1979


I thought I would post a few special ornaments over the next few weeks. Each ornament has a special story with it. This first ornament is dated 1979. That is the year Hubby and I started dating, my senior year in high school. We started dating in March and by Christmas I knew John was a keeper for me. So when I did shopping I bought a dated ornament. That was the start off each year buying a dated ornament. Each ornament has to do with something that had happen that year. So over the next few weeks as I share these special things you get to know a little more about me.

My parents and grandparents always gave us an ornament a year, usually with a special meaning from that year behind it. Many were homemade, which makes them even sweeter. When I moved out and got married, I took with me over 40ornaments to start our own tree! I am now passing that tradition on to my nieces.

Just to let you know I was in high school. John had graduated. We were a blind date I'll post about that maybe in March on the 30th anniversary or our first date.
