Just Dreamin'

We'll be having another anniversary in a few days. I called this dress "my going away dress". I changed into it after our wedding. The dress and hat were so much fun to make.
Last night I dreamed that we were getting married again. I wonder why? Yes, I mean I wonder why I dreamed that...last night?
The neat thing, I was just as excited last night as I was then. Yep! I'd marry him again, all over again, in a heart beat.
But I didn't have to dream about it to realize it.
Love, Rachel

Such a sweet post. Beautiful dress and you made it - wow I'm impressed. Did you wear those shoes too? It is a good feeling to be so content with the person you invested your life into. So glad you and hubby are happy.

Dear Rachel,
Beautiful dress, you should post the picture of you and "him", the picture with you in the dress and hat.
Love you, Have a wonderful day.

Ha! You asked for that 'un! Your fans are demanding a picture of Mr & Mrs R.P.!

And didja wear all those purty blingy beads with the dress? What about the shoes? Did they go with it, too? (Actually, I know you didn't wear the beads... but I can't remember about the shoes! LOL!)

You're just cute. Both of you!

What a gorgeous dress Rachel. You sew beautifully. By chance do you have the photo from your wedding when you went away in it? I'd love to see that. Hugs, Kathi
