A June Bride

On June 11th, at a 6:00 p.m. candlelight ceremony, I married my high school sweetheart...

and became an Air Force wife.

 Time marched on...

and our three wonderful children grew up [as we grew older!]...

got married, and gave us beautiful grandchildren. 

God has blessed us immeasurably as the circle of life continues!

A British Ellgreave Staffordshire teapot [pictured below] has been with us from day one!  It was a bridal shower gift, and after all these years I still remember the lady who gave it to us.   I wasn't a tea drinker back then, but our teapot waited patiently!

We toasted our many years together at an anniversary dinner - he with his iced tea and me with my hot tea!

Happy Anniversary, Jerry! 

Thanks for ALL the tea rooms you've visited with me and cups of tea you've drank since I became smitten with "all things tea" in 1997!   Love you!


  1. Happy Anniversary and God Bless.

  2. Happy anniversary! And may God bless you with many more happy years. I love your teapot. How special you have had it this long! I would have had trouble passing up the have a strong will...and lots of commonsense! LOL! Thanks for sharing your special day!

  3. Happy Anniversary, and I'm raising my teacup to many more wonderful memories!
