Happy New Year Anniversary!


Fourteen years ago today (almost to the minute) Sylmon and I were exchanging vows at Liberty Christian Fellowship, the church we met in (singles' group!). Our reception was in the beautiful lobby of a women's dorm at William Jewell College, 10 minutes' drive from the church. It was a cold, dry winter, but it snowed that one afternoon for our wedding and was the only snowfall all winter. During our wedding photo session, I found a shiny new 1994 penny on the front porch of the dorm and slipped it into my shoe. I wore my mother's pearls and my grandmother's gold wrist watch. We decorated the reception with discounted Christmas decor (lots of greenery, including a cut up Christmas tree; twinkle lights and gold wrapped candies). I highly recommend a winter wedding, especially just past Christmas!
Happy New Year to you and Happy Anniversary to us!

Happy anniversary dear friend! And happy new years too. You look beautiful in your photo.
I hope all the best for you in the coming new year. And thank you for the cards you sent John in the hospital and to me. You will never know how much your kindness meant to us.
Love Nita
