Hello everybody! I wanted to share a special event that just occurred in my life. This past Saturday, August 18th, I celebrated eleven years happily married to my high school sweetheart, (we have a total of 19 years together from the moment he asked me to be his girlfriend). We also renewed our vows and threw our celebration at the same place where we got married eleven years ago on the same date, the Astoria World Manor in Astoria, NY. It was pretty exciting this time around because our children were able to see us get “married” again. Everyone, including us, had a blast. The food was fantastic (we got a personalized watermelon display) and the employees there were very helpful.
I had a lot of fun putting together my centerpieces. I made my own flower using tissue paper and I loved using the colors turquoise (11th year wedding anniversary color) and gold (representing my dress) together. I included and made a marshmallow treat (inspired by a Pinterest pic)for my favor bags. I also made a card box and decorated my cake topper. I will be sharing my crafty ideas on those items in a later post. I didn’t want to feel overwhelmed so I stuck to a mantra of, “KEEP IT SIMPLE!” It worked, and in the end everyone complimented me on what I did and I was very happy. Many of my friends and family members know that I’m crafty so they instantly knew my touches here and there. Overall, there were a couple of hiccups, but that’s expected because nothing can ever be perfect. The imperfections are life lessons so you know what you can correct in the future, if you chose to do so. Until next time…thanks for following.
Oh, did I mention our names? No? Oh, I’m very sorry. We are Angelica and Angel, and no I’m not making that up.
I like to think we were meant to be!
