I read about the forgorren birthdays and anniversaries...and know I am remembering me.... Embarassed

I used to travel because of work...and although I knew the important dates...I never remembered in time to do the card / gift thing...and each missed date piled on more guilt. Sad

I finally solved my problem by going to a florist armed with a list of people and dates...and my credit card... Idea

You can pre-order...they will remember the date and deliver the goods...to the office or at home...and charge the card...and they will do it till you tell them to stop...(years ... Laughing )

If you want to remember to do the dinner and cake thing...have something inexpensive to yourself 2-3 days in advance with the info on the card... Laughing

Just a thought...it does work...

By the way, I have been married for over 34 years, it is just that the 25th was especially memorable.

Lots of drugs!!! Ha Ha Ha. Just kidding. It was so hard for the first 25 years, kids, jobs that didn't pay well, crippling injuries. But now we are having the time of our lives, enjoying our time together and our time with our granddaughter. I think most people give up on each other way too easily. Were there any secrets there, not really.

My Aunt (an artist and amazing Cake decorator) made our Black wedding cake. It was 3 tiers and covered in hand carved chocolate roses, draping down through the tiers. It was gorgeous. We placed our topper in our little freezer, all wrpped up, got back from our Honeymoom, and three days later moved from Tampa, FL to Austin, TX. The topper stayed in a little cooler strapped in via safety belt in the front seat of the rental truck. We stopped ever so often to fill the coller with more ice. One year later, we ate at Basil and asked the server to cut our cake. It was still as delicious as our wedding day. My Aunt had injected it with Grand Marnier (spelling???) and you could just die over the chocolate and orange combonation. We shared our cake with the Chef, kitchen staff, and server. The Chef was amazed at how delicious the cake was. He asked if he could hire my aunt for his wedding. He said "I'll fly her in from Tampa". There is an old saying that if your cake is bitter and freezer burnt by the time you eat it then it means your marriage is no good, but if your cake is as baeutiful and just as delicious as the Big Day, then you are true soul mates.
I like to think that's true.

I love that! I have never heard that before. Mine and DH's cake was beautiful and delicious.
It was just as good on our 1st anniversary, too. We just stayed at home for ours. Here is a picture of ours,
My sister made it and my dd decorated it.
It was white cake w/ bc frosting and silk flowers.

That must be true, because we are just as happy now as when we met 5 yrs ago.
I know that is not really a long time, but hey!
we are getting up in yrs, so we have to make everyday count. Right?
