Happy Anniversary






(the H was our wedding topper and the flowers were his boutonniere)

This is my "dairy slab".
I have wanted one FOREVER! But to find a real one is... well, impossible! And if you do, it is literally thousands of dollars.

My husband, who I married 6 years ago today, knew that I wanted one. So for Mother's Day this year, that sweet man had this made. Can you believe that? He actually contracted a potter to make it for me.

I tell him I love him about 10 times a day. Probably too many times. But how many days go by that I don't tell him that I know that I am the luckiest woman in the world to have him? I was not always this blessed. I have a habit of taking his generous spirit for granted. I feel safe to assume he will always be here for me. He makes me feel that it is okay to be that comfortable.

I love you honey! I would marry you again in a heartbeat.
I am THE luckiest woman in the world to have you!
Thank you for everything you do and say!

Happy Anniversary!

I'm joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for A Cloche Party!

Something new!! I've never seen a dairy slab. How sweet that hubby went to such trouble - I'm totally impressed that he knew how to go about getting one made - much less being observant enough to know you wanted one!!
