A special day!



24 years ago today, 25th January, on a wet and windy day, my husband and I were married.
It was not the wedding held outdoors amongst a beautiful rose garden that we had planned, but we had to make the dash through the rain puddles, sheltered under an umbrella to an indoor wedding.
We were told that it was good luck to have a wet day, so we can be thankful for the blessed life we are able to share together.
Happy Anniversary, my dear.

To all my blog friends, I hope that you are having a wonderful week

Hugs
Carolyn

    See you soon as I am nearly finished with this break and miss blogging very much. Mostly I miss all you sweet friends, but taking some time to recoup has been helpful.

    Blessings to you and your sweetheart for many more happy and healthy years together.
