I thought it would be fun to go out tonight and do something sort of special...just a way to kind of remember that evening so many years ago. But life and work adds demands and so we can reminisce in other ways.
I still love to be with him and do things together. It doesn't really matter what or where it is.

So glad to see you back on here! I have missed your stories and pictures so much! They bring me so much joy! I met you in your store last year?"

My goodness! Where on earth have you gone. I, myself am struggling with blogging. Sometimes life just seems to overtake you and you MUST give it your full attention...
But yes that is absolutely right...sometimes just life takes our full attention! I like how she said that!
So if you are struggling with seasonal allergies or terminal illness or fractured relationships or job loss or any of the other things that life can bring your way, I just wanted to come by and leave you with a scripture that has encouraged our family this summer.
The New Testament Second Corinthians Chapter 4 Verses 7 through 10
We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are pressed on every side by troubles but we are not crushed. We are perplexed but not driven to despair. We are hunted down but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies.
I hope this is encouraging to you also for whatever you may be going through and you've had a restful Sunday.

But she wanted slightly capped sleeves on her topless, oops I mean strapless dress, so now she has them, and she was thrilled.
Thanks for following along as I've babbled on about such things.
Have a wonderful day.

One of my 4 sweet sisters came 600 miles to help me with sewing for 2 weeks. She fully realizes at this point that I truly couldn't have done this without her.
It's prom and wedding season, so the fun continues here at "A Romantic Porch"!
I promise I will be back...next time I come up for air!
I miss all of y'all so much.

Though the weather outside defies the date of the calendar, still time moves along. I took this photo in January and though our mounds of snow are beginning to melt and grass peek through here and there, still it looks VERY winter!
When I was a child I remember Mother and Daddy anxiously awaiting March 1st. They had a saying that goes something like this: "If March weather comes in like a lion (furiously stormy) then it will go out like a lamb (calm and peaceful). You will know Spring has truly arrived.
However if March weather comes in like a lamb, it will go out like a lion."
And so they would usually hope for a stormy March first. If the storms came at the end of the month then they knew we would have a stormy Spring.
Has anyone else heard that?
They grew up in Oklahoma and lived half of their lives there...don't know if that had anything to do with it or not!
Anyway, I'm super excited that it is March 1st.
I'm just happy to be living today!
"Liony" or "lamby"?

so I do it the same way every time.
Do not vary from the directions.
I'm sorry for the blurry pictures. I hope they helped a tiny bit.
As soon as I can, I will update the photos.
