~29 Years Ago and counting?

Happy Anniversary to US! Wow a lifetime ago today my dh (I know I know you're thinking wow you look way too young to have been married 29 years??? I started when I was 12 ok?....NO just kidding) and I tied the knot in a tiny ceremony with just us and a few friends. This picture is not from that day but it is one taken in the same decade and the only one I could find to dust off and use for today. (I scanned it in... isn't it amazing what technology can do... look how clear this photo is) It's one of my favorite pictures of my hubby and I so I thought I would share it with you.... Why was I wearing the drapes from gramma's living room? Actually I loved this dress at the time. You can't see it in the picture that well but the flowers are (I think) great big magnolia or peony blooms and there are these little folds that drape over the hips. It's really cute. I called it my tea time dress because I looked like a little china doll. No kidding. I still have this dress in hopes that I would fit into it again someday. That would be a miracle. I don 't know what I was doing with my eyes in this photo either (kind of squinty, I probably had a headache I had 2 little babies by this time and I was tarred I am sure and trying to act like I didn't need any sleep hehe) This photo was taken at an awards ceremony we were at for my hubby's work (he got them all that night it was crazy there was this big display in the front of the room with 20 wooden plaques and they kept calling his name) They were for best sales, most sales, best supporting sales, best newcomer...yadayada you know all of those. Well it was hilarious. He kept walking up to the front of the room to accept his awards. The wait staff bored out of their minds voted us the best looking couple that night, the best dressed couple that night and the best dancers.... They walked up to us and told us they were bored so they held a little contest amongst themselves it was quite a complement. We were in Orlando, Fla at a resort in Disney for the banquet. We were flattered. I must admit I had a lot of fun that night. Oh memories back in the day. Doesn't my husband look all handsome and happy? Young love, how sweet it is!



... yes it just happened to fall on Groundhog day no less. What fun because I love those little groundhogs... That's why I created an anniversary card using this one.... I tried to make it a bit manly with the blue... but baby blue? Not so much. What the heck it turned out sweet anyway. Inside says I Love You, Happy Anniversary to complete the phrase...Simply Said from the Heart on the front...



I also tried this rendition but went back to my original design because I thought it was cuter using the groundhog since our anniversary does fall on groundhog day. Ok so I know it's an opossum in the stamp image but I took creative license. It's my party.... I doodled a tie and a bow to the love birds.... so they look like they are stepping out in their Sunday best for their anniversary. Aren't Anna's Love Birds cutezy cutezy?
