TODAY IS OUR 40TH ANNIVERSARY!

We planned our wedding for the 18th to be as close as possible to Valentine's Day so for us our anniversary celebration was from Thursday through today. On Thursday we had a very odd but sweetly romantic dinner at our local minor league ballpark. They offered their luxury suites for private dinners and we went and did that. It was really rather nice and although the food was hardly gourmet, it was okay and the occasion and setting made up for it. 

My husband took off Friday and today and we're just taking the day easy. We got up late and went to a leisurely breakfast. Now I'm on the computer and my husband is watching DVD's. Later we'll probably go to Benihana for dinner. 

Over the next couple of years we'll be slowly adjusting to our son being more and more independent and finally a bit down the road we'll have an empty nest and then my husband will be retiring. It's nice to look forward to more time with my best friend and husband. Forty years, I simply can't imagine where the time has gone!
