Today’s our 19th wedding anniversary!
Nineteen years ago –WOW– it seems like it was only yesterday. I remember looking everywhere for a wedding gown and I found that one at a thrift store–what a treasure! It was ten dollars. I couldn’t believe my luck. It looked like it had never been worn. It was exactly what I had envisioned; romantic, lacy, old-fashioned.
My girlfriend worked for a floral warehouse and her gift to me was that magnificent bouquet and all the wedding flowers.
It was a really lovely day.

I’m kinda used to delayed celebrations and I know we’ll make up for it when he returns so I’m not too sad. I’ll just keep the champs on ice a bit longer, that’s all!
I always try to put a positive spin on situations like this–to think about it as something to look forward to, not something I’m missing or deprived of. Glass half full and all that.
