It's Another Wedding Anniversary--13 Years!

Tomorrow is our 13th Wedding anniversary and as usual, we are taking this whole week off work! YIPPEE! We gave Abby a special bone Saturday to start our celebration.  She liked it so much that she didn't want to leave it out of her sight and took it outside with her when she went on her walk.  At first she just laid down and chewed on it but then she did walk around the block, carrying it with her. It is just so nice being home together and doing things with each other.

We have made lots of changes to our home and life over the years and have had some low points as well as mostly high points. It is so nice to have a spouse to share things with and experience things together. I am so thankful the we found each other, which I am convinced was God's doing. When we got married, there were two less lonely people in the world. (We like that song!)

Our plans for Monday include a visit to our zoo in the morning, lunch at Olive Garden with the gift card I got today from one of the boys in my Sunday School class (More about this on Tuesday), some reading, some blogging, and certainly fun with our pets. It may not sound all that exciting to you, but to us, it's a great day just because we are together.

For the 13th wedding anniversary, our book says the gifts should be lace for traditional or for modern, textiles or furs.  We don't need any of these things so this year we are buying a DVD player (which I hope I can figure out how to connect to our HD TV) and transferring some old movies to DVD so I will be able to use some clips from them for blog posts.

I've got that whole Flinstone "Happy Anniversary" song going in my head right now!

Happy Anniversary to you!! How sweet that you found each other and have so much in common. Such joy!

Oh--you DO have fur for your anniversary--except it has legs and a wet nose. :)

Happy Anniversary to both of you! It's wonderful that you two found each other and are so happy today! I agree with Lin, you have fur in your house already so just need to add something a little lacy! :)

Ugghhh!!! Lin, thanks a lot, now I have the Flintstones anniversary song going through MY head!!!

Happy Anniversary, Karen and Gerard! My husband and I feel the same way about anniversaries-- nice, quiet, simple. Just as long as we're together. Congratulations. :)

Karen said...

Happy Anniversary to the both of you! My hubby and I both enjoy being at home together with nothing particular to do. We usually work in our yard.

Happy anniversary! It sounds to me like you are celebrating it exactly the right way - doing what you want to, and doing it together!

Karen and Gerard said...

Thanks to all of you for your happy wishes and kind comments! We had a very nice day together and even got good news at my radiation doctor one-year followup appointment! (My blood pressure was 120 over 58 which they were happy with--quite different from the reading I got when I went to the dentist! It was high that day!)

Oh, a BIG Happy Anniversary to both of you. I'm so glad you found each other because you are a wonderful couple and here's to many more years.
