest & true. Love each other with ALL of your heart.
Remember marriage is not a contest- never keep score. 

"Everyone who plants a seed & harvests the crop celebrates together"
We are individuals, but accomplish more together.

Read the full article here.

I did a little time traveling and took a picture of Will and I when we are OLDER than Herbie and Zel, and break their record...

We look good for 110 and 111, right?

In other news:
I won my FIRST giveaway this week, as well as my SECOND!
That's right folks- both in one week!

Kelly @ Messy Dirty Hair surprised me first, and then Lesley @ My Lively Mind the next day!
I had JUST been thinking that I would never win and BAM!
 I guess I had extra good karma ;)

Ps. I have a little surprise up my sleeve for tomorrow...Don't miss out!

LOVE this post! So many couples are quick to throw divorce out there and it's not right! When times get tough we shouldn't rub that option in our spouses face!
You two will be the best looking 110 year olds EVER!
