Hubby and Me

Since many of you have written asking questions about my ability to ski so much, I’ll tell you a bit more about Hubby and me.
Hubby is 20 years, 6 months and 13 days older than me. At first Hubby wasn’t at all comfortable with it. I think he felt I should be with someone closer to my own age. The truth was, after I lost my daughter when I was 26, most guys my age just didn’t have the life experience to understand me.
Hubby did.
It took a while for him to understand that I’d rather have whatever years of wonderful with him, than 50 years of nothing special with some guy my age.
We married when I was 29 and Hubby was 49, and we have now been married 18 years.
Hubby worked as a pilot until he retired at age 60 in 1998. In 1999 we moved back to our home state of New Hampshire and built our home.
We both love to ski, to hike and we wanted enough of a yard to have fruit trees and a garden, as well as play area for our beloved pets.
At times I find it is a bit odd to be living in retirement at age 47. The friends we do things with are all older than me, but over the years, that fact has become less and less important. Now, they all look at me as a contemporary.
I love the time Hubby and I have now. We spend our days together sharing life. Skiing in the winter, hiking in the summer, but always we’re together. That is so nice.
Even after 18 years, he is the first person I want to talk to or share with or show things to. I feel incredibly lucky that we found each other.
