Momentous dates that passed by without comment while we were on vacation

June 21st was the summer solstice, my favorite day of the year. As a warm weather loving, outdoor dining, gardening, sun worshipping fiend this is my favorite time of year.

AND

June 22nd was our twenty third wedding anniversary. *pauses , waits for applause to die down* I have lived with this man for half my life. I squeeze my eyes shut and I can remember the girl that walked down the aisle that day in June. She was twenty two, far too young to get married, and very naive. (Aren't all twenty two years olds?)

It took that girl many years to grow up and realize a thing or two about marriage. And even thought the Saint was twenty eight years old that June day, that's not fully grown yet either now is it? So I guess they learned some things together.

While you would undoubtedly gain vast insights on connubial bliss where I to share what we've learned I'll save that for another day. Because I'm so excited!!!!

You do remember the significant wailing and gnashing of teeth that has been going on around here over my P.O.S. desk top don't you? Well look what was waiting for me when I got home last night!!!



And such a sweet and sentimental note!

(I always get you flowers for our anniversary....This Counts!)

So instead of ripping the hair out of my head in the office, I'm clicky clacking away from the comfort of the sofa while enjoying a cup of coffee. Don't you just LOVE happy endings?

Happy Anniversary! June 21st is my favorite day, too, because it's my birthday...

I think there is no way to wait to be "old enough" to be married, because the only way you can learn about being married is by doing it.

Happy 23rd!!

The 21st was my eleventh anniversary. I was a few months shy of 25 but still too young. Fortunately I waited til I was 30 to have my first baby. Any earlier and it would have been bad for everybody! :)
