Pure Sweetness

Every March 8th for the past 22 years, my husband has brought me a small bouquet of 2 pink roses and 1 white rose in honor of our first date. He is such a sweetheart, and I am a blessed woman indeed!

Be blessed,

How romantic!!!!!! A simple pleasure, indeed, but so heartfelt and loving. The heart surely treaures its loved ones, memories, and beauty far more than things, doesn't it! I feel I shared a "simple pleasure" with you today, Lea, and I thank you for it! Buster ate my roses!!!!!

How sweet is that!! Happy first date to you both. You must have married one of the good ones.
What have you been making in craft land? I just got another COUNTRY LIVING BOOK TODAY FROM A USED BOOK SITE, ITS CALLED"HANDMADE COUNTRY" Do you have that one? I haven't looked at it yet, but I think its a good one.
Been sorting the material that Miss Wilma sent me, getting some ideas.
Hope all is well in your world.
Hugs Nancy Jo

Oh thank you girls so much! My husband is a darling. He actually sat me on the couch and positioned my arms to look just like I was the night he met me. And then he retold the story to my boys about his thoughts about me that first night. Talking about sweet! I still swoon over him! LOL
