8th anniversary

i can't believe it's been 8 YEARS since we eloped. i'm not one for tradition (hence the elopment) but i just looked up traditional anniversary gifts, for year 8 it's linen or lace, no big deal. next year is leather though...something to consider...

i got up in the morning & stumbled down the hallway to the kitchen to start the coffeemaker. (yes, it has an auto-start feature but i figure this little walk is a good wake up call, so i don't fall over in the shower & break the glass doors.)
on the counter B had left purple tulips & a beautiful card for me. (that was kind of difficult to read with my eyes still closed)

at work i anxiously waited for 8, when B would arrive at work & find the flowers & balloons i had plopped on his desk the night before. he was being a butt & didn't call me until after 9, by then i figured he probably had an offsite meeting & i was pissy about the effort i had expended to get the flowers into his office.

we went out for lunch & i told him about delivering his flowers...& explained why i hadn't set everything up better the way i had planned. we didn't go out for dinner, my cold is still keeping me down. hopefully it will be gone this weekend & we can get out of town for some fun.


  1. leather is really an appropriate gift for any year...don't you agree? lol

  2. I'm sure SL would agree! heehee!


tell me your thoughts...
