Happy Anniversary!!

Today my husband and I are celebrating our 6th anniversary.  Though we have been together 12 years, I played hard-to-get because I wouldn't give him a date. LOL  We were actually engaged 2 years before I decided I couldn't put him off any longer. Ha!!

It was a beautiful day outside and we couldn't have asked for anything more perfect.

I think he had me from the first date, but I never wanted to admit that before. LOL  I mean come on... I got sick on our very first date and it wasn't pretty.  He cleaned my car out... it was miserable cold outside and he actually went to a car wash and made it perfect... in the cold and snow!!  AND... since I was living alone in an apartment... he actually slept ON THE FLOOR beside my bed that night to make sure I was ok.  Then got up and made me breakfast.  A perfect gentleman and he STILL opens doors, seats me at restaurants and always says.... "Ladies first."  Chivalry is not dead!!!  I still get flowers for no reason at all... and on occasion when I hop in my car to head somewhere I will find a card he placed there as a surprise.  I have been very blessed.

My card today will hopefully remind him of things he'd done for me (not only in a possession, but also in my heart) that have meant so very very much.

I told him very early in our relationship, when we were "just dating" that I used to play violin and how very very much I loved it and how I could no longer take lessons due to no one being close enough for my mom to take me to lessons any longer after 8 years.  So I eventually had to quit.  On my first birthday we spent together, he bought me a violin!!!! My very own!!!!  I could not believe he had remembered our talk about that much less how MUCH I know he had to spend on it!!! It's just beautiful.  And though I still haven't had time to pick up lessons again... I do play it now and then.  All from memory.

My image is from InStyle Stamps, "Violet".  Not only was the image appropriate for a card to my DH but... her name was as well.  I LOVE purple!!!  Any shade of it.  So, why not... I colored her in violets and purples.  *smile*

I used my Copic airbrush system to throw just a slight bit of grey to the image and the heart as well.  I am sure he will smile when he sees it.

So here's to another magical 6 years and longer. (HE wants to be married for 100 years!!!  I told him God wouldn't do that to ANY woman!! LOL *wink*)

Have a great day!!!  *smile*
