Aren't they the cutest couple!
Last May they took a trip to visit their friend Jay in London. Here's a picture from their overnight trip to Paris .. what fun!
My hope for you both is that you can always remember how you felt on that very special day ..
An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow (one of my favorite quotes).
I'm grateful my son found someone that is his equal in every way ...

This lovely RED bag was a PIF from Jean ... and it's perfect! And I can't wait to use it! Of course I told Jean that it was too pretty to use .. but I can't wait to use it anyway! Look how lovely the lining is! Jean is great with a sewing machine!
And here's a close up of the stitched design on the front of the bag .. it's a little pocket :)
This was Jean's first ever PIF and omgosh she did a wonderful job! Jean's new to blogging, but not to cross stitch .. go over and say hi .. she's such a nice lady, for a Buffalo Bill fan *lol* Thanks again Jean for the wonderful bag .. I'll think of you everytime I use it :)
Hope everyone is having a good week .. I'm really glad the week is almost over .. I spend way too much time wishing my life away at work .. but dammm I just have way too many things I want to be doing other than work .. but owell, it does help pay for my many additions! lol
No stitching pictures yet again, but I did get my Halloween F&S exchange done .. woo hoo! Sure is nice to cross things off the deadline list!
May your day be a peaceful one tomorrow and I hope you can take a moment and remember what happened to all of us 7 years ago .. doesn't seem like it was that long does it? heavy sigh ...
I'm off to stitch a bit before bed ...
I'm grateful for a new stitching bag and a new blogging friend ...

We had a great time in Bristol, TN. The weather was great, not too hot .. the race was awesome, even though my driver struggled all evening .. I met up with a few Matt Kenseth fans and enjoyed a few margaritas with everyone. If you are a race fan and have never been to the Bristol night race, you really need to add it to your to-do list. This is really an incredible track .. it's like sitting in a football stadium that holds 161,000 people and 43 very fast cars going round and round! lol Here's a couple of pictures .. this one is a few of the Matt fans hanging out at the campsite ...
and here's a picture of Terry, Robert and me ...
While I was gone I received this wonderful award from a few fellow bloggers .. Kim, Dawn, Mary Ann, and Karol ... thank you ladies for the award. I'll pick a few blogs to award later this week. I still feel very very behind since getting back from vacation.
Veronica received my fair and square squares while I was on vacation .. here's what I stitched for her. The design is 'I Love Cross Stitch' from the July 2008 issue of The Gift of Stitching magazine by Maryse Dupont of Les grilles de Maryse. I really enjoyed stitching this for Veronica. I'm glad she liked it. I think I'm going to stitch this a couple more times ... sure would make a cute pinkeep, don't ya think?!
I didn't do much today .. was nice to just be lazy .. I stitched and watched a couple of movies. The first one was with Michelle Pfeiffer called I Could Never Be Your Woman. Definately not an award winner, but a very enjoyable movie and one you can stitch and watch. The other was Diminished Capacity with Matthew Broderick and Alan Alda. I really enjoyed this one and would highly recommend it.
I've been stitching, but it's nothing I can show .. yet :) Hope everyone had a great weekend! And thanks for all the comments about my L*K double flipits .. I seriously need to stitch on it this week.
I'm grateful for vacations ...
