Wonderful Celebration

My husband and I celebrated our 37th. year wedding anniversary. He took me to Pa. for the weekend, we stayed in Lancaster and went to some shops in that area. We watched a Christmas play and ate
wonderful Pa. Dutch cooking.
 My husband also took me to Alechia's House of Country in Williamsport, Pa.
It was such a refreshing time for both of us.
I know my husband doesn't enjoy prim crafts like I do, but he took me to these places,
so I could enjoy myself.
 It has been so hard on me since my mom's passing three weeks ago, I still cry everyday, but
I actually was able to enjoy myself and even laugh a little.
I will share some photo's of our trip, sorry I didn't get any pictures of the amish. The weekend
just went too fast.

  4. So sorry about your mom passing! Big hugs to you. My mom has been gone 11 years and I still miss her like crazy. I'm glad you were able to get out and celebrate your 37th anniversary.

  5. Hi there, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY !! Sorry I didn't comment til now. For some reason you did show up on my list of blog posts. I hope you and a great Thanksgiving.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
