Vintage Love

Today is my hubby and I's 17th wedding anniversary.  According to etsy, something has to be at least 20 years old to be called vintage.  So I guess you could not call our love vintage YET.  But sometimes it feels that way!

My hubby and I dated for one month before we got married.  And there were plenty of naysayers.  Looking back I am sure now that I did not know what love was 17 years ago.  It is such a blessing we have made it this far.  There have been times we've wanted to divorce each other, but by the grace of God we have stayed together.

I just cannot imagine life with anyone else.  He has worked hard so that I could stay home with our children.  He has raised my oldest son as his own.  It has not been easy.  But I love him more now than I did the day we were married.  It really does feel like a vintage love to me.
Vintage things are worn, and have a story.  Vintage linens are soft and broke in.  Would you really have your linens any other way?  Vintage linens have been through the wringer of an old washer, and then hung out to dry and made bright by the sun.

Yep, that's our love, through the wringer of life, washed and worn, but made bright by the Son.  OH and do we have stories to tell!
Is your love vintage yet?


  1. Congratulations! on the love of your life!
    Ha HA :) Since Etsy is the deciding factor in all things vintage. When it comes to a marriage I feel worn in ant 5 years.
    Thank you so much for coming to see my blog! And thank you for reading my article. I am listing more pouches in my Etsy shop tomorrow evening :)
    Nice to meet you!

  2. Oh my dear Prudence. This post is beyond lovely and totally and opposite of your comment that you left today. That made me laugh. Hard. Congratulations on such a wonderful anniversary and the journey that got you there!

  3. We are 21 years, my Bill and I. And I LOVED what you said about "Vintage Love"...LOVED THAT!!! It is SO TRUE!

    And yes...who would want anything but vintage linen! I have my Italian Great Grandmother's chenille bedspread, that she MADE! And her pillowcases have the trim falling off. = ) I love the FEEL of vintage and just the reality that they came from a different TIME.

    So wonderful to have found you, Prudence!

    Peace of the Lord,

    Happy Anniversary.It sounds like you and your husband started out much the same way my husband and I did.
    I think your love is truly vintage.
