Ten Year Anniversary

W  was so sweet. He told me that he wanted me to get a special piece of jewelry for our tenth anniversary.  He's never said that before that I can remember.  So we walked to the stores near where we live, but I didn't find anything that seemed to jump out at me.

But I did get hungry and we decided that we were going to go out to dinner.  I'd never been to Outback Steakhouse and so that is where we went. They had a special going so we got two specials and some mac n' cheese (and a blooming onion).  It was so good and it was lovely not to have to do the dishes.

I know going to dinner with the whole family on our anniversary may or may not seem like a big deal to some and W's co-workers would probably call him cheap, but let me assure you, it was Heaven. Plus, the place had a parking lot (extremely rare in NYC). It made it feel quite suburban.

I told the kids about the day we got married, when and how W and I met, and they listened and I felt so blessed.  I looked into W's sparkly eyes and felt so in love.   I am so glad I have him!

We came home and watched a movie together.  It was a great anniversary.

Here is to ten years with my best friend, ever. And then to eternity! I love you, W!
