Anniversary and Another Loom?

Happy Anniversary to us! Carlos actually had to remind me this morning, how lame am I? (Work has been completely insane for him and I'm stressed about finding time to weave and take care of the kids, and the date just completely slipped my mind...)

We were married on October 6, 2000 - although we were together for so long before we got around to getting married (nearly six years) (good grief, we're going on 14 years together!), the wedding was almost an afterthought. We were all about the honeymoon, anyway (three weeks in Spain!), the wedding was more for our families than for us.

There he is, our very own Big Papi. (This was taken outside of the Palais du Papes in Avignon, France, just about two years ago on the nose - Ms. B certainly has gotten bigger since then!)

And there he is on our honeymoon in Segovia, Spain, in October 2000. Fewer grey hairs then! (Kids will do that to you, won't they?)

And, in weaving news, I think I may have stumbled across a new (to me) loom... Uh-oh. A used 40" AVL 16-shaft compu-dobby with two sectional warp beams, six reeds, spool rack/tension box (no idea how to use these, lol, but I'll learn, I'm sure!), electric bobbin winder, ball winder and a very good price... Oh my. I'm hoping to go see it in action when the work craziness dies down for Carlos after this weekend.

You look way to young to have been *anything* for 14 years! :)

And Spain for a honeymoon? How wonderfully romantic. Can't wait to find out all about your new to you loom.

Weave like an Egyptian,
Jane

Thanks for the well wishes everybody! (Big brownie points for Jane, lol - I'm actually 40 - eeks - sssh, don't tell!) I'm dithering on the loom... Not quite sure what to do. It's a good price, but it's still pricey, argh!

Congrats on your anniversary! I hope you get to do something special together.

I just loved watching your kids pick apples in the previous post. Fall, to me, is all about the apple harvest and the pumpkin harvest. Good food.
