Today is my 4th wedding anniversary.
This morning I woke up to an amazing breakfast including pancakes, ham, and eggs (not bad for a Thursday).
My husband is a romantic at heart, and still calls me "sweetie bride" around the house. These years have flown by at a pace that I would not have imagined back in my single days. I suppose that's what happens when you're having fun. Thank you Sweetpea for making this time so incredible.
The above quilt was a wedding gift from my small quilt group. They worked on it for a year before they gave it to me.
They entered it into a quilt show, and the title of it was called "Marisa, this is your wedding gift."
I went to the quilt show with them and was standing looking at this awesome little quilt wondering where I could get the pattern for it. One of my friends said, "Gee, I wonder what the title of this quilt is?"
When I read it, and understood it was made in honor of our wedding, I was crying, and very moved that these amazing quilt artists put so much effort and love into one of my alltime favorite gifts. It hangs above our fireplace now.
I also started to make a wedding quilt with signatures...(based on the Sarah Johnson quilt) but I'll save that story for another post.
