"I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life." ~Rita Rudner
This week will mark the 31st wedding anniversary for my husband and me. I brought a quilt out of storage that my mother and grandmother made for us so many years ago. It's made up of embroidered blocks that have the state flowers on them; each block lovingly embroidered by my mom and grandmother. At the time I didn't appreciate all the time that went into making this quilt. I so adore this quilt now because I know the sacrifice of time and talent that was put into it for me.
This recipe comes from the book of my husband's relative. It's an easy to make recipe and tastes great. I plan on making it this week for my husband.

This is a sweet, gentle love story. At Home in Mitford by Jan Karon is a wonderful book about a minister in a small North Carolina town.
