The Anniversary 2007

We exchanged cards in the morning and spent the day in different towns. We met at the Jr. High for The Older Daughter's registration/open house in the evening, then went home in separate cars. It sounds terribly unromantic, but the truth is Great Scott gave me possibly the best card ever (he wrote personal stuff in it--my favorite kind); we had Rosewood Farms' chocolates to celebrate after dinner, and we'd purchased a mutual gift--a DVD: "The Merchant of Venice" with Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons--which hopefully we will find time to put to use this weekend.

I was given some excellent celebration suggestions from both my Blogger and my Facebook readers, and will probably put them to use the very next weekend that The Girls to to their grandmother's. Steak it is, and a quiet night together, and candles. Right. Thank you all for your input.

That Great Scott took the time to compose something thoughtful is very sweet.

I think that quiet anniversaries with homemade gifts are the best kind! My husband (he's an artist) once painted me a watercolor for one of mine and I was touched and thrilled. However
...I wouldn't mind going to Paris either...

Thank you all very, very much.

Seeker--It caught me unsuspecting, which made it sweeter.

Michael--Ah, but I DO need help. So very, very badly...

Gretchen--Thank you, Ma'am!

Paul--Yes. I like looking at it from the beginning of the 18th year.

Susan--Scott once wrote a found poem for me as an anniversary gift, which I treasure. Paris, hmmmm?
