I forgot to tell you all

One of the bloggers I read regularly just celebrated her 21st wedding anniversary which reminded me that I had a story to tell you all.

While we were in Montreal, just like every year when we go, husband & I had an anniversary. Husband rolls over on the day before when he wakes up and says "tomorrow is our anniversay". "I know" I tell him. He says "I just want you to know that I am really, really happy". How cute is that?

Fast forward to the next day. Husband rolls over and says "Wow. 19 years. That's a looooong time". "I know - doesn't feel like a day over 25" I tell him....... "be honest.." I whisper "did you ever for one second think we would actually last this long?" I can see him thinking "should I be honest?" (seriously - I swear I smelled wood burning!). He decides to be honest. "Hell no!!" and then breaks into a fit of laughter. Oy!!

We went out for dinner that evening just the two of us - to the Brasserie Manoir - which was so close to my friend's house we could walk there and back. It was quiet but quite nice.

So, now we just have to make it through the rest of our lives!


  1. What a cute story!! :)

  2. such a sweet story.
    and when I hear things like that from my husband---that he is really and truly happy----the joy *I* feel is unparalleled as well.

  3. Yeah, Mr. P and I talk about how we 'shouldn't' have ever made it (we knew each other 6 months before we got married and we were 19/21)....
