I'm trying to keep track of my hobbies and travel and health. I especially want to document my ongoing progress of long term things like my scrapbooks. With that said I must close and get going on those things.
Phil and I going to a prom. Probably his brother's junior prom in 1963.. I know it wasn't my junior prom or senior ball as my mom made both outfits and this is my only store bought prom dress.
I always look for the patterns that my mom used for those dresses.. How magical to be able to see the way we looked on that day.
I saved every corsage that I was ever given. I'm sure Phil's mom picked them out and they were very special. Well thanks for stopping by tomorrow or Sunday I'll be posting my latest stitching finishes. I have been stitching up a storm and loving every minute of it.. Happy Trails until we meet again.
Today is my husband Phil's 70th Birthday. It has been a wonderful journey that we have been on. He is a terrific man, a super father and has always made me feel like a queen. We have been together for a long time, since high school. We are the cliché' childhood sweethearts. I'm so glad we are.
Phil, his mother Bettie and me in 1965 before he was off to serve 2 years in the US Army including a year in Viet Nam. I was always very proud he did his duty, but still it was a very long wait until he returned.. We were engaged before he returned and married in the fall of '66.
Just a brief note to say that I am very excited to be heading home to Florida and our little house and yard. It has been a great summer in many ways, and now it is time to get back to routines. I have always loved this time of year. A new beginning of sorts. I have a million plans for crafting decorating and arranging when I do get there. Now that we know where and how we will be spending our summers away from Florida we can manage what we brought down there after our home was sold last year.
So my friends please stay tuned for some new ideas and as always cross stitch doings and finishes. I am definitely doing some today as I work on the packing and arranging here in the camper,
Ready for what we called "Class Night". 50 Years ago before we graduated our class hosted a night of remembering. We presented a gift to the school and did small skits. Our theme was the World Fair of '64. The arrow is pointing to our exchange student, the first for our small school. I'll be adding these precious pics to my book of scraps of my class and other things from that time in my life. Thanks for stopping by.
