Linen & Leather

Hi everyone!

I hope your weekend was a restful one.  Hubby and I celebrated our 28th anniversary Saturday.  It’s been a wonderful journey full of life’s joys and trials….I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

You don’t marry someone you can live with, you marry the person who you cannot live without. ~unknown 

In honor of our anniversary, a few humorous quotes on marriage:

No man is truly married until he understands every word his wife is NOT saying.

An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets the more interested he is in her.

When a husband brings his wife flowers for no reason, there’s a reason. – Molly McGee

A good marriage would be between a blind wife and a deaf husband. – Honore De Balzac

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband, while a man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

When a man opens a car door for his wife, it’s either a new car or a new wife.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man. – Lana Turner

I’m linking up with Patti for Visible Monday and Kristin for Monday Mingle! Go check out the lovely ladies!

  3. Happy 28th Anniversary! That’s just wonderful!!

    You look beautiful in that linen dress, and love the leather with it! The combo reminds me of an Hermes purse {which is never a bad thing}!

    xo, sam

  4. I seem to repeat myself each week…your are absolutely gorgeous….you make 50 look aspirational! You do us all proud my dear!

    Congratulations on 28 years…my husband and i will be celebrating 25 this year! You make being married look inviting also…not many can claim 25 years! Kudos!

  5. Happy Anniversary, I love your outfit….especially the dress. I love the elegant look. I also like how you added the belt = )

  6. i usual don’t gravitate to the color of this dress just because of my skin color, but i would love to have this dress in my closet!!!
    happy anniversary to you
    husband and i are coming up on our 27th
    amazing isn’t it???!!

  7. Happy Anniversary!! How wonderful to be still in love. We will be having our 18th in a couple of months. I love this dress…very sharp–simple lines = elegance.

  8. ooooooooo those shoes!!!!! nice look you got going on! great lessons in quotes too. not many people make it to 28 yrs. congrats. you’re the best!!!

  9. Wow, happy anniversary! I always admire those couples that can fight the storms of life and remain together. I have failed in this area myself, but it always makes me smile when I see others with marital success. It’s very inspiring to others. Oh, and your outfit is amazing, as usual. I love the splash of animal print. Last night I ALMOST bought a shoe with a dab of animal print, and when I saw your outfit I said, “Now I have to get those shoes.” Jeannie, you are encouraging me to spend money today. Good thing those shoes are on sale! 🙂 xo

    • Lol! I hope you got those shoes…especially if they were on sale!
      Marriage is wonderful, but it does take a lot of work. I’m sorry yours didn’t work out…maybe you can try again? 🙂
      Thank you for your sweet words!

  10. Congrats again! I love all the quotes, make me smile! You look fabulous in a linen dress, the neutral tones really suit your honey skin tone. I like the leather accents looks perfect with leopard prints too. You have a great style!


  11. Hi Jeannie, a beautiful dress, a gorgeous color and a beautiful tissue. I love the way the league belt, is another touch of Jeannie. The relationship shoes sweater is very interesting, but the sweater does not look good in photos, a pity. There are also statements about marriage written by men … 🙂 🙂

    • Thank you Josep!
      Sorry you don’t like the sweater…this dress needed something to add some interest to the neutral/simple dress. Nothing too overwhelming… also came in handy for a cool morning.

      Yes, some were definitely written by men. 🙂

    • Hi Kathleen!
      Thank you! Yes, they’re pockets. I love them, too.
      It’s actually a sweater not a scarf…..I wanted to add a little contrast to otherwise a neutral dress.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it very much!
