I would be on schedule with my life plan, if life didn't keep getting in the way. Isn't that the truth.
Technically our 10th Anniversary was September 6th. By the luck of the calendar, the big day fell on a Saturday. We made reservations at a snazzy restaurant and I bought a bottle of champagne. However, that day Tropical Storm Hannah blew through and I felt crapola. We canceled the reservations and left the champagne in the fridge. We still got the sitter, but only went out for a quick bite. We were home and I was asleep before prime time TV started.
Since our anniversary night didn't live up to expectations, we simply took a rain check on the whole evening. We figured if our marriage has lasted a decade, there wasn't too much risk if we delayed a couple of weeks. We cashed in that rain check this past weekend. In the past two months, Scott and I have seen a lot of each other, but haven't really spent much time together. It turns out that when I feel bad I am a really lousy conversationalist. We made sure to change that this weekend. The weather was beautiful, so we started with champagne and a little snack at the botanical gardens. OK, I had the champagne - Scott has a little toast. Then, we ate at Second Empire - a nice restaurant in Raleigh. Finally, we finished up with coffee near our house. It was the perfect evening. We visited and ate too much and I was little giggly from the bubbly.
So now we are starting our second decade as husband and wife. On the one hand, it is hard to believe that we have been together 10 years and I am still holding at 25 years old. On the other hand, it is hard believe that so many memories can fit in such a short amount of time. If the first 10 years is any indication of the next 10, we are in for a great ride.
That is in the Stroller Lane. Lots of Love.
