I meant to write this post yesterday but time quickly got away from me! Yesterday was a double celebration for me. It was my 8th wedding anniversary and my 10th year cancer free!! Hard to believe all the years that have sped by. When my first husband died almost 17 years ago I never imagined that I could find love again. And when I was diagnosed with cancer it seemed like wishful thinking that I would ever reach this milestone.
Despite the fact that Lou had a long day at work he surprised me when he came home with these beautiful roses! One rose for each year we have been married. Lovely colors of pink and lavender which I had never seen before!
It was a quiet night of pasta , brownies, a movie, and a dance. We watched one of our favorite movies (at my request). . . "The Notebook". Then we made a toast and danced in the living room to our wedding song "At Last" by Etta James. The dance is a tradition that I began a few years ago.
This photo was my gift to him. I altered one of our wedding photos with sepia and texture adding the title of our song. I put it in an espresso colored frame to bring out the sepia tones. He really like it. He loves the vintage look!
I was glad to spend the evening with him quietly at home. I feel so grateful to have such a wonderful man that supports all that I do and encourages me each step of the way. I never imagined it possible after all I had lost. I tell him it must have been written in the stars . . .
