War and an ocean may have separated them at one time, but Ed and Jackie’s love was an unstoppable force, only growing stronger as the years progressed. They met as young teenagers and forged an extraordinary love that lasted through a lifetime.
At sixteen, Ed began dating a girl who happened to be Jackie’s friend. Jackie, then fourteen, asked her friend to find her a date so the four of them could double. However, the moment that Ed and Jackie saw each other, it was love at first sight, and the original arrangement of double dating was forgotten.
Ed and Jackie began dating shortly thereafter and were later married. They recently celebrated 61 years of marriage and love this past June. Throughout their life together the two of them have been inseparable – from golf outings to hairdresser appointments, morning walks and grocery shopping – they did everything and went everywhere together.
Even when Ed cut the grass on the riding mower, Jackie would walk between the front and the back windows to watch him. She’d catch his eye, smile and wave, her entire face lighting up at the sight of him. And every time, Ed smiled and happily waved back at the wife he adored.
Everyday they shared kisses and hugs. Not a day passed without Jackie looking up from her word puzzle and saying, “Ed, I love you so much – you are my whole life. I love you more than anything!”
Still celebrating Christmas. My boyfriend is a rock star. Plain and simple. <3

Today’s how-to: Transform a pallet into a (succulent-filled) table. Even the legs for this garden-table project are repurposed: they were found at a garage sale.

So, I have this friend at work named Hannah and she’s great. All day long, we laugh + talk + send each other silly emoticons over instant messenger (all in between working, I promise. We are hard, productive workers). She is really a blessing from God.
Here’s one of our conversations from the other day:
Hannah (talking about a craft I was making): You’re like Martha Stewart!
Stefanie (beaming): Seriously? Besides the whole convict thing, she’s totally my hero!
S: You know? That might be one of the nicest things that anyone has ever said to me. Just like when Scott told me that he thinks I look like Zooey Deschanel. Biggest compliment ever!
H: Patrick’s always telling me that I look like this girl too - I think she’s on BONES.
S: Are you talking about Emily Deschanel?
-Pause for googling-
H: Oh my gosh! That’s totally her!
S: Our boyfriends think we’re celebrity sister doppelgangers!
I always knew our friendship was special…
I have this thing about marching bands. I absolutely adore them - well, the good ones anyway. Anytime I hear the trill of a flute or see the slide of a brassy trombone in combination with orthopaedic marching shoes, I want to join rank and file and begin roll stepping with the best of them.
Also. More than a little part of my heart wishes I was in the Detroit Party Marching Band. They rock so hard.
