They are so so pretty and I keep a vase of them in my cottage as long as they bloom each spring.
I love using my computer at this desk...
The wonderful part of having a lap top is that....
you can move around anywhere you want with it....! well... duh!
We will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary today...
and are right...I was only 10 when we married !! :)))))))
Our children and grandchildren are honoring us with a reception
and I wanted to show you this BEAUTIFUL announcement....
* is so pretty...
snow white with golden writing and those
So classic and also so fun !
STACY, you did a fantastic job on choosing these pretty invitations.
I love them !
But not anywhere even CLOSE to how much I love you and David and all 10 of our grands and 1 great-grand.


DAVID and KATHY, STACY and JENT and all of our sweet grands..!

This means the world to your Daddy and me and we appreciate all the hard work you are going thru.


THIS is a happy place to sit and visit all my blogging buddies that I love so much.
I am sure that I will have a FEW photos to show you after the anniversary reception.
I am so looking forward to seeing old friends..
Some of them go back all the way to 50 years !! :))
