Happy Anniversary ~

All my Love...
...all my Life...
Saturday will mark mine & Peter's 22nd wedding anniversary...
we were married on Saturday, October 3rd, 1987
at 11:00 in the morning...
we have never been apart on our anniversary ~
except for this year...
as I will be in MI for the Ghoultide Show!!!

can you see my gown in the picture above?
see the big 80's poooofy sleeves?

I think subconciously,
that's why I draw many of my characters
wearing those dresses with the big sleeves! LOL!!!
and see how short my hubby looks next to me?
no, he's not standing in a hole...
see the other groomsmen (except for the tall red head?)
those are his brothers...so, you can see where he gets his stature from...
we've never had a problem with our height differences...
except when I would wear my spike heels!
(those days are loooong gone thank the stars!)
and see the pretty bridesmaid dresses?
not SOOOoooo hideous, hmm?
(I did however, make my girls pull one side of their hair back
with a humongous comb with matching silk flowers on it! teehee!)
where did 22 years go?
they are in us
...still surfacing when we need to remember,
yet laying dormant and undisturbed when we choose not to...
Thank you for Loving me Peter.

Lori, my sincere congratulations to you and Peter on your anniversary. My husband and I made it to 25 years this past March. It's a great feeling, isn't it?
I do love your posts and the little peeks into your life, your crafts and your family.

Lori said...

I can't believe it's been so long. Damn you're getting old, I'm not, just you.

Remember how hung over I was at that day, I celebrated for you the night before. I remember there being way too many cops at the wedding though. lol





You still look just like a princess.

Give Pete and Hannah all my love.

congrats on your anniversary!

Your gown is beautiful. My first marriage was similar in gown design (80's). My second, well off the shoulder low cut version! LOL

Don't you just love remembering the 80's? LOL

Again, congrats!

Congrats to you and Peter. Oh my Gosh your wedding dressed looked exactly like mine and I wore my hair the same way. I loved me some puffy sleeves and big hair. I hope that you and Alisha have a great time and be safe. I will see you when you get back

William Bezek said...

AHHHH, Happy Anniversary! All I see is a groom standing tall next to his beautiful bride!

Lori said...

um...the post that my dear, sweet, long-time buddy-girlfriend Joy wrote, is referring to the many COPS (police officers) that were INVITED to my wedding!!!!

my entire family has been involved in Law Enforcement in some way or another!!!
NOT that we had COPS at our reception for being BAD! (chuckle*snort*) !!!!!! (well, we were bad, but didn't need the COPS there!) LOL!!!
