~ taken at our Hawaiian family wedding luau~
..My handsome hubby's mom sewed my blouse and his shirt.
We were married in Wisconsin with all of my dad's family present. And then we flew to Hawaii as newlyweds and I met his family and friends for the first time.
I was thinking how blessed I am that of all the people in the world, the Lord knew who was the one for me...
...that my handsome Hawaiian hunk's first military duty assignment was in Holloman AFB, New Mexico...which was also my Air Force dad's last military assignment, before he retired.
...& this phrase ~ "in or at the exact moment!" ~ , my hubby and I have said to each other...and it so very, very often fits how alike we are in so many ways.
Perhaps it is that we have grown to think more and more alike after knowing each other for almost 31 years and being married for over 29 years.
Yes, I am so very thankful and blessed to have a loving, caring, man who loves the Lord and his family with his whole heart.
~ taken in Hilo, Hawaii~
...about 28 years after he first brought me home as his new wife.
I love when we either say something "at the exact moment"... or one of us says something and the other was thinking the very same thing "in the exact moment". (I do admit that I still like when we "coordinate colors" with what we are wearing, when we are out and about. haha)
...with Marine parents, Life with my Littles, & Semper Wifey for Military Monday blog hop.
...with Trisha's Follow Me Wednesday.
...Free Pretty Things For You's Whatever You Want Wednesday.
...with Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday's "O"
...and with Alicia for Friday Photo Flashback.
...and with Mel for Fancy Friday.
Here are some more art orders:
The first three were created for a husband and wife
...& whether they consider themselves "opposites" or "like two peas in a pod", my well wishes to them on many, many years together to grow in love, laughter and memories.
Thank you Jordan for ordering yet another of the art that I do for another friend's wedding gift. The photo of the actual puzzle pieces to secure their envelopes that this couple used was such a creative idea. Like "pieces in a puzzle...a perfect fit."
This one is from a dear blogger friend! I love her ideas for this family tree. LV, thank you again for another order and for your email:
"...I received my package today. You did a marvelous job. I truly like it and sure they will....Thanks so much for everything. You are just the best in the line of sketching..."
Another dear blog friend sent me this email when hers arrived:
"I literally just got my picture from UPS! I LOVE it!!!! It's so awesome. Thank you so, so much. I can't wait to hang it up :-)"
And this one was an order for Kayla's husband with her email: " Thank you so much!!"
Thank you also to Melodi for thinking of the art I do for a gift for her husband and thinking of tying in together his rank insignia and his unit crest! And thank you for your sweet email:
"You are a truly talented person! The art piece was in excellent condition when I received it, and thank you for rushing it to me..."
