Happy Anniversary & A Contest

Tomorrow is our Anniversary. I was supposed to have pictures of our wonderful drive to maine today, but you know what they say about the best made plans;) So, we are staying home and will enjoy the things we can do close to home. It is hard to believe that 34 years has gone by.

This is what happens when you get married in the 70's. My father said Bill had to cut his hair, so this is the result. It was hanging to the middle of his back;)



And Tomorrow is also father's day. We both lost our parents a few years back and we miss them, but the good memories of the times spent, will always be with us. This is my mom and dad.



And now, in celebration of our Anniversary, I am giving away a free pattern or booklet, you choose. All you have to do is leave a comment on my blogs from now until next friday. You can leave one comment in each blog I do and get that many chances to win.

Happy Anniversary!!!
This really is the best time of the year to get married.

We just celebrated our 48th. We live in the Ozarks and enjoyed our day close to home also.

Happy Anniversary!! Your wedding picture looks quite like mine although the ruffled shirt hadn't come into fashion in 1971...
My Mom had an outfit just like your Mom's...LOL It was even the same color!!

Happy Anniversary wishes to you both, Debbie. Loved the wedding pictures and boy, did they bring back some memories!!

I was married the 1st time in 1970 but he turned out to be a jerk and left me and the kids. But Gerry and I celebrated our 25th anniversary just a couple of months ago. This one is a keeper.

How about posting a picture of the two of you now so we can compare the old with the new??

It must be the season for anniversaries! It's fun to see how styles have changed through the years. I didn't get married until 1991, so I still had the big puffy sleeves. It's now plain, strapless, and no beads. I wonder what's next?
