My favorite story happened about 7 or 8 years after we were married. By then I had 4 little ones. One day the 3 older ones found our wedding album. I found them looking at the pictures on the living room floor. Holly (probably about 7 then) flips to the first page (the picture above) and says to me "Mommy, who is that lady with daddy?". I answer, "Oh that is daddy's first wife!". She just looks at me kind of confused!
Yup, in 7 years Mark still looked exactly the same. And actually he still looks like this, just a bit older. Me - well by the time the kids saw this my long hair had been cut to shoulder length and instead of contacts I had glasses. Nope - that wasn't mom! And that was way before I gained all the weight! Just think what they would think now! To this day I laugh when I see our wedding photo, and think of Mark and "his first wife"!
And what Anniversary surprises I got in the mail today! WOW! First off I got my swap surprise from Betty! I had sent Betty that fall table runner and crow/pumpkin wall hanging. Well look what I got from her! Totally AWESOME! Oh if you could only feel the wool on that table mat. It is soooo soft! And the socks are to die for. Exactly my colors and they feel so comfy!
And then in package #2 I got my prize from Tracey! I got this wonderful address book and she even sent this great Australian Applique magazine! How fun is that!
Thank you Tracey and Betty for making today even more special!
