Once Upon A Time & Anniversary Gifts

September 23, 2011

DH surprised me with a trip to the North Carolina mountains. Photos & stories next week.


Once upon a time a very young nursing student met a young medical student & they fell in love. He proposed. She said, “Yes.”

Tomorrow DH & I celebrate 34 years of marriage. That’s a very long time! I’ve never dated anyone this long before!

Anniversary Gifts

Reading down this list it appears I’m out of luck until next year! Wait a minutes, since DH waited until our 5th anniversary to give me my engagement ring, hey – he was a broke medical student, he could use that one… 5th anniversary: Wood… Wood! Wood? Well, no wood-burning fireplace so I don’t need a cord of firewood. But, hey, wood could also be furniture… Hmmm… This could work out nicely… Let me think about this…
