Our Anniversary Weekend

March 9, 2010 at 10:05 pm Leave a comment

When I was a little girl and dreamed of my wedding someday, I thought my parents were very weird to pick March for their wedding. There’s nothing romantic about March. Then I met Chuck. Then I dated Chuck. Then I wanted to marry Chuck so badly, the date didn’t matter. How long could we plan a wedding in? Three months. That put us in March. And God in his delightful sense of humor and sentimentality landed March 7th, my parents anniversary, on a Saturday in 2009. So, as is often the case, you grow up, and come to find out your parents were pretty smart after all.

But in spite of getting married in such an unromantic month, on March 7th of 2009, when it should’ve been 40 degrees, and bride and bridesmaids should be shivering, it was 80 degrees without a cloud in the sky. It might as well have been June.

Wasn’t it a gorgeous day?

It wasn’t quite that warm this year. But it was still 60 out, and brought back very fond memories of that very precious day. Here’s some of the beautiful hints of spring we saw this weekend….

Building the strawberry patch, with the new circular saw I bought him for our anniversary.

He wants corn in our garden so bad. There’s no homeowner’s association in our neighborhood yet, but there probably will be one by the time we ever move out to prevent our kind from ever moving in again.

Starting Seeds

Healthy roses… I love my roses…*sigh*

Look at them come up!

Trees budding in the front yard

Cute flowers that will be soon meet their demise by either round-up or mower. But for now, they’re keeping our spirits high in anticipation of the beautiful weather.

more pretty weeds 🙂
