Birthday gift

I was pleasantly surprised on my 55th Birthday when I saw the "Coach" shopping bag. I knew it had to be a "Coach" purse in that box, inside the shopping bag. My daughter knows what I like and she was determined to full fill my wish. I told her I didn't want her & Jeff spending that kind of money on me. She has 3 boys to get ready for school and she could use the money towards that. She said she had a coupon....and she wanted me to have it. So, I will accept it, without guilt. It came from the heart. I have had so much joy in carrying it, not because it's a Coach, but it is practical and I love how when you open it up, you see everything. It has handy pockets on each side and also the ends have a handy pocket as well. She knows my taste. And it matches my Coach wallet and my pink Coach umbrella. Thanks Steph, Jeff, Noah, Carter, Gray & Ivy.....

Our wedding day 8-2-74

37 years ago today, Mike and I said "I do". It was a beautiful summer wedding with lots of yellow & lime green. Daisy's and yellow roses. I loved my dress, especially the back. It is still as white as snow, packed away in my cedar chest. I look back and wonder why I got married so young. I have no regrets though. I am glad I was a young bride, young mom and now a somewhat young Mimi.
We are celebrating our Anniversary this Saturday, the 6th at Serenity Springs in Michigan City. We got to choose a Bungalow cabin overlooking the lake. Ours is called "Sunny Delight". It will be so nice to get away and relax. I would love to celebrate our 40th in Hawaii. Who knows, maybe our ship will come in and we will be able to afford to.
