Thought I would update you with the awesome news that I married my best friend back on October 10th of this year (2011).  This is me with the handsome Chad Wurzer, commonly known as Mr. Patch Abilities!  HA! 
We chose a very very simple wedding with the JP and a couple of witnesses.  Since every wedding deserves to be photographed, we drove up to Dunning's Spring, just outside Decorah, Iowa where this gorgeous cold spring gushes out from the side of a bluff and cascades down the hill as a waterfall.  Thus creating the perfect backdrop for a most gorgeous couple, if I do say so myself.  Hee Hee!
Would you believe I chose my outfit just 15 minutes before leaving for the courthouse?  And in this next picture you'll see why I didn't, or couldn't take much time to choose my clothes . . . . because at this point, the items of clothing that still fit were becoming more scarce!
And here's why.  At the time, I was going on 7 months pregnant.  All planned of course (smile). 
I love this picture of us. Some people wouldn't dream of having a wedding day photo showing their pregnancy.  I, on the other hand, am so grateful to be well into this chapter of my life, that I want these great pictures to look back at one day and tell my kids how we met, fell in love and couldn't wait to start our brood.  
I'm 39 in this photo, so I'm not getting any younger to be wasting any moments on waiting to have munchkins.  Hence, the baby bump on my wedding day.  I'm even smiling as I write this. =)

So, as you can see I've been a very busy girl this year.  And I'll be starting 2012 with an even bigger baby bump!  I'll keep ya posted.  In the meantime, my creative juices just keep flowing with new Patch Abilities design ideas.  This has been quite the update to my blog, wouldn't you agree??

Till next time . . . . . 

I'll keep blogging, as long as you keep peeking in on me. =)


  1. Congratulations to you both! You both look so happy.

  2. Congratulations on your wedding AND on your new little one who, it would seem, should be arriving )or maybe HAS arrived?) at any time!!!

  3. Double Congratulations! One for the wedding and one for the baby to be. I wish you a very Merry Christmas as I am waiting for my quilt store of choice to send me an e-mail telling me that my Jan. 2012 Patch Ability is ready to mail. Keep us posted on the date of arrival of the newest little bundle.

  4. Marvelous pictures of your wedding day! Hope to see pics of the newest member when he/she arrives. Keep up the good work!

    Margy, The JaM Patch

  7. Anxiously awaiting the news of your baby bump arrival! Did you have a little girl or a little boy? Are you going to share a picture?

  8. Warmest of greetings from Canada. What a wonderful story. You made me laugh and cry at the same time. So very happy and proud of you. All the best to you both Mr. and Mrs Patchabilities.
