Cheers to US!

Today is officially our wedding anniversary...7 years and all the good AND bad luck that could come with it. But one thing we agreed upon - every bit of it has been a Great Adventure. We've had so much fun together that we had trouble figuring out how many years it's been for us! Yes, strange, but true! We keep going and going, through troubles and triumphs, joy and sorrow - we're still moving forward, smelling the daisies along the way!

We celebrated yesterday evening by going out for dinner to one of our favorite restaurants. Mr. Wonderful placed our order, and because the Rio Grand was not that busy Sunday evening, he made the waitress come back for the dinner order AFTER we finished our appetizer. Smart man that he is, he figured that if we placed the order all at the same time, the cook would quick-whip-up-the-meal, the waitress would bring it out-all-at-the-same-time and pile it all on the table, just because there wasn't much to do and they probably needed to look busy! If you've ever had that happen to you before, it is no fun to eat a cold meal, unless you have ordered: Ice Cream Sandwiches, a Milk Shake, and a Hot fudge Sundae! No - he didn't order that for us! But the whole event lasted a blissful 2 hours!

What did we find to talk about, you might ask? Our first phone call, our first date, first kiss, and all of the other "firsts" in our relationship...the dreams we've realized together, and the directions we might be headed into our future together. Nothing is certain, except for how we feel about each other. May we have many more wonderful years together!

You two have found the magic way of keeping it new, and alive. Not many of us are able to do that.
You guys are doing this trip around, the right way! You're and inspiration to us all.
So glad that your paths crossed, and that you found each other. Nice touch, remembering together, your firsts.....
Sounds as if you had a lovely meal, and date night. Way to go kids!

Congratulations you two.
It's so nice to hear about two people who are still glad they married each other after 7 years.
It's been 45 years for us, this year, so long term marriages can be done.
Keep up the good work and have that "night out" more often than once a year. It does wonders for a relationship.

Congrats on your anniversry! Sounds like you had a wonderful evening together! When we go out to dinner, I do the same thing, I order each course one at a time. I figure if we are paying for a nice meal, I want t really enjoy it. Not to mention,if we go out to dinner without the little princess, we want to savor that time. LOL

Our anniversary is next week....April Fools day! yup, we fooled everyone and actually got married 10 years ago! LOL
