For almost twenty-four years now, my husband and I have been in a debate about which day of April our wedding anniversary falls on. He's set on one date, I'm set on another, and if I pull out our wedding album to find the answer, we'll both have forgotten by the following year and be back to debating it again.
I've thought of solving the problem, which isn't really much of a problem at all, by stitching a wedding sampler and hanging it where we'll walk past it all day long, but that led to another problem. I kept my maiden name when we got married. For the fifteen years I've been stitching, that's been keeping me from following through on the idea.
Then I saw this, which Grandma had tucked away in one of her bedroom drawers:
There is no last name on that wedding sampler. After I realized that, I searched Pinterest for wedding samplers -- no last names.
Where did I get the idea that those things had last names on them?
It's been a long time since I pulled out the wedding album to check the date. We look at Hubby's work schedule, find a day that he's got free, and designate that as our anniversary for the year.
