27 Year Anniversary Today


Mike and I were married 27 years ago today, on a windy, chilly fall afternoon. My bride's maids all wore red, my favorite color. Mike knows it's my favorite...and that red roses are my favorite flower! I found this gorgeous arrangement on the piano. He gave me a beautiful card, too. He always puts cute little sentiments in it, like I'm his 'other half.' There's a story that says once there was only one type of person--no males or females. That person broke in two--and for all eternity one half always seeks the other. That's why you sometimes hear the expression 'my better half.'
The kids gave me candy. I think they gave Mike candy, too (the box looks like Baci...mine are Lindor Truffles, mmmmm) but he hasn't opened his box yet.

We're going out to dinner tonight. I'm not sure where I want to go yet. We're not into 'fancy,' so I think it will be a little restaurant in Northport (our favorite hangout) that serves great seafood.

Happy Anniversary to you!!! Ours was November 18th. I think going to a special favorite restaurant is much better than trying to be fancy too!

Thanks to everyone. I'll try to write on each of your blogs through the day. I've had a cold all week and this morning my chest really hurts and my voice is completely shot. Probably because Mike and I talked a lot last night. It was a really nice evening. We decided on Chili's for dinner, since I wasn't in the mood for seafood, after all. All in all, though, a very nice anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! 27 years, it's a milestone in a day and age when marriages are lucky to last 27 weeks! SusieQ told me about your special day. Mac and I have been married 39 years (October 15). It's hard getting them housetrained, isn't it?
