Today is my younger son’s first wedding anniversary. Mike and Michelle live in Colorado and were married in a meadow near a lovely lodge in the mountains one year ago today. I called them tonight to say “Happy Anniversary.” Both seemed to be having a fun time with friends. But I share with you something that my daughter-in-law said to me tonight … “We have just spent the most magical year of our lives.” Now you must understand that my son was in a nasty auto accident two years ago, needs back surgery soon, and I believe it must have been a very difficult year. And yet Michelle could still say they had a magical year. Mike is so lucky, and as parents we are so lucky to have her in the family.
Here are photos of the blocks I have completed so far on their “wedding quilt.” Yes, I am slow. It should have been done at least for this anniversary! Alas, it was not.
