Last Thursday my husband and I celebrated our
Thirty Eighth Wedding Anniversary
We started dating on June 25th, 1970
We were engaged on December 24th 1971
We were married on August 12th 1972
Senior Prom 1971
Wedding Day August 12th 1972
Now thirty eight years later our six children are grown and married.
We have nine beautiful grandchildren, with one on the way.
We celebrated by having a quiet dinner together at home
This is the table setting from our anniversary dinner.
Cake top from our wedding cake
White vase, first vase with flowers my husband ever gave me,
it had roses in it the first time
Hydrangea from our garden
Happy Anniversary mirror, a gift from a friend on our 36th
We've only just begun, a gift on our 25th
"We've only just begun" a song done by the Carpenters was sung at our wedding.
Place mats and Napkins
thrifty finds at goodwill, $1 each
Plates also Goodwill finds
2 for $3, I wish I could find more of these
Simple but cozy using one end of our very long table.
It sure is easy cooking for two
Chicken breasts with a lemon sauce, mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes
We both enjoyed the quiet evening and simple dinner together.
We feel very blessed here in our" Nest"
