Happy Anniversary to Me & GiveAway Extended

Hello my blogger friends!!
I'm back and hope you haven't forgotten me :-)
I can't believe that my last post was 2 weeks ago! Time sure flies when you're having fun they say . . . but when you are NOT having fun it sure drags!! I've been sick and then got food poisoning so have been having a yukkity yukko of a time :-( And to top it off I broke my glasses and wasn't able to get out to get new ones . . . oh when it rains it pours!

Anywho ~ I am better now and have lots of catching up to do . . . email box is overflowing and Victoria Rose Cottage custom orders are backed up . . . but my tummy is no longer doing flip flops so I'm raring to go!
I am extending the deadline for my CHRISTMAS IN JULY STOCKING GIVEAWAY for a week so you now have til July 21st to enter!
And then another one will begin :-)))

Dave and I are celebrating our 31st wedding anniversary today! We met in January 1979 and were married 7 months later, July 14, 1979 . . . and they said it would never last :-) Actually, no one ever said that and I believe that my family loves Dave more than they love me HA!! He's one of those kind of people that everyone likes! Especially me!
I love the above picture of us and would give just about anything to still have those skinny arms ~ giggle . . .

My Dad passed away in March of that year so my younger brother Bobby gave me away! Bobby was only 45 when he lost a 6 month fight with cancer 10 years ago and is now my sweet Guardian Angel . . . .

My Mom and Dad were both only children so our immediate family is kinda small with no aunts or uncles or cousins. This pic shows my Grandma Blanche, Bobby, Me, Dave, my Mom, my sisters Cindy and Lori.
Thanks so much for sharing some time with me today!!

Hugs and Smiles,
