Special Times - Anniversary and XS Meeting

My DH and I passed a milestone this weekend when we celebrated 30 years of marriage. I truly cannot believe how quickly the years have flown by. We rented a travel motorcycle and took a beautiful trip up in Virginia and saw our youngest daughter while there. Beautiful day for a ride; we really enjoyed it. Considered going to the beach the next day, but alas, the weather was uncooperative. Have to do that next time!
To my sweet DH, God blessed me with you for a husband and I love you with all my heart. Here's to many more years together. :)
Then...
And now...


Another special occasion occured while we were in Florida last week. I met with Wendy, co-leader of Our Friends' HAED SAL blog. She is every bit as lovely in person as she is on her blogs. We had a short but delightful visit and chatted for awhile. Her two boys were as cute and nice as they could be and so well behaved. We exchanged small gifts and many thanks for my lovely kit!
Even though I've seen pictures, it's always exciting to put a real face to the many bloggers I follow and so admire. Thanks for taking the time out of your vacation, Wendy. :)
