st. patrick's day marks three beauty full events in my life...
march 17, 1990 - the day john and i officially got engaged... THE RING!!!
march 17, 1992 - the day katherine elizabeth was conceived... THE ROMANCE!!!
march 17, 2000 - the day john and i renewed our wedding vows... 10 YEARS!!!
in 1990, john being john (the romantic devil he is, lol!!!), said, "come on, let's go for a ride." so, out we went, jumped in his truck, and drove away from his house. when we got about three houses away from his, he tossed a small box over to me
as he said, "here, i hope you like it:)"
i unwrapped the box to find...
an engagement ring!!!
me loving john being john the romantic devil he is (at least in his own *special* way), loved the ring and loved, loved, loved him even more!!!
in 1992, john and i celebrated st. patrick's day in more ways than one;)
oh, the romance!!!
for a long time, i was pretty sure that katherine was conceived that night. anyway, a few years later i happened onto a website that calculated due dates/conception dates... so, i entered her birth date and clicked "enter"...
yep, i was right; she was, indeed, a full-term st. patty's baby:b
john and i celebrated our 10 year anniversary in 2000. i wanted us to renew our wedding vows; and, i wanted our preacher at the time to perform the ceremony. however, there was one problem. ric, our preacher, wasn't going to be in town that day... as he was going to be at the kentucky state boys' basketball tournament.
believe it or not, john told me that would be no problem... we'd just drive to lexington, and ric could perform the ceremony there between basketball games:D
so, that's exactly what we did!!!
HAPPY 10th ANNIVERSARY TO US!!!
there just happened to be a big methodist church a block down and across the street from rupp arena (where the games were being held). we renewed our vows that friday afternoon and spent a very romantic weekend at a quaint little inn in lexington.
is saint patrick's day a special day for you and yours???
i hope this one will be:
HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY, ALL!!!
love and GOD's blessings,
