43 Years Ago...

... TODAY
A lot can happen in 43 years:
6 different homes in
2 different States.
Several overseas trips
and many within Australia.
Lots of people met and
Friends made.
BUT
Best of all is the treasured family
that has resulted.
Blessed with four wonderful children of whom we are so very proud,
their partners whom we love dearly,
and six gorgeous grandchildren
who are the delight of our lives.


What more could we ask for
except good health and
many more very happy years together.

Congratulations to you ALL!!! It's lovely to see you back, and with such wonderful news---a milestone and a sweet story, all at once.

Hope you're having a wonderful Spring, and I think of that glorious garden often, in the grey damp freezy outlook onto my own.

Happy Holidays, and MANY HAPPY RETURNS!!

Oh dear, oh dear...I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date! I wasn't paying attention at all, was I?
Happy, happy 43rd anniversary dear Frances and Richard. I hope it was a wonderful day for you both.
You certainly have a beautiful family...and lucky you....2 very cute new little additions to the family since that lovely first photo was taken.
You have much to be delighted about!
We wish you many more happy years enjoying your glorious garden, family, travel and the simple beauties of life.
Much love,
K&R

A belated 'happy anniversary wish' from us too. I can hardly believe that family photo was taken over almost a year to the day - and yet there are still 2 to now add to it!!

Just discovered your blog Alice. Nice one - and congrats. I too live in the ACT but wish I had a garden like yours. I suppose I could if I didn't read so much ... but you have inspired me...
