Thirteen years

Hmmm, should I be concerned with the number 13? Thirteen years ago today Rich and I were married. We got married in my mother's backyard under an arbor that Rich built for the occasion. My nieces were the flower girls. They were all so little back then!!

This picture is in a frame a friend gave me years ago. As lovely as it is, I think it's also funny! At the bottom of the frame are the words: For Better. You can move a lever and the words say : For Worse. I will admit there are times I move the lever back and forth LOL!

After our wedding we went to Nova Scotia for our honeymoon. I remember one of the things I loved most about Nova Scotia were all the lupins we saw as we were driving around. I have since tried to grow some but haven't had good luck! I suppose it might be time to try again. While we were in Nova Scotia we did some souvenir shopping. One of the things we bought was this framed picture of some lupins. I love this picture. It has been hanging in our bedroom for the last thirteen years.

Ever since Tim was born when we have gone out to celebrate our anniversary Tim comes with us. It is nice to be all together on our special day.

take care,

Your post reminds me of a book I used while teaching. Miss Rhumpis or something like that. Are you familiar with it? I didn't even know what they were before this book Don't think we have them in the south.
What a cute picture frame!
Happy anniversary! Hope you enjoy your celebration!

Good morning Dawn. I love your post this morning. Congratulations on your wedding anniversary. Your honeymoon sounds divine. I just planted lupins and I don't even know what they look like. they seem to be growing ok. We'll see. I love that you bring Tim when you celebrate. It is a good thing when children see their parents are happy. So much sad things happen to kids these days. Your wedding photo and the arch is beautiful.

Love ya, Jeanne

Happy Anniversary. I like that you celebrate with a family affair. You are so good about celebrations.

Dawn, you look beautiful. That Rich is an incredibly lucky man.

Time to take another trip. Come south, dear girl, come south.

Hi Dawn, thanks for visiting my pink post, saw your lovely pink bag, what a shame about the wool and how frustrating. Happy Anniversary to you, hope you have a lovely day!
