|Some of the amazing metal work of Steel Heart LTD|
Now here is the story. When I started blogging about 7 years ago, I used a photo of an arbor I photographed in Lake Geneva Wisconsin. If you look at my header (The very top of my blog) you'll see the arbor. The way life works is... If you find something you love, you probably can't afford it. If you can someday afford it, it's gone, as it was from the nursery in Lake Geneva. Years passed, but I always looked for that arbor, whenever we would go to a nursery or garden shop. When we were preparing for Jon's wedding, we worked with our local nursery. As a part of our conversation, I pulled up my blog on my phone and asked if he knew where the arbor might have come from. The gentleman mentioned Steel Heart. In the preparations for the wedding, that little tidbit got lost, until last week. I was looking at photos on my Ipad, where sometime last fall I took a screen save of Steel Heart's webpage. We had much to do for our party on Sunday, but we needed a ride.

Then inside... Gazebos...
Lynne once asked me what the significance of the photo of the arbor was...
I loved it the moment I saw it. The photo had no season. It could have been winter, spring, summer or autumn. Now, after all these years it means so much more. It's an icon in my life. It represents me, and my life here in English Valley. Now it will be a part of our life here, and thanks to my generous and sweet partner in love, a symbol of us too.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for your friendship.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
