Seven years ago today Linda & I were standing in front of a beautiful waterfall on a gorgious day in Maggie Valley, NC with quite a few family members present. The service done by Miss Caroline's Wedding Chapel and she really knows how to make everything special.
That evening all went across the street from our motel to "Carolina Nights" a dinner theater that served us a great dinner while we watched a live show of great music, dance, comedy and patriotic numbers.
In the morning we all went to Joey's Pancake House and that is all they do so they know how to do it to perfection and are only open to lunchtime. You are lucky to find a parking place there in the morning. After breakfast most everyone decided to start the long journey back to eastern NC except for Linda's daughter Beth and my grandaughter Ashley who accompanied us on our honeymoon to Gatlinburg, TN.
We made so many memories during that week and have a DVD of the activities including the complete wedding so we can go back and hear the sounds and enjoy the scenery anytime we want to.
Linda has changed this old man's life dramatically in a lot of ways. We have traveled to so many places and seen so many wonderful areas of this beautiful country and that is something I never did before meeting her. She helped me discover what living is really like. But that is Linda, always thinking about someone else.
The first seven years has had it bumps along the road but together we have weathered the bumps and came through stronger and happier.
Thinking back all I had heard her mention she wanted that she didn't have is a Verna Bradley purse so that is what I gave her and today we will be going to one of our favorite places to eat, Olive Garden. And while we are in the area we will be visiting Aunt Katie to make the day perfect. Happy Sunday everyone.
