Duane was in good spirits, as it won't be long now till his fiance, Maricel will be coming to the United States all the way from the Philippines the early part of March. They are planning on getting married the end of May if all goes according to plan. Just the two of us will be the Maid-of-Honor and Best Man in their wedding.
Both Valentines, I am sharing today are probably the most risque of all the Valentines that belonged to my grandmother. Of course, some of the wording didn't have the same condensation back in the 1920's, as they do now. Thanks so much for all your sweet comments regarding the Valentines. It is a pleasure sharing them with you.
This weekend my hubby, Dennis informed me I had received a package in the mail. Well, wouldn't you know that Pretty Lady, a.k.a. Carmen, of Strawberries and Champaigne sent me some of the prettiest dish towels I have ever seen. Thanks so very much Carmen, I love them and will always think of you when I use them.
Pretty Lady, sent them simply as a way of thanking me for particpating in her "Funky Sock Exchange", she hosted last week. I had been paired up with Marilyn, and thought you might like to see the card I made her to go with her package.
Pretty Lady, is such a dynamic, sweet and uplifting blogger. She and her hubby live in Southern California and have the cutest little girl who plays a great game of soccer and has a wonderful relationship with her Mom, making crafts, and just hanging out together. She posts some incredible recipes, she and her hubby make together, and lovely poems, and shares a love for gardening! So, if you get a chance drop by and say, "hey".
Made some delicious homemade Roasted Potato Soup yesterday, that was so good! I served it with some some skewered shrimp, and a bowl of fresh fruit. We will probably be enjoying leftovers for a couple of days, for lunch anyway. See it there cooking...slowly it thickened up to just the right consistency.
So it is just the two of us filled with hope, as he always is always there with us whenever we need Him. He is first in our lives. We are so glad to have new friends like Pretty Lady, who's lovely "Thank You" gifts, were such a sweet surprise. Looking forward to many new blessings this year, a new baby granddaughter, weddings, and moments to just be together as each day spent together is so meaningful! Hoping you treasure the moments you have together and that they are filled with blessings too!
