|My Betty Crocker Bridal Cookbook. Pretty sure|
it used to be a bright orange.
I've been attending more than a few bridal showers in the last year or so, probably because we taught a college age ministry school and now they are all getting matched up and entering into wedded bliss. (Yes, it's still going to happen for those of you who are single.)
As I watch the brides-to-be open their shiny new kitchen ware, bath towels and home supplies, I sometimes make a whispering comment that there ought to be a '30 Years Married Shower'. Is that not a wonderful idea? Let's make this a thing, OK?
|My nut cracker.|
I mean there should be a reward for staying married that long and still be using the towels and dishes we got for wedding gifts. My 'rag bin' is overflowing with the remnants of the beautiful bath towels I received years ago when we first married.
|When you keep scissors near by while folding towels,|
it means the towels are getting close to joining the Rag Bin.
|The first time I saw my own dishes in an antique store|
it made me feel so old! These Pyrex and Corning Ware dishes
are in high demand on eBay. I'm vintage!
We have been married for 34 years and all my baking dishes were gifted to me at my wedding shower and as wedding presents. I think that a '30 Years Married' shower would be perfect for us who've been together through the hard stuff and the good stuff. Sickness and health, multiple moves to new homes and sometimes into older and smaller homes.
|NO, I never used this in my laundry room, I'm not THAT vintage.|
I am not crazy about the dishes that I've lived with all these years. We only registered for our "special" dishes and silver in those days. We didn't register for the normal everyday household items, at least I don't remember doing that.
But I am still crazy about the groom I chose 34 years ago. He's a keeper, even though he's a little chipped around the edges. Honey, you are my JOY Find today. I love you Hubs.
