25 Years of Marriage

Yesterday was my 25th wedding anniversary.  I wish I had photos to show you of low those many years ago, but I haven't learned how to operate the scanner yet!

DH's sister came by with these beautiful Waterford flutes and a bottle of champagne for us.  She is great and we were very appreciative of her thoughtfulness!

Before I left work yesterday this arrived for me!  (and yes, that's my messy desk at work)
Here I am holding the flowers and the balloons.  In case you can't see it, the balloon in the back says "I love you".  There were 25 white roses.

Why white?  Well on the morning of our wedding, he send me a dozen white roses!  So when he does flowers for an anniversary (and it has been quite awhile) they are always white roses.
I ended up getting him tickets to the Nascar race on Sunday at the Michigan International Speedway in MI and Pit passes.  He can take DS with him.  They should have a good time.

We went out to dinner last night and then watched Allison swim in the 800 free relay.  She was the lead off swimmer and the relay took third.  So now she has a bronze medal!!  

It was a good night for everyone!!

How BEAUTIFUL! Glad you figured out what to get him. Something he'll use is always good.

How sweet of your husband. I'm afraid my husband thinks things like tennis shoes and handbags. No roses but I love him anyway. Congratulations on 25 years of marriage! That's saying something in these days!
