Romance and Changes

Such a romantic picture, eh? It reminds me of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet remind me of theatre. Thinking of the theatre reminds me of the first time my beloved took me to see "The Nutcracker." It was just before Christmas when we were dating. I had always wanted to go but had never been. He, being the new beau....the romantic.....got the tickets and surprised me. It was truly lovely. I am so thankful for the beautiful memories.

I am working feverishly on the valance for Mom.....in between playing with my blog (what do you think, by the way)......and myriad other tasks. Tomorrow...tomorrow is the day I will complete my project. Hopefully next time you stop by, there will be show and tell. Until then, I hope you find peace and a little romance.

Dear Amy,
Love the new header, though I thought the old one was so sweet.
It's nice to think back, to those dating days. Now and then, my man still surprises me. Take care, god bless you and yours.

I like your new blog look. The blog banner picture is adorable. What a romantic husband you have. I remember our first date too. . . my husband took me to see "A Chorus Line." It was in the late 70's and it was a college homework extra-credit for him if he went to see it and write a paper. I still kid him to this day . . . that I was a homework assignment.

Blessings,

Sher
