My anniversary


I will celebrate my 4th anniversary on May 28th. For those of you who don't know, I waited until I was 44 to get married for the first time. Did the whole big shebang. White dress with a 4 foot train, church wedding, my boss giving me away (my dad passed away before I could get married), just everything!
My husband is 14 years younger than me. He is my hunk of burning love!
Seriously, he is the man I waited all my life for and the love of my life. God truly blessed me with him.
I am thankful I have had 4 years with him and pray for many, many more! James, I love you!



These are pictures of the unity candle I had at my wedding. My good friend Lenna stitched this candle wrap for me. It is beautiful.
I am attempting to make one for my sister-in-law who is getting married this June. I pray I could do a job close to as nice as this one is.

Happy 4th Anniversary Donna and James!
What a handsome couple! Donna, you were truly a beautiful bride:) still are! (I'll tell you, you and James don't look 14 years apart! You both look pretty darn young. Maybe we should have an id check!!!)
(((HUGS))) and big congrats!

Donna,

I also waited to marry until I was 44. So I know how special it is when the perfect man comes into your life. Congratulations and many, many more wonderful years to both you and James.

Happy Anniversary! I pray that you and your husband have a wonderful anniversary that is filled with many many blessing and many many many more years to come!! The unity candle is just beautiful. I wish that I would have been into stitching when my husband and I married but I was not that into it and I was not good at it at all! LOL

Happy Anniverssary Donna!

You know you don't have to afford it to go to a retreat... it wasn't a reatreat but I hosted a day of stitching at my house! Now I was being a sweetie and fed everyone (7 of us) lunch and dinner, but if you make it pot-luck it can be quite affordable. I think I definately went overboard on the food! LOL I can't help myself when I have folks over I like to have something that everyone will enjoy!

So it wasn't a retreat just a group of like-minded ladies coming to my house!
