We were married on a hot summer day. Danced the night away at our reception and headed off on our honeymoon to "Da-U-P", which translates into the Upper Peninsula if you live in Michigan :) It was ninety degrees at home and 60 degrees there! Just about froze my little hind end off (I can say "little" because it really was...then) and had to find somewhere to buy a sweatshirt.
We couldn't afford a professional photographer, so a family friend took our photos for us. Keep in mind that Prince Charles and Princess Diana's wedding was still fresh in my mind when you look at this :)
Now I'm not one to get all lovey dovey and say sickeningly sweet things about my spouse but I do want to say that I love him very much. Even though he once bought me a vacuum as a present (not just once but twice!), chased me with a bat in a paper bag, and trimmed my crabapple without asking!
Now anyone that knows my hubby, realizes he isn't into public displays of affection. He doesn't bring me flowers at work or write me love notes. No romantic strolls on the beach or holding hands, and I'm good with that.
What he does do, is make me just about anything I ask for. Including the beautiful gate & pergola in the side yard, both decks, our computer desk & the gorgeous oak shelves above it that hold my scrapbook albums, my scrap desk, armoire, & cricut cabinet, the coffee table slash storage ottoman in the front room and many more. His way of showing his love is to build me things.
He is a great dad and a wonderful husband and I'm thankful every day that I met him (even if I don't always show it)!
Here's to twenty seven :)
