36 Years

Today is our 36th anniversary. I always make something to mark the day and this year I decided to include little pieces of Moville.

The driftwood, shell, and lopsided heart rock were all things we picked up on the beaches here. The yarn is wool from the charity shop in Killybegs and the motif is one I adapted from a chart that I got years ago from somewhere. Before we left Maine I took pics of charts and swatch pictures from stitch dictionaries that were either from the library or that I knew I would not bring. Tough decisions had to be made because we had no weight available in those suitcases! But the files weigh nothing, so at least I still have these things to refer to when I want them!

It has sure been an interesting 36-year journey as we have made our way across one country, up to the north, back down again, across the same country the other way, across an ocean, and then making our way up the left side of this island. We have lived in and learned about many places and met so many wonderful people along the way! I am grateful to have spent the last three and a half decades with someone who really is my other half and I am glad that we have more to look forward to and experience together.

I love you, Bill :-) Thanks for everything these 36 years and for the years still to come!

Who are those people?!
