Well HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to you 2. I love the list you made. I am so happy for the 2 of you to still be so happy and in love.

I really enjoy visiting your blog and spending time there seeing things you share and reading what you write.

I do have some fabric that should work for the pillow cases. Maybe now I can find a day that I can come over and maybe you can help me get started on them.
