Good afternoon, dear hearts..
Today Terry and I are celebrating our 44th anniversary..
Can you imagine..
I think we must be old..
I remember when his parents were celebrating their 45th and I thought they were antique.. smile..
We are having a huge blizzard here in Maritime Canada..
The wind is fierce and you can't see across the street but it is warm and snug here inside..
All those years ago it was a rainy warm Spring day..
I was 17 and he was 20..
I woke up early and went and did some chores while my Mom and Terry's Mom prepared the food for our reception..
I think it was turkey and salads..
I remember taking Mom's car and picking up our wedding cake and how it almost fell over because as usual I was driving too fast. smile.
My dress was simple but with lovely lace and I wore a wee veil over my bubbles..
Remember those? grin..
And gorgeous pink roses...
We were married at 7 p.m. on a Thursday evening..
The next day was Good Friday so we had a long weekend for our little honeymoon to Halifax, Nova Scotia..
It was rainy and windy..
It was and is still my favorite kind of weather.. smile..
My, how the years have flown..
Today we feel so blessed to be together and enjoying our retirement years..
God has been so good to us..
He has blessed us with a wonderful family and love that has lasted down through the years..
We are having a lovely dinner here at home due to the weather..
We went to town this morning before the storm began and picked up a few things..
Lovely fresh scallops, shrimp, herbs and such to make my signature dish... smile..
Thank you for all of your lovely comments lately..
You girls are so sweet..
I will give you the recipe for the squares in the last post next time..
God bless you all...
He is faithful..
