My Blog Format

Ok, so I do not like my blog format and really need to take some time to play around with it.  It is just a straight line down with the pictures the same way.  How ordinary and boring! Can I fool around with it today?  Is there time in my schedule?  One would think that not working would be conducive to getting more done in your day because you have more time to work with BUT it is incredible what little tasks get in the way or with how sidetracked I get during the day...For example, right now I have at least 5 things I need/would like to be doing: dishes (obviously a need, not a like), reading Wait Till Next Year by Doris Kearns Goodwin (definite like), reading FB posts, getting a box into the mail to my grandchildren (2 have birthdays next week), making breakfast, stopping at the bike shop to see if they have any rides coming up, etc. 

 I will come back to this today for sure, just not sure when.  I have to be in Fairhope at 1 to play bridge until 4 and then home to work out with Bruce and grill the chicken I marinaded. Get the picture?  Every day is like this!

Anniversary- A Look Back 21 Years Ago

21 years. Doesn't seem possible.  I could not resist getting out the wedding pictures and once I had started looking through them knew I would have to share them on FB.  Then, naturally, a post on the blog seemed appropriate.

We had decided on the wedding date very quickly in order for it to coincide with Bruce's brother, Greg, being home on leave from the Navy in Hawaii.  That meant a winter wedding.  We cut costs and decided on a small wedding and larger reception.  The wedding took place in our apartment in Wiscasset and we had a good friend's mother officiate.  Another friend made the wedding cake, we decorated the hall in West Gardiner, and made all the food and the music CD (I suppose they were tapes back then-lol).

The wedding went well.  My grandparents were in attendance.

 My brother's girlfriend, Lori Holyoke, who is now my sister-in-law was also there.

 I remember it snowing and there was snow on the ground as well.  We exchanged our own vows and Bruce was so sweet.

We had a wonderful start to our life together.

The reception was terrific. Our daughter, Kristin, who was three had a fun time too.

We stayed in Waterville our first night together.  Then we went to Sugarloaf for the following night.  Unfortunately, it was New Year's Eve and there was a slight issue with dinner reservations, but we were able to get into the restaurant at 9:00pm.  We watched lots of football the next day and did not ski.

We have not been back to stay there although I would like to sometime.  Also, having an anniversary the day before New Year's Eve has posed problems with expensive week-ends away to try and celebrate.  I remember getting away for the week-end one time!  We went to Kennebunkport and had a fabulous time there.

Here are a few more pictures:
