We celebrated 18 years of marriage with a wonderful day.
We donated the flowers for church, since our anniversary actually fell on Sunday. Family Garden florist did a fabulous job with the bouquet! When I called, I told them the occasion, that my favorite flowers are gladiolas (they are), & that I like "fall colors" - with just that little to go on they created a gorgeous arrangement of white and orange glads, sunflowers, roses, and more. We were listed in the bulletin so we got congratulated during Passing of the Peace and Pastor Marilyn mentioned us during the Joys and Concerns.
We bought ourselves an HDTV as our big gift and a new Wii game as a bonus gift. We had spent Saturday setting it up, so we used Sunday afternoon as the chance to play with the system. Wii pinball looks great on the new tv, by the way! We had a light lunch accompanied with our traditional root beer floats while we played games and relaxed.
After a quiet, restful afternoon, we went out to dinner at Sullivan's Steakhouse. The ambiance, the service, and the meal were all awesome! We had such a great time.
It was a delightful way to mark our special day and enjoy just being together.
