Eleven Years

Motor Man and I were married eleven years ago today.

That would be February 2, 2002. 02-02-02. Our ceremony began at 2:02.

We were married at historic Bacon’s Castle in the room known as the “Ladies’ Chamber”. My Aunt Martha was married in the same room on Christmas Day in 1935.


A few of our elderly friends were concerned about bad weather when we announced our wedding date, but it was a beautifully sunny February day, as evidenced by our squinty eyes in this next picture.

This was taken just outside the front door after the ceremony. Just look at that shiny new wedding ring on Motor Man’s hand!


Happy Anniversary to you, my Motor Man.  You just don’t know how happy I am to be your wife.

  32. Happy belated Anniversary!! Love your pictures and you!!! The years fly by and so much to do. I am sure the room was not so pretty when Mom and Dad were married there but the love and family support must have been. Can you begin to imagine how many must have filled that room on Christmas day. The preparation like cooking etc. grandma, Aunt Sister, your Mom and all the rest were doing. Bet too that fireplace was roaring!! My imagination overwhelms me to thimk how very hard times must have been but love came through it all. Love, love my Ellis Family!!
