Oh how lovely, many congratulations! I am a great believer in dessert first, it's one of the perks of being a grown-up!We celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary last May, but that is just a celebration of the legal formalities. Our REAL anniversary celebrates the day, 27 years ago, when we knew that she and I would be 'us' from that time forth. I think we believed it then, despite all the ways in which a relationship can go astray, and - Lo and Behold - it is as true today.
The proximity to the long weekend of Thanksgiving sometimes makes this awkward but also gives us more time to be thankful for all the things that drew us together and kept us together - a time to be thankful for each other.
We'll celebrate, of course, with the usual flowers and dinner, but, at my age (78), we'll have dessert first (and, maybe, last too). Ya never know. I think Ol' St. Pete would understand if I showed up at the Pearly Gates with meringue on my face.
