Spring Forward and Anniversary

Hello Ladies!

    I have been having issues with the internet/computer and haven't been able to post.  We are going to try to get this one published. Please let me know if pics are not showing up!
     I will be linking up with Susan at BNOTP for Tablescape Thursday. Please tell Susan hello and check out the lovely tablescapes being posted this week. They are amazing!

March 18th is a very special date

for two people who met,

fell in love, and promised themselves to each other.

Through the years of discovering who they are as partners,

have learned to be patient, caring, understanding, communicate, compromise, but most importantly....

how to create an everlasting love.

With hurdles to jump and bridges to cross.....

....have truly understood the meaning of growing old together.

 As another year moves forward and the hands of time move forward for spring is near.....

I embrace the thought of spending 22+ more years in creating that magic....

You are my soul mate, my best friend and will be forever in my heart.
Happy Anniversary Mr. Me!

Until next time....
