16 Sweet Years and an 11 Year Old Sweetheart

Having been married sixteen sweet years, my husband and I decided to celebrate as we always do at our favorite bed & breakfast in Bardstown, KY... The Beautiful Dreamer. We absolutely LOVE going there and have been going there for the past ten years. The owners are wonderful Christian people and they spoil their guests royally! They are amazing cooks and hostesses. The Beautiful Dreamer is in the heart of Bardstown and is located directly across from My Old Kentucky Home and the Stephen Foster Story Ampitheater. We love our visits to The Beautiful Dreamer because there are fantastic restaurants, great shows, tons of antique and specialty shops, a state park, amazing tours, and much much more. I think now that we've been visiting for so long, our fav thing to do is just sit on the porch in the evening while listening to a wedding hosted at My Old KY Home. This gives us the opportunity to remember our own wedding while celebrating so many wonderful years together.

This visit to The Beautiful Dreamer was more special than ANY other. As we entered our amazingly decorated colonial room, there sat a handcrafted anniversary card just for us. No, it was not from the owners. My first thought was, "Aahhh, Dean (dear husband) must have had Wynne (dear daughter) put it together for him." So I picked it up and opened it with Dean looking over my shoulder. It was from Wynne HERSELF. She made the card, asked her school teacher for assistance in mailing it, and then asked the owners to have it in our room upon arrival. Can you believe that little sweetheart?!!! Of course, Dean and I both were crying and smiling and lovin' that little girl more than ever! What a special way to celebrate! She even had her little brother sign the card. God is good. Yes, He is oh so good!
