Thursday’s Doors: Savannah at Christmas

Every week, Norm invites us to post pictures of doors which have somehow got caught in our camera lenses. Savannah at Christmas time is so pretty.


This house looked really elegant, without being glitzy. I want my new front door painted bright red, just like this.


Someone had delivered a gift to this house, but obviously found no-one at home.


The Baptist church doors looked very festive too.


I won’t be around much today, as hubby and I are going out gallivanting on our 49th wedding anniversary. It’s a gorgeous day here in Florida and we intend to make the most of our special day. So much loving up to now, and much more to come in the future.


Have a wonderful Thursday everyone.




Happy Anniversary to us.

Today my darling hubby and I celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary. I wonder how many of you are old enough to remember these songs that we danced to: ”Strangers in the night” by Frank Sinatra, “These boots were made for walking” by Nancy Sinatra,  ”Reach out, I’ll be there”, by The Four Tops  and “God only knows” and “Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys?


This may sound like a huge number of years to be with the same person, but the time has just flown by. When we two love-struck youngsters said, “I do,” we could never have envisaged what a wonderful and long relationship lay before us. Hubby was newly graduated, and we had very little in the way of material things, but what we did have, was our love for one another, and  a dream of a “happily ever after” future together. Now, two wonderful children and five precious grandchildren later, we are still  celebrating. At times it’s been an exciting roller coaster ride, but then there have been the calm, smooth sailing periods when we’ve just coasted along without too much effort at all. Through all these years, I’ve been so fortunate to have someone who loves me unconditionally and without reserve; someone I can totally depend on to always be there for me through thick and thin. I just couldn’t imagine life without my wonderful man. We’re true soul mates, and although we’re so different in many ways, we get along so well. We’ve laughed together, cried together, and most importantly of all, we’ve stayed together.

“A kiss is just a kiss till you find the one you love.

 A hug is just a hug, till you find the one you’re always thinking of.

 A dream is just a dream till it magically comes true 

 Love was just a word till I heard it from you.”   ~ Anon.
