I had the honor of meeting a lady today who embodies these things. She and her husband just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. She'd known him since she was 6 years old. When she was old enough to date, she wondered why no one ever asked her out. Soon after she was married she discovered her husband had warned off all her potential suitors because he had determined she was the one. She shared this charming story with such a look of love and peace on her face. Reminded me of my mother - she would have been about this lady's age and she and my dad would have celebrated their 60th this past summer. I wish I had asked her for more; her name, another story, anything...because she had given me hope for the future. Not necessarily for me but for others out there. It doesn't all end in heartbreak and divorce. My heart was warmed and I was truly blessed by her.
On another note, my darling hubby is getting domestic on me! He saw this picture in Taste of Home magazine of some fancy schmancy turkey themed cupcakes and decided to get creative! This is the result of several hours of hard work:

|Lots of turkey cupcakes!|
And for the cuteness factor, here's a pic of my wild man with the new beanie I whipped up for him this weekend :)
|Ooh, I could just squeeze him!! Right, I already did! :) "Mooommmm"|
