Happy Pink Saturday~Happy Birthday Barry!

Wishing Barry Manilow a very Happy 68th Birthday!  He has blessed me with his beautiful music for more than 30 yrs.  I have so many wonderful memories!  Thank you!  
Since we are more than half way through June I thought by now I would have some lovely roses to share with you.  Unfortunately June's weather started off really really bad and my roses are not looking very good right now.  I have about 100 roses and only a few flowers.  :( Thank goodness for my hydrangea or I wouldn't have any outdoor color.
I bought these sweet miniature roses at the grocery store the other day.  I hope they keeping blooming until the rest of my roses perk up!

I bought this pretty hydrangea at the grocery store too!  

Happy Pink Saturday everyone!  Please join Beverly at How Sweet The Sound to see all the wonderful pretty pinks everyone has to share.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

To Have And To Hold

~My Parents~
After only a three month courtship they were married on May 24, 1947.  Their ceremony took place in my grandparents home in San Francisco, California.  My father passed away shortly before their 51st anniversary.

~Our Wedding~
Mike and I were married on September 11, 1971.  We didn't have a budget for anything too fancy.  My parents had recently started a new business so money was a bit tight.  Mike and I were only 20 so of course we didn't have much to contribute.  We shared our day with 75 family and friends.  A photographer friend of ours was going to do the  pictures for us but unfortunately he didn't show up!  My parent's neighbor luckily had a 35mm camera and kindly offered to take pictures for us.  He didn't have a flash for his camera so we have nothing inside the church. :(  We were blessed to have my very talented cousin Ray sing during our ceremony.  He has such a amazing voice it gives you chills.  When he sang the Lord's Prayer the tears started flowing down my face with not ONE piece of tissue in my possession!  What girl walks down the isle without tissue? My friend told me later she could hear me sniffing!  Oh boy that's a moment I won't forget!  

I remember when Mike first saw the cake topper I picked he said "If I had known there was going to be a ring on it we could have just used that one!"  lol  Very funny Mike!
