...or is it our passion? Why not both? Hell, this is really about 24 different creations of the moment for some very special people... trading our labor of love in celebration of 24 years of theirs! We were honored and graced with the opportunity to prepare something truly wonderful for a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary...yes, you guessed it~ their 24th! How fortunate one is when this happens...to give of yourself hoping in return for nothing but happiness on their part...a smile...a laugh...an experience like no other. Simply to give is a gift in and of itself...that is how I see it. A personal expression that transcends itself into a memory for another...inspired by all that surrounds me. Thank you to all who are. Couldn't do it without you. This is what was created a couple nights ago...
