In May of 1996, I’d been writing for about 3 years for AVON Books.  My third book, PROUD WOLF’S WOMAN, was due to be released soon and I was at work on my fourth book, GRAY HAWK’S LADY.  Paul and I met in February of 1996 and were married in May of that same year.  So I thought I’d post a few pictures of that time period (we have very few pictures of our honeymoon due to the company where we’d taken the pictures to be developed losing them). 
Remember that time before digital pictures?  But come with me at least for some of the few images at that time period that we did manage to salvage.  Hope you will enjoy.  Please excuse if pictures are a little crooked.  We had to scan them in.
The first picture is of us on our honeymoon — I think we were in Las Vegas.
  The next picture was snapped shortly after we’d started dating and was taken at my brother-in-law’s home in LA.
Next is a picture of the beautiful scenery of Montana, where we honeymooned.  Although I’m in shadow, the mountains are clearly in view.  Of course, next is a picture of Paul, also snapped in Montana.  And the last picture was taken also in Montana, but at Paul’s mother’s house.
Also, let me wish a very Happy Anniversary to Starr Miller and her husband, who also celebrate their Anniversary in May.  Starr is a reader and also a very dear friend.
Hope you’ll forgive the spacing here.  The pictures are older and we had to upload them and well…etc., etc. 
Thanks so much for letting me take you down this journey of memory lane.

    • Hi Carol,

      And thank you for coming here and commenting. We lost most of our honeymoon picts unfortunately — something that probably wouldn’t happen in today’s world. : ) So appreciate your comment.

  2. Welcome today. Thanks for taking us down memory lane with you and your husband. Happy Anniversary. Hope it is full of laughter and love.

  3. Happiest anniversary! I’ve read so many of your books already! Nice to read your celebration blog today.

  4. “Happy Anniversary!” May God Bless you with many, many, many more!! You know my husband went his first 10 year HS reunion{he graduated HS in 1974) and we took the film to get it developed , well, they lost the pictures, so we know the feeling,about getting pictures lost for a special occasion. I’m glad you got some of your pictures and they are very nice pictures. God Bless you.

  5. Hi Alicia,

    Goodness, another reader told me that she’d had her honeymoon pictures lost, too. All in the days before digital, huh? Not that I particularly like digital — I still think the 32mm takes better pictures.

    Thank you for your blessings, also. Means a lot.

  6. Congrats, on your Anniversary. You & your hubby make a awesome couple. I have enjoyed your books for many years now & still look forward to your new ones. I have a question for you. How do you write all the Indian words in your books? A special typewriter? Your reader always…..
