I came across Alida's blog when i was planning my wedding and i couldn't be any happier because during this period in my life...i wanted to meet and be around individuals that were living their vows the way i wanted to. I have never met Alida however as soon as you begin reading her blog Blackpurl's Knitpickings...an expat's journal, you get to know the woman, the wife, the mother and the expat.
It is an honor to know you Alida & Tom and your 30 years of marriage is definitely an inspiration to us all.
Thank you for sharing how you and Tom have lived and continue to live your vows on a daily basis. We all need to hear again and again that love is not a feeling but a decision especially during the "worse" days.
Question of the Day: Alida and Tom have been married for thirty years and that's such a wonderful testimony to living their vows! Whose the longest married couple you know? And how many years have they been married?
