25th Anniversary

Today marks our 25th Anniversary married. So today is a very special day. We started out our day by going out for a really nice breakfast. We reflected on how lucky we are to have our kids, grandkids, health and each other. It was a very romantic breakfast. When we came home, I learned how to do the self portrait setting on our little camera. So we played with that for a bit, knowing I had to have a picture of us for my blog. Then, we went for a nice hour long walk on the beach since it's a beautiful day.

The minute we got back, the phone rang.. It was a mail call. We had to go pick up something special. Ohhh, what fun, we hopped in the car and what was waiting for us..... An Edible Arrangement. This is so exciting and everyone at the Real Estate office where we pick up our mail, was so excited for us too! I've never seen one before in person, so how exciting to get one. We couldn't wait to dip into it and try them out. Yummy. It came in a big purple bowl, that I absolutely love.
We couldn't wait to dip into it and try them out. Yummy. You know, when you get married, you feed each other cake or champagne. Well, even better than that are big luscious chocolate covered strawberries!

Thanks Carrie, Kenny, Michele, Wade, Patience and all the kids. This made our day very special!

Congrats on your 25th Anniversary!
In this day & age ... when people seem to take marriage so lightly ... it is a real accomplishment!
