Sharing a Beautiful Day- Our Anniversary!

Posted by Alexander Irving under General, Ramblings

It’s Our Wedding Anniversary!

Normally I only post about stuff that’s important to you.  Today I post selfishly about something that is very important to me.  A good number of you who subscribe here know us so I thought you’d enjoy this personal sharing.  It is a large piece of who we are.

Sharon and I have been together as partners in life for 31 years and partners in business for over 20.

Those of you who know Sharon well know how amazingly fortunate I was to have met her back in the crazy days at Clairol and then to have her decide to keep me around for all these years.

Sharon was, and is, a life-changer … not only for me, but for everyone in her life that she has touched and spent time with.

I love you, my darling Sharon, with all my heart. If I had a photo of me on one knee proposing I would post it here, but I didn’t have a camera handy when that moment happened. Happy Anniversary!

P.S. There’s still time to send wedding gifts 🙂

    Congratulations to you both! These days it’s an amazing accomplishment to have such a long and strong relationship!
    I was thinking ( you know I think a lot…)about how most people these days won’t sew a button on a shirt, they throw it away and then go get another one. Seems they do the same with relationships – if their relationship/marriage needs mending they rather throw it away and get another.
    Again I congratulate you both!

    Congratulations on your anniversary. Here’s wishing you many, many more.

    Please let Sharon know that I “mislocated” her email address, and could not find it via your company website. Let her know that I finally contacted Bob O. from Clairol. Those were great days at Clairol.

    Also, please let her know that the pundit/columnist I referred to, whose name I confused with hers, is Susan Estrich. Her columns are via Creators Syndicate Inc. I got Susan’s Wikipedia info via Google at

    Stay well.
