My 16th Anniversary Friday, July 1st

I started getting mopey about this a couple of days ago.  I told my S-I-L that I was trying to be understanding with my healing hubby, but I knew the anniversary wouldn't really be much.  She told me to go get a cake, some flowers and maybe watch our wedding video.  Good for her!  I needed that.

Also to celebrate the good things about my marriage, I will be posting some of the great things about Victor up until Friday. 
Victor working on his latest project.

V putting together my daughter's futon-couch.  Notice the gold vanity on the right that he spray-painted and inserted fabric that matches the rug where the mirror (that broke) should be to make a bulletin board.
Oh yes, he designed and built this cool house we have lived in for 12 years.


  1. Happy 16th Anniversary to you and Victor!

    I was just thinking about those cute old apartments on Academy where we lived next door to each other. I remember how 16 years ago you came over and introduced yourself and how I liked you a lot - I thought you were one of the friendliest people I had every met! I'm thankful for you and glad to be your friend.

    I continue to pray for Victor, you, Mia and Mark.

    Love to you!

  2. Hi Karen,
    Happy Anniversary!
    And....happy blogging.
    Melanie told me you had jumped into the Blog World and I'd like to say WELCOME!
    Yes, very quickly, I'll tell you I have 3 blogs...each one very different from the other.
    Tropical Texana is about life (and wildlife) in our garden. It's a mix of information and personal reflections.
    The Other Houston is about bungalow houses and gardens in the area. It's just informational.
    Houston in Black & White involves my lifelong dream of being a serious photographer. As you might guess, it's a great risk to put your photos out there for the world to critique, but it's also inspirational to see others encourage me on this journey.
    Have fun with this blog! For me, it's sometimes the only thing I can actually CONTROL in my life.
    That alone is reason enough to keep it going.
    As always, we are praying for V & your family!
    David/ :-)

  3. Thanks, Thirza! You have been one of my best neighbors ever!
    David, I didn't know you had this other secret life! Tee hee hee! I'll have to follow your bungalow journal too. I wish you'd start another blog of just your funny, quirky thoughts on life. I hear you about being "out there." But I admire you for doing it!
