It absolutely is true…50 years ago on September 20, 1969, Roger Hull and Bonnie Decker got married in Wilmette, Illinois… and I can’t find the wedding pictures anywhere…so I started looking at other photos of us through the years. We’ve always had fun. We have had somber and sad moments like all lives have, but mostly we’ve been interested in each other’s work and have shared a keen enjoyment of looking at things and being together. In honor of those 50 years here are some highlights:
Congratulations Bonnie and Roger!
Oh so wonderful to see the time go by! Congrats
Time is zooming here in the final quarter…
Lots of happy years and experiences! So blessed to be a small part of it for over 30 of them…from Florence, Italy to Northeast Salem, to Siletz Bay homes we’ve shared some great and often hilarious times! Happy happy golden anniversary friends! May your 50th day and year be filled with warm remembrances, and future magic moments!
love to you travel companion extraordinaire…

Happy Anniversary to two of my favorite people! Love you guys.
Aaah, the passage of the years—yet looking at you and Roger, over five decades, is glorious: You both remain beautiful, obviously still enamored with one-another, still enjoying lives rich with friends and trips and art and exhibits and other assorted, but multiple, pleasures (like your shiny brand new floors).
I shall soon be sending you my own Book of Jeff, featuring my husband in various scenes of repose.
Love to you and Roger,
Arent you glad you married Roger, Bonnie, and not Dick.

I’m very glad I married Roger Lisa…for one thing I got all these lovely tumultuous Hulls! xo
Dearest Bonnie & Roger, weddings photos would have been good, I’m sure, but what a fantastic flash- forward trip through 50 years of your lives together! Thank you so much sharing these photos. Those two little delicious, delightful kiddos way back when, are a couple I would recognize anywhere, always.
Loved this post so much. (John & I were married September 20-something, in ’64)
Sue-Del we actually remember talking about whether we’d celebrate 50, and here we are in the blink of four eyes…xxoo B
Love the pics of your history together. Happy 50th! What a wonderful event to celebrate. Love the crowns! ❤️
Thanks Mary Grace…xo
Such great fun, life, especially when you’re together. Fun to “date” the pictures by “the way we were”. Hugs and congrats to you both. Jo
Thanks Jo…of course I have no photos of my tantrums etc….just as well! xxoo
To think I met you just short of 50 years ago! Every moment with both of you has been pure joy. You are two of the best people I have ever known. Much love.
Mare we feel lucky that you have been a constant over the years…we love yoou…xo
Wow! LOVE is the constant I see in all these pictures!
Congratulations Bonnie and Roger on an amazing milestone…and (now that we are in December), Happy Holidays! As for me, I marvel that it has been 40 years since London. I think of you both very often – sending much love and best wishes for 2020
LAURA!!! We think of you often wondering where you are…the year in London was a year of magical thinking.xo
