ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " F "



Here we are at the letter F in our trip around the alphabet.

I am FINALLY back to blogging after taking a week off.

This post is about FAMILY, FRIENDS and FOOD.

Saturday Dave and I renewed our wedding vows after
FORTY seven and a half years.
The years seem to FLY by.
Life is on the FAST track FOR us.
I know that number seems strange but the timing was right.
We had a FABULOUS time.
The party was held in our backyard with perfect weather.
Our younger son and FAMILY came FROM Oregon.
Our other son and his FAMILY live near us.
Both FAMILIES helped to make a FIRST rate party FOR us.
We had FELLOWSHIP around BBQ and the decor was lovely.
Thirty FOUR people helped us celebrate, some FROM FARaway.
It wasn't FANCY and the FOLKS seemed to have FUN.
Our vows weren't FLOWERY either,
but said how Dave and I FEEL about each other.
They were and are our FOREVER Vows.




Our daughters in law FASHIONED beautiful bouquets FROM
FRESH
daiseys FOR each dining table.
I think they did a FINE job.
When the (FOTOS) are FINISHED I will FIND time to
share more of our special day with all of you.

What a fabulous post! Congrat's to both of you. It makes me smile that you picked 47 1/2 years for the time to renew your vows. The implication is that EVERY year... or even every day... is special for your loving relationship.
