And the 2 are now 1

David and I made our commitment legal at the Unitarian church in Dubuque Iowa last night. It was a quiet and very small ceremony with only one of my brothers, his wife and their 2 children. David and I are Christians, the service we had turned out to be more special than we thought it probably would have turned out to be. Our service, we assumed, would have been in a parking lot or outside. But instead we had a very meaningful service put together by the minister, his partner of 33 years being in our little audience, and the service was held in the church.
So I have sat here today and run everything through my mind. I have dropped all the announcement cards in the mailbox last night in Dubuque and the last of them made and put into their respective envelopes this afternoon and made ready to be handed out to the recipients in the next few days. I am looking forward at getting my hands back on the needles and get something made. Perhaps I should fire up a sewing machine and whip something together. Hmm…I think I will think about it tomorrow.

Congradulations! It sounds spectacular. You have to post some wedding pictures!

beenieg80's picture Seeing how much I hate seeing myself in pictures there really weren't many taken, and with the service being so small... But there are some, When the husband gets them downloaded from the camera I'll concider posting at least 1.

Many happy days and stitches to you both!

He wanted to go to the middle of the state, Fort Dodge/Webster City area. I said no, it will be my first marriage and his third and Dubuque is such a pretty city. And it is close to home, I didn't have to take any time off work... =D
