Happiness is . . .

Thirty-seven years with the same wonderful guy. Today is our anniversary. It seems like no time at all since we were both putting ourselves through college, living at home, and squeezing pennies. We were engaged for 2 1/2 years, and it seemed like forever. I drew up so many budgets trying to figure out how we could get married before graduation and it just wasn't possible. Even with little top floor studio apartments going for $75 per month. So we were married one week after we graduated. I can't believe it really is that long ago.

Not sure what it says about us, but we've talked all week about how we should spend our anniversary and didn't come up with anything. We go out to eat at least 1-2 times a week as many times I come home from work too tired to cook so that doesn't seem special any more. We always spend Wednesdays with our son-in-law and daughter - we could call that off but why? We love spending time with them! So I guess this Wednesday will be like most others - having dinner with them, watching Mariners baseball and playing games. So that's what we are going to do.

It's been fun seeing other's wedding pictures and anniversary pictures, so I'll try to scan a couple this afternoon to post.

Gratitudes:

1. Sleeping in, even if it was for only 10 minutes.
2. Fresh, clean sheets
3. Fluffy, newly washed towels
4. Fresh, homemade strawberry lemonade
5. Dove ice cream bars

Happy Anniversary! I'm guessing when every day is special, it's just hard to come up with something more fun than the every day routine!
