44 Years

On February 4, 1972 Eddie and I eloped to Sparta, North Carolina.  This morning the love of my life presented me with the following that he handmade and I love it.

He took two single-trees and made a frame for a frame and put in his favorite picture of us together.

Close up view of the art!  I just so tickled with it and he has learned that handmade gifts are preferred for this girl!

Isn’t it beautiful and the parts came from this farm and are probably over 100 years old because he said that uncle Holl never had horses while he was growing up and helped his uncle on the farm.

For our 45th we’re planning to go back to Sparta for a visit if the weather is good. In 1972 it was snowing and cold and the roads were covered with ice.  We were young and spirited then and a little more level-headed after 44 years.  😉

      • You’re welcome. I love your blog. I really liked your post about cleaning out the smokehouse. My mom tells me stories of her grandparent’s smokehouse. I remember seeing it when I was little. Fond memories. My parents are just a few years ahead of your anniversary. They’re on 47. My grandparents were married 73 years and 50 years. They set hefty goals! 🙂 Congrats to you!
