"Show and Tell" Friday
It's Friday so that means it's time for another "show and tell." My dear friend Kelli hosts "show and tell" over at her blog each week. Make sure and visit her here so you can visit all the links!

A Special Stamp & A Special Invitation!



A special invitation arrived in the mail yesterday afternoon! I wonder what it is and who that handsome couple could be? ;O)

For those of you who are new to my blog the picture on the stamp is of my son and my future daughter-in-love. The special invitation just happens to be for their wedding! They kept this wonderful stamp a secret so this Mama was quite excited when she opened up the mailbox!
The picture you see was taken at their dear friend's wedding last year. They should have known they would be walking down the aisle soon because not only did she catch the bouquet, he caught the garter, as well!! Love is in the air!
