A Day for Love. Our Wedding Reception, Valentine's Day 1998

A Valentine wish for all my bloggy friends...
May you share this day with the one's you love.
My wonderful hubby surprised me with these beautiful roses!

They haven't opened yet but I can see they will be stunning!

A dozen roses~
I feel so blessed to have such a thoughtful and caring husband.

Dan and I were married at the Little Brown Church in the Vale in August of 1997.
We had our honeymoon in December of that year and our wedding reception was held on Valentine's Day 1998.
Above Dan and I and my little sister Susie and Dan's brother Mark.

My Mom and my daughter Katie, age 7.
Now she's a Mommy and all grown up!

And finally a romantic wedding dance. 
Valentine's Day, a special day for love.
Happy Valentine's !
I am joining Marty @ A stroll thru life for Tabletop Tuesday.
