Who's That?

Who's that cute little blonde girl walking across the campus with an armload of books? She looks like a serious student -- far too serious for a goofball like me!

Maybe that's why I was afraid to ask her out. Until a friend told me she might -- she juST MIGHT -- say yes!

I asked.

She affirmed.

We went.

Whirlwind-like!

Until...

"I DO!"

37 years ago today.

Happy Anniversary, Love of my life!!!

Congrats! I'm glad you asked her, because otherwise there wouldn't have been a "me" to comment on your blog.

I too remember that summer, 37 years ago.Cathy was a summer missionary in Oregon. She picked out a pattern and fabric for a wedding dress and asked if I would plan the wedding and make the dress. I made the dress, going away dress,dress for her shower,peignoir set and other lingerie and planned the wedding. The clothes fit perfect and I felt blessed she trusted me to plan the most important day of her life. We were pleased with her choice of a husband and still are. We love you, Joyce and Bob

You earned that trust, Joyce. You made one of the most beautiful wedding dresses ever and it fit her perfectly. I am forever grateful for the wedding, but more grateful for the daughter you raised!
