What’s your secret?

Jan 28, 2020 11:05AM ● By Cloie Sandlin

For those of you who don’t already know, my long-time boyfriend (now husband) Sam and I finally tied the knot at a Parachute ranch in October.

Surrounded by family and friends on the banks of the Colorado River, our wedding was everything we’d hoped for—with a few surprises thrown in (like a bull elk crossing the river while we were taking family pictures).

In the months since our wedding, several long-married couples have lovingly shared their advice to a happy and fulfilling marriage. If you have any advice for us as we enter this new chapter, I’d love to hear from you! Write to me at [email protected] or PO Box 3895, Grand Junction, CO 81502.
