And Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband. 17 years. Wow. Who would have thought? ;)
Here's my last, and favorite heart picture that I found:
Found it HERE
Here's another one of my very favorite pictures ever:
Thanks to DeAnn for taking this shot of us!
And here's one more of my favorite pictures.
This is the church we got married in. It's in Genoa, NV.
It has a very historic background.
This is from the Genoa website:
The Genoa Community Church is a non-denominational church, built on its present site after the disastrous 1910 Genoa fire burned most of the business section. Building materials were donated and community volunteer labor built the church. The Genoa Town Advisory Board (town of Genoa) holds the church property deed and governs the use of the church as well as the 1886 Town Hall, and the town office.
In 1979-1980 the bell tower, porch, new roof, new doors and a natural gas heating system was installed. The large wooden cross overlooking the antique alter and pews gives a spiritual feeling. In 1991-1992 the church was expanded with dressing rooms, restrooms and a wheelchair ramp. Sunday church services, weddings, baptismals, funeral services, and meetings are still held in the church today.
The Genoa Community Church is a testament to faith and volunteerism, thanks to the community spirit of local residents and that meaningful word, "tradition."
This is a few months after we were married, at our wedding reception. Here's something a lot of people don't know. We eloped. It was just us and our parents at our wedding in the little church in NV. A few months later we had a big party back home and all of our friends and family to celebrated with us. If I had to go back and do it again I would do it the same way. We got to have an intimate, private wedding ceremony AND a big party. The best of both worlds.
(I tried to find a picture of us on our actual wedding day and I couldn't find one. My wedding scrapbook is packed away in storage)
Hope you have a wonderful Heart Day!
Happy Anniversary Joe!
Here's one last picture, just for you.
In our hearts we'll always be the two young people in this photo.
