Our Wedding Anniversary!

17 years yesterday, July 21.

I know it may sound so cliche, but I really am one, blessed woman (and he knows he is one, blessed man :)

The kids brought us breakfast in bed.  Too sweet!

Our day was kind of shot since Sally had a swim meet but it wasn't a complete waste.  There's always dessert, right? (I spun off my idea from Waltzing Matilda's idea.)

Isn't this the most gorgeous strawberry shortcake you've laid eyes on?!


Oh honey, let me tell you...it was as fabulous as it looked!  Three layers of sponge cake with real whipped cream and fresh strawberries.


And the color for July is red, along with ruby being the gemstone.  Which I do hope to receive... someday....(*grin*)

I purchased it at Central Market in Plano.  (If you like Whole Foods, you'd love Central Market!)

This afternoon we headed over to Grapevine, Texas to lunch at Esparza's.  Do you live in the DFW area? We HIGHLY recommend the place.  Great Mexican food!

David and I brought Clementine along.  She was an angel, completely and utterly entertained by "people watching."  (Ha!  Ha!  A girl after my own heart.)

Where neither of us are perfect and we both have our own quirks that can drive each other up a wall, I can look back and see how clearly God tips the scales in our favor, being filled with grace through His blessed sacrament.  And it is only by using that grace that keeps us moving forward.

  13. This looks delicious! My husband and I just celebrated our 10th year anniversary, words cannot explain how much we are still in love with each other. We finally have stopped giving each other anniversary gifts because we feel like they don't explain how much you love someone.
