"Pinning" A Holiday Wedding

I still don't have all the little bugs worked out of transferring photos from Pinterest into my blog post, so please excuse the little glitches here and there. I've been collecting these images for a few weeks so that I could celebrate hubbs and my Anniversary which is today. Dare I say it...? 39 years...
I know that's older than many of you out there, and gee whiz, I hate to date myself... did I just say "gee whiz"... OK, that's dating myself. What can I say, we were kids.

Even before we were married I just loved the idea of a Christmas Wedding. Magical by candlelight and in a snow covered setting. These are just a few images that captured that feeling. Oh yes, and that must have hint of red.

The simplicity of "nature" added to this cake with the red roses and twigs would be my choice today.

And a sleigh ride from the church...just perfect!

How adorable are these two?
But maybe just a tad bit chilly.

Love her fur jacket...

OK, I probably would nix the skis.
But today I'm just dreaming...

would you like to know the reality of my day?

I spent last night in the ER with a sprained ankle.

Celebrating may be by candlelight, 
but it will probably be take out.

Oh well, at least it's not broken...
I'm thankful for that.
But anyway you look at it, 
I have a wonderful husband,
even if today's best friends are a pair of crutches and a vicodin.

Not complaining... just keepin' it real.

See ya tomorrow...I think.

  1. Beautiful pictures, Debra! I'm so sorry to hear you hurt your ankle! I hope you feel better soon and stay off it! : )

  2. Happy Anniversary!
    Don't feel so bad about the years... if you put all of mine together I would be celebrating 41 years, but that doesn't count now does it... of course I was a child bride. What did you do to yourself? You and my sister, she pulled everything she could in her ankle this Christmas.
    I hope you feel better and you two are celebrating, you have much to be proud of.

  10. Debra,

  11. Happy 39th anniversary! I think it's wonderful that you've been married that long! Maybe you could have a vow renewal for your 50th wedding anniversary. We gave my parents a golden anniversary party last year. Here is the link for the ceremony:

  15. Happy Anniversary from somebody not too far behind! The images are breathtaking!

    I sprained my ankle one year carrying Christmas decorations down the basement stairs and missed one step. Just one! Wishing you a speedy recovery!

  16. Awww I am so sorry to hear about your ankle and emerg is no place to spend your anniversary ~ hey ~ maybe hubby can carry you over the threshold, just one more time ;-)

  17. Loved the pictures, loved the cake. Hope the ankle has a healing miracle! I know that it hurts as much as a broken one.


  18. Hi Debra, Happy 39th wedding anniversary. I enjoyed your post tonight and I am sorry about your ankle. I know that it hurts. Crutches aren't fun. We celebrated our 48th in October. I told my hubby I wanted to make it to 50 now so he has to keep doing what the doctor says so we can. My college roommate is celebrating her 50th the 29tj of this month. Enjoy your anniversary as much as possible. Happy New Year. Your Missouri Friend.

  19. Happy Days my friend. Please do take care of your self and be careful with the V vitamin (Vicodin). It's enough to make me take a tumble lovey. I am so happy for you and David-what an accomplishment.

  29. Happy Anniversary! What lovely photos. Thanks for sharing. Take good care of that ankle.

  30. Did you sprain that ankle do-so-do-ing...or vo-di-o-do-ing? Inquiring minds want to know.
    I'm glad it's not broken, but what a way to spend an anniversary...'specially a huge one. Guess that's one way to get him to carry you over thresholds again!
    My love and congratulations to both of you.
