12 Years

January seems to be the month to marry and we were also young. Last night we celebrated 12 years. Ella and Kate made me try on my wedding dress and veil again - I think I love it as much now as I did then. The whole wedding was 1940's styling; the dress, the flowers, the black Buick. It was the best day of our life.

Many anniversaries ago my man gave me six of these linen placemats and these two plates. The plates are over 70 years old and the card said "I hope we are together as long as these two have been"

It's nice to be surprised by such romance. I set the table last night with both the placemats and the plates. 12 years seems like a lifetime on one hand and on the other it's gone so quick.

Congratulations on what sounds to of been 12 very happy years of wedded bliss. What a romantic your hubby is, what special gift did he give you this anniversary?? It'd have to be something to top that year... LOL.
Hears hoping you spend many more happy years together as husband and wife.

Your wedding photo is beautiful - Happy Anniversary! How romantic is your husband - what a wonderful present. Those plates are just stunning! Perhaps he could have a word in my husband's ear ......!!

That's so very sweet. I can't believe you can still fit into your wedding gown! There's no way on earth that I could. It's probably 4 sizes too small now. ;)
