When we moved to Portugal, we only brought our luggage. Each of us could carry 2 pieces on the plane. I packed, and re-packed for two weeks. But any way I put it in, it always weighed more than 50 pounds. So many things were left behind.
Somehow, only one of my wedding pictures made it here.
I can read your mind.
- Yes, I was a bleached blond.
- Yes, we were married in a night club. (I’ve never been one to do things like they are “supposed” to be done. What fun is that?!)
- And Yes, I was much thinner then…but you just wait! (I’ll be wearing this dress again in no time!)
I had fun with the scanner. I’ve not ever scanned a picture before…I know..I’m lame. I may have to find some other old pictures to scan.
Last night Michael and I had some “Mommy/Daddy Time”. I’ll call it our Valentines date. Ms. Dawne stayed with the kids and we went to IKEA to do some shopping for the Valentines Day Dinner we are having this Saturday. We’ve invited all the folks from the church to come to our house for an Italian dinner. Michael and I will do all the cooking, serving and cleaning. Ms. Dawne has volunteered to babysit all the kids at her house. We just want to do something nice for the folks here in the church that have been so kind and welcoming to our family. And bless their hearts, they listen to me try to speak Portuguese. They deserve so much more than just a dinner!
