Today is Our Anniversay

Today August 15th, we have been married 47 years...I thought this picture was so cute, but not us. Tonight we are going out to dinner, and maybe a show. There are so many memories. And to write them down would be a book...But first and foremost, Arney is my best friend. I have known him since I was 14. I think you should really like someone and then love comes so naturally. Someone you can talk too, someone that hears you! And when the hard times creep in you can talk to your best friend. I am a chatter box, Arney is not. I am a night owl, he is not, I am very social, he is a bit of a loner. But in all the ways that count are the same. We have had to work hard in this life, nothing has come easy. But the simplest of things make us very happy. Our children are the best thing we have ever done.
Slowly I have added some more of my little cottages...




Here are just the ones I did in creams and laces. It was fun to make the little flowers, a first for me. click to enlarge...they are all different, one of a kind:)



I do not know what is wrong with my posting, but it is fighting me, so far this is all I can upload...I will try to send more pictures later. I made 14 cottage pin cushions, now they are wrapped and waiting for me to find a poem or saying to go with them. It is really nice here today after our rain yesterday. It was down in the 60's, which is not normal at all. So today we are back in the 80's and everything feels so fresh. Tomorrow I go to get new glasses...then shopping at Costco. We will not get out of there without spending to much as a rule. But it is always good..I continue to work on my weight loss, good days and bad. It is not always easy to stay on track...but I continue to try!!! Wishing you a wonderful summer day.

Such a lovely bunch of pincushions you created. Did you make them for a swap, presents, or are you planning on selling them. They would be a great item to sell on etsy. I know I would buy one ;)
They are beautiful!

You must have added the info on the anniversary after I saw the cottages and commented.

So here I am back again to wish you a very very Happy Anniversary.
Forty seven years is a long happy marriage! The relationship sounds solid and wonderful. Our friends call us the "odd couple" because we are different in many of the same ways you both are. So we know it works!!! Hugs!
