No, I didn’t fix my sweetheart toast for breakfast on our anniversary. As a matter of fact, I haven’t fixed him anything for breakfast in a very long time. In spite of that, he has stayed married to me. And believe me, he’s had plenty of reasons to not stay married to me. I don’t know how I got so lucky.
We did toast each other to celebrate our wedding anniversary this past weekend.
If you read my last post, you know that I was sitting on this loveseat when he proposed to me! Yes, that was many years ago (44, but whose counting?), and no, it’s not the same upholstery. I decided that it would be a good place for us to toast our anniversary.
You are probably wondering what that mess is in those two champagne glasses. Those were the glasses we used at our wedding reception, and they are filled with remnants of the bouquet I carried.
I used one of the plates from our china pattern we selected when we married. (Lenox Moonspun)
I put breadsticks in a stem from our selected crystal (also Lenox Moonspun).
The wine stems had nothing to do with our wedding. I used them, because I love them. I ordered these beauties from Vanna’s Armoire Etsy.
I have always suspected that he decided I was the girl for him when I told him that I love daisies (so much less expensive than roses – cheapest date he’d ever had)! He always brings me daisies for our anniversary.
I included a little reminder of why we were toasting (you know, when you get older, and you start drinking wine, you might forget why you’re drinking it).
Thank you for joining us for our little anniversary celebration.
