Our Love is Like a Rock, Cause That's Just How We Roll

Today is the 28th wedding anniversary for Cute Hubby and I. Here is a collection of sketches from our early relationship:

Ooooooo that kiss! We are still just as much in love.

The morning of our wedding, our neighbor, an old lady named Mrs. Jones, woke me up by waving a card in front of my face and exclaiming "Wake up! Don't you know what day this is?". I have no idea how she got into the house. Later that day at the reception, our friend Tim sang to her "Me and Mrs. Jones", hahaha.

I've included a small selection of sketches of Cute Hubby, he is my favorite muse. How about those feet? Ah, young love. sigh.

There is the garden gate across from our apartment, and there is a sketch of flowers from our table.

I thought it might be fun to include a couple of sketches from my first pregnancy as well. In case you hadn't figured it out, the "belly" sketches are of me feeling the baby move.

I hope you enjoyed this little pictorial stroll down memory lane. I'm glad I could share it with you. xo

Firstly, happy anniversary to you both and of course, many more to come. Secondly, those were great sketches. Loved the first set most. Hand on the belly nearly reduced me to tears (ok, not really but it was still cool nonetheless)

Again Hieperdepiep Hoeraaaa - to the both of you (I couldn't open this post the past week so I'm behind and reading this after the b-day post) LOL

Did you draw that really in 1982 ? And kept it all these years for us ?? ;-))
I actually love that song Me and Mrs Jones - always thought of it as very romantic ...:-)

Aw! Such lovely sketches! You're a woman of many talents Diane :)

I quite envy yours and Cute Hubby's wonderful love affair ... I'd love to find that with someone one day.

Oh my, oh my...happy anniversary!

I've just noticed (just saw the picture of 'Walking visions of beauty' again) that your oldest daughter looks like you and the younger one looks like your husband. Do you agree? :)
