Excellent post full of wisdom and the joy and happiness that you have found!

You are very talented. That's going to be a beautiful vest. And the wedding photo? So romantic!

The burr photo cracked me up. Yes, one burr is a small thing...but that many burrs, in all that fuzzy fur? Not so much. lol!

Wonderful photos. Thanks for sharing!

Patience seems to be the theme here, and it's a good one! Your "true love" pic could be a Hallmark "romantic" greeting card picture!
