23 years ago today, Daniel and I got married in Germany in the company of our family and close friends! Many even came from the US to spend this special day with us.
As we came out of the little church in Angelmodde Dorf, the village kids had put up barriers and we had to buy our safe passage with candy and change. It was a total surprise for us!
I love this photo of Daniel and I with my grandma, who has since passed away.
Our wedding day was the hottest day since 1947 and if you look closely at the photo you can tell how very warm I was. We didn't let it dampen our sprits though in the least...
And here we are 23 years later. In some ways we have changed a good bit - our hair is more silver, we are both sporting a good number of laugh lines in our faces and I am not as super skinny as I was back then.
But in all the essential ways we didn't only stay the same, but I'd say that we are aging quite well. And our love only grows with every year that passes! We are very lucky indeed!
Sending you much love and joy on this very special day!!
The other day I baked my very first blueberry pie. I've made many pies before, but never with fresh blueberries. I wasn't sure how it would turn out and a little nervous because I was making it for a dinner party, but it was both beautiful and delicious!
I used the recipe I found here. The Pate Brise she uses for the crust is the pie crust recipe I always use. It's foolproof! :)
We have a big pomegranate bush in our garden. It was a stick when we planted it five years ago and is now huge!
Last year it bloomed like crazy, but we got no fruit. This year, we probably have about 20 pomegranates ripening. Most will probably be ripe while we are in Europe and our friends will get to eat them.
