Good Morning Everyone!
Today is a very special day indeed! Two years ago, on this very day, at this very time, I must have been sitting at my desk at RB Management, poring over magazine pictures and talking with my friends at the office…Trying to decide what I was going to wear for a VERY special date I had that evening. A first date. A first date with the man who turned out to be my husband.
One year ago on this day, I had received a (what appeared at the time to be) very odd package delivered to me at the office…It contained a CD of special songs…a sweet letter…and another envelope I wasn’t allowed to open yet. I left work early for a doctor’s appointment, and afterwards watched a DVD of our past year together with Craig and then went to get ready for our Anniversary Date, only to be met with beautiful flowers and an AMAZING proposal.
Two years ago today my life changed forever, and one year ago today, it changed even MORE and for the absolute best! Happy two year anniversary of our first date, and one year anniversary of the day you asked me to be your wife, Craig! I love you!
It’s the first of these years we have not been able to be together, but such is the life of a pilot’s wife! I am, however, able to enjoy this Holy Thursday with the adorable Miss Daisy, and her sister Lucy – both babies are napping and so I finally had a chance to write this blog!
In other recent news, the draperies are (halfway) completed! 1: We misplaced, and JUST found the return for the other window, and 2: Craig has to be here to thread the bobbin on my sewing machine… SO (or SEW ha ha ha), I did the first panel with stitchwitchery to try and surprise my hubby a few weeks ago with completed draperies… BUT it took almost 4 hours to finish one panel, and my sewing machine just would not allow me to thread it…When C got home, he threaded the bobbin and the second panel was completed while he washed the car with Lucy (fun for him! lol), but then we couldn’t find the return for the 2nd window in our bedroom…So, one window – two panels – are complete!
I’ll try another picture where you can better see the entire window treament soon. I’m not sure why, but the flash on my camera made everything look blue…Oh, well, at least my side of the room is darkened – which means Lucy doesn’t wake up with the roosters, as she did BEFORE the drapes…Whew! 🙂 I really love the wa the window turned out! Craig’s cornice board, made with shims and leftover finish from the refurbishment of our dresser, plus these draperies, against the deep blue accent wall, really do a lot for our bedroom!
We have ANOTHER new addition in our home, as well: “Alfred”.
The cow rug! :-)If you are in the design world, this rug is a Safavieh! Pricewise, we STOLE it! If you know my husband at all, you know two things: First, he is not likely to pay a lot of money for a rug…Especially one that is solely for decoration. But also, he has a thang for cows and all things farm. “Alfred” (along with the cow print I gave him for Christmas) really makes a statement in our den! Both we AND our girls just love it!
If you haven’t been over in awhile…ahem….please come and visit SOON! You must see all the changes that have turned this once-bachelor pad into our little family’s home!
Little Lucifer Lucy has been growing like a WEED – or maybe faster!
That was the day we brought her home. This is the other day:
She has discovered a new walking trail, which is DEFINITELY her favorite! The only downside is the 20 minute drive to reach it, along with the fact it is FIVE MILES LONG. You certainly have to carve out a large portion of your day to be able to indulge her!
There are plenty of opportunities for her to get into trouble, considering this is a true nature trail. Yesterday she dove right into a creek that runs alongside the trail, and desperately attempted to catch a fish – which was actually just a floating leaf, but I didn’t have the heart to tell her. Three hours and a 20 minute car ride home later:
This was MY reward! The 5 mile walk is MORE than worth it! 🙂
Craig and I celebrated 6 months of marriage a few weeks ago:
And these truly have been the best six months of my life. Hands Down. Without Question! And so, on that note, let me say that we were overjoyed to celebrate the marriage of two more of our dear friends this past weekend: Ashley and JW (or John, or P. Diddy???? Not sure WHAT to call him after the speeches we heard at the rehearsal dinner…) 🙂 It is wonderful to be able to welcome another set of our friends into the bliss and journey that is marriage! Congratulations Ash & J! We wish you all the happiness!!
Well, I must go! Lucy needs a walk, I need to finish my Bible Study, and then I have to get ready for our parish’s Holy Thursday service! Being in the choir has been SUCH a blessing!
We wish you all the best, and send you all of our love.
Pier & Craig

Miss you both! Wish you were coming home for Easter…or Tiffany’s wedding next week… 😦 It would also be nice to head your direction because I need to meeting your growing puppy! And witness my brother in a choir 😉
Aww! I wish we were too! Maybe by some miracle Craig’s ridiculous trip will get picked up and we can come to the wedding! Say a few prayers on our behalf!! 😊Otherwise you know there is always a spot for you here in Georgia! Just let us know when you’d like to head South! We miss you and yes, you must see Lucy, Aunt Jenna, and also see (and HEAR) your brother singing! It’s just wonderful!

Love seeing the changes to your home, the cow rug is pretty unique – what does Lucy and Daisy think of it? And I too am looking forward to seeing you both sing in the choir.
Happy anniversary ……… for meeting, for being engaged and 6 months of marriage!
Love, Mom and Dad too 🙂
Lucy and Daisy think Alfred is a new pet! 🙂 Much to our chagrin, Lucy loves chewing her bones on the cow rug…So, the vacuum cleaner pretty much has to be on hand at all times!!! 🙂 I think Daisy would love snuggling on the rug, other than the fact LUCY is always in her way!
We do hope y’all will come to visit soon! Wish you could be with us for Easter! Tonight at the Vigil Mass, I am doing the Litany of the Saints with another girl, Rose! One of my favorite songs, by far, and Craig may be the only male choir member this evening, so it would be a real treat for y’all! 🙂
