Joining in with Ms. Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday 's "M" posts...
Like I mentioned in my last post, this past Sunday, Feb 12th, was our 30th Anniversary. With all the upcoming and exciting family celebrations we have (Girly~Twirly's baby's (aka our grandbaby;'s) due date is March 13th...Girly-Whirly's graduation from dental school in May and then her wedding two weeks later, my hubby and I didnt go on a trip to celebrate this anniversary.
But we did have a Marvelous weekend when our dear friends from Virginia drove down to visit with us. So much fun...love the time spent laughing and catching up with each other!
We've been family friends since 1989, when the guys flew helicopters out of Hawaii.
Saturday, we all went to a Matinee and stopped by my hubby's office... and then, they treated us to eat out in Savannah. This was at the Crystal Beer Garden...operated since 1933...love all the old photos on the wall, the Big Band era music playing, and the good food and awesome fellowship.
They had to leave the next morning...their visit seemed to pass too quickly, but we were so happy that they were able to drive down our way.
But the Marvelous Moments didn't end...
My handsome hubby surprised me when we got home with an unexpected surprise! He had a gift for me... (My eyes are closed in the first photo, cuz I didnt like the photo with my eyes open! haha ...Oh, and don't mind all my white hair...I have never colored my hair and want to see what I look like "au naturale" :o)
My gift to him was a card with some money to go towards passports for the two us, so I felt a little bad that my gift to him was not an exclusively "his" gift.
They are sooo beautiful! The diamond earrings are set in a "Martini setting". I have always admired diamond studs, but never expected these. (usually, I have some clue, but nope, not even a hint!)
Here are some other orders completed, sent and received. (I try to wait until I am sure that they have been given, before posting).
This Monogram celebrates a Marriage ~
This email was sent: ...I am in need of sketch for my best friend. We will be heading back home to Alabama after Christmas and was hoping to give here this sketch as a present. Please let me know if there is enough time!!!
I would like to have their wedding information sketched. I just love the one you did for my cousin Kara in Texas.
Thank you Clare for yet another order!

"This was just amazing! I had seen a fellow milspouse order one for her husband's retirement ceremony and knew I wanted one for my husband. He loved it and it was such an easy process to get the image I wanted. Thank you!!"
*****This one celebrates a Marriage and a Military commitment.
