Five years and the passion still grows

As you have read over the past few days my husband and I share a passion for model railroading. It was that passion that in a round about way brought us together. I met him on the Internet through a Pennsylavania model railroading list. I had lost the love of my life and his wife passed away a few months later. He was in Wisconsin and I in Connecticut where I had lived most of my life. Emails in September led to phone calls in October which led to him flying out in November. He arrived on November 18th and on the 20th he proposed and I said yes. On March 11th with my children and a few close friends gathered around we were married. The Justice of the Peace was a model railroading buddy and our wedding bands are Pennsy Keystones that we had specially made. The photo below was taken the day we had our wedding blessed in May once we had sold my house and moved me out to Wisconsin. I don't regret it for a minute. Here is a photo we had taken at one of those photo places you can get dressed up at. It graces both our computers and I smile everytime I see it.
