Steven and I were friends and we even shared a house together in 1980. It turns out he always had feelings for me but he kept them hidden because I was taken. Then, my first husband left me in 2004 because of an affair. I was dealing with my 26-year marriage dissolving before my eyes, when I found out that Steven was divorced for the same reason -his spouse having an affair. I called him at work and we starting talking, and emailing and talking! As crazy at it seems, 3 weeks later we knew we were going to be married as soon as my divorce was final. It was crazy, but definitely Love.
I added a transparency photo of Steven sailing Starfish that I took recently (used my xyron to attach) and a photo of us that he took on the evening of our wedding, June 11, 2005. This was "tipped-in" to the journal the night before with Tacky glue along the spine.
I added color with my trusty water color crayons.
The photo is printed on textured paper similar to watercolor paper.
Water makes the photo inks migrate like you see above.

I really think you should be listening to
Cole Porter's song while you are viewing!
On the other side of the tip in photo page is an email from Steven . . .
Finished . . .
The "courtesy, friendship & letters" opens to show an email I wrote to our
best friend Garth, telling him about how Steven and I had fallen in love.
Yes, I save all of these things!
This took me a little while to produce, but it was worth it.
Happy Anniversary, Steven!
