"This is dedicated to the one I love...."

So goes the hit song made famous by The Shirelles in 1961 and later by The Mamas and the Papas. This is not a photo of me with my husband, but I posted it for all lovers out there, because today marks my 31st wedding anniversary...and as many years in Belgrade. In 1977 Belgrade was in the Socialist Federal Republic of Jugoslavia (SFRJ), then the country became the Federal Republic of Jugoslavia (SFR), then Serbia and Montenegro, and now it's just Serbia. Names come and go, but I don't, so I am dedicating this photo to my husband, who has weathered storm after storm with his/our country and with me! (The photo was taken in January at Grinet, one of Belgrade's coffeeshops that is like Starbucks.)

A belated congratulations for your 31 years. That's an impressive amount of time. I can not imagine the changes you have witnessed in those passing years, to what I undersatnd to be a beautiful country.

The photo is a classic, retro, yet timeless. The song choice, perfect.

To the next 31.
