The Anniversary Gift

Friday, August 4th was my fifth wedding anniversary. Rich and I exchanged cards earlier in the day. Then we went out to dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant, one that's about 30 minutes away from our house, and because of this we save our visits there for special occasions.

We ordered our respective "usuals." Gnocchi for me. Filet Mellanzani for him.

After dinner, we went to Blockbuster and rented the first two discs of the first season of Lost, and The Weatherman. We came home, ate popsicles, and watched the movie. Then we went to sleep. That was our anniversary.

Our anniversary gift to eachother was an expensive one this year. We started planning for it back in December of 2003, and it took much longer to arrange than we thought it would. It was costly, too, in more ways than one. And it's going to arrive late. But despite the problems with ordering, packaging, and shipping, it's the best and most amazing gift we could have given eachother.

Beastie arrives in 15 days.

    Happy Anniversary! Yes the gift that you are giving each other is one that will definately keep on giving and bringing you joy for years to come. My son was born 2 weeks before my second anniversary to my hubby. He was quite an anniversary gift.

    That's giving me goosebumps (in a good way, not a scary the-boogey-man's-gonna-get-me way).

    I love the way you put it - "despite problems with ordering, packagin and shipping..."

    Your anniversary sounds wonderfully low-key. That's how we do things too - enjoy the things you already enjoy with one another.

    I am so excited for you and Rich - the Beastie countdown has officially begun!
