It all started with a leaky wash machine hose!...
Last week I walked into my laundry room to find water all over the floor. I hate when that happens! Thank goodness it was only a leaky wash machine hose that could easily be corrected thanks to my husband, Mr. Fixer. After cleaning the floor I decided it was time to tidy up the laundry room. I had cabinets and drawers neatly filled with clothes we have had for many years because my hubby doesn't like to part with anything. He was so good about helping me sort things out. I was very surprised that he actually agreed to give away a pile of things, unless of course, he's snuck out into the garage and brought it all back in a little at a time when I haven't been looking. He's been notorious about that sort of thing in the past. Well, our little project went so well that I actually got him to sort through the clothes and things in our closets. It wasn't so much that our closets were messy as that they were packed with clothes and coats from as far back as the sixties in some cases. Now my closets look beautiful, spacious, and roomy. Even little Charli's closet got a make over:>) I will have to show you a picture of it some day. All of her clothes and hats hang on little hangers arranged according to the holidays and seasons.
I don't know about you but we have many boxes of pictures and things we have collected for our children through the years. I made a pile for each of them and I have been slowly giving them they're old report cards, papers, and projects. I had even kept some of they're grade school Valentine's cards. Needless to say, it was a very nostolgic week for me going through all of these things.
As I was going through our pictures I found some pictures of my hubby and I. I know I don't usually post pictures here but since these are so very old, and some of you have shared your older pictures, I thought you might like to see what we used to look like :>)
These are pictures of my hubby and I way back in the sixties the year before we got married the first time. I think I have told you before that we eloped and then remarried later in our church.
Where has all the time gone?
The picture at the bottom is of my hubby and I around the time our youngest son graduated from high school many years ago.
Of course we are a lot older now. Instead of saying we have gained weight, have gotten pounchy, and became much grayer, let's just say we have aged and matured :>)
Forty five years later, and with all of life's ups and downs, I can honestly say my hubby is still the one for me ♥
That's it! No more strolls down memory lane for me. I have a lot of things to do to get ready for Saint Patrick's day and spring!
I hope all of you have a beautiful and blessed day ♥
With warmest regards, Carol
