Elizabeth and is perfect for charm packs, don't you think?
So we traded it in and now my ring looks like this. Isn't it pretty? My original diamond even looks larger. Yay for nearly 43 years of marriage!
I had the greatest afternoon on Tuesday because I was able to spend a couple of hours visiting with Stephanie (@stephiepeterson). She was in California on business, and she was only 1 1/2 hours away. It was wonderful visiting. But the time was waaaay too short! Good thing we will see each other in Minnesota in July.
Do you know anything about the name of the street you live on? A few months ago, there was an article in the paper about some local women who have been friends for decades. The maiden name of one of them was Sample, and the article mentioned that "the Sample family has a long cattle ranching history...." I'm pretty sure that's the origin of the street we live on. If not, I'm going with it anyway. And I'm glad I took this picture because we have lived in this house for nearly 27 years and I can never remember the name of the street that t-bones into our street less than a block away.
I saw this in a magazine yesterday. Big fan of:
1. Paint chips, and
2. Perpetual calendars.
I definitely MUST make this (sorry for the glare in the middle...but you get the idea).
I can't remember where I saw this. Sometimes we tend to take care of everyone around us, but not ourselves. Keep this handy. Read it often.
