on our wedding anniversary! 30 years since our wedding, to be exact! And yes, I was a child bride! We have never been the couple that celebrates in a big way. Life and kids and finances seemed to take priority. But this year we are finding ourselves in a place where our kids are almost grown up and we've got a little more free time on our hands. Maybe another reason is that I know how long our parents enjoyed their marriages: 42 and 54 years, and both were interrupted by cancer. You never know how much time you'll have left. But we are still committed to each other today as we were on day one. So that's worth celebrating!
We have a trip planned soon - carefully planned when our youngest goes to camp - but I wanted to surprise the hubs on THE DAY with some little gifts over the weekend. The sweet thing is, I didn't deny my frugal self. It went kinda like this:
Lunch @ Vast
A little something delicious that we both love hidden in the desk drawer...
The little something he got me was a new journal...my other one is about full!
I don't share this to make you think we have some fantastic marriage and never any disappointments, but I share this to remind you to take time to appreciate your loved ones, whether it's a spouse, parent, or child.
Little things do mean a lot!
What little thing can you do to brighten someone's day today?
