19 Years and Counting

Hubby brought me flowers yesterday.

They had these cool roses made from decorative cabbages - I just love them.

It was our anniversary - 19 years  ( I know I can't believe it either, I'm way too young to be married for that long. wink, wink)  Which is just great but the truth of the matter was...Huh...I was a bit worried because I took that Stop & Give me Twenty Pledge of sewing through sleet or snow or anniversaries and I'm serious about keeping it.

We always go out to eat and I knew when I came home I wouldn't want to sew. I would be just too tired. And then, my hubby said the magic words - "let's have your homemade pizza". Yikes. That's not very romantic!  But then I could sew - Okay, sounds like a good plan.  But a good marriage is always full of compromises so I did my part and bargained for dessert out. Deal! We went to Johnny Rockets and had hot apple pie with ice cream. Oh yummy.

I did get in an hour and 20 minutes of sewing too. Yay!

Next year is our 20th and I think we should do something extra special.  What are your suggestions?

Happy (20 minutes) Stitching,
Linda
