40th Anniversary...

Good morning, friends!
Today, my DH and I are celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary.  This week has been full of family and friends arrving from out of town, and out of state, to share in the celebration with us.
Our two grown children have teamed up and are having a party for us at a local vinyard this afternoon, and we are looking forward to seeing even more friends and family!
I'll try to have a photo to share in the next post.

I thought I'd share a card with you that was published in CardMaker's Quick & Easy Cards Magazine. If you haven't seen this one yet, you are missing out!  Great photos, and so much inspiration!

Have a wonderful day, and thank you for being patient with me the past week or so, as my time has been devoted to visiting with family!  Our DD and her DH will be moving to Germany at the end of this month, and will be gone for three years, so we have been spending as much as we can with them.

Have a wonderful day!

Patti J.
