Yep we have now been married for 5 years. The longest relationship either of us have ever had.
How young does that make us seem? Really it just means we are behind, yep behind all those people out there that figure things out nice and young and got going.
It would have to be the year 2055 for us to make it to our 50th year Anniversary. Not sure what the chances are of that :) I would be coming up the rear of 80 years old. Hadn’t ever really pictured myself living that long. My pop on my mothers side almost made 90 and boy that seemed ancient! He still looked good though, a handsome chap. I guess it’s all to do with the quality of life.
I’ve always thought it a good idea to set goals for things we want to do in this life, have or see.
According to whomever decides such things, we should be buying one of the following gifts. Not that we paid any attention the last 4 years, so why should we now.
5th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
Traditional Anniversary Gift: Wood
Modern Anniversary Gift: Silverware
I thought it interesting that their is now a modern take on these gifts. So now we have at least 2 people that think their ideas should be adhered to, or is it just an easy way to think of something to give your significant other, because you can’t possibly think of anything yourself?
We had decided on a gift for one an other at the start of our marriage I’m glad we made it obtainable. It won’t break the bank and it reminds us of our commitment to one another. It’s gold. I almost couldn’t get them, now that would of been bad, but with persistence I came through. What can I say, gold suites us both better :)
Now we’ve hit 5 years, I guess we should set a 10 year goal, this one would need to be larger. I’m thinking an overseas holiday, just the two of us. (big grin) We might need to start saving for it now. We aren’t as close as we once were (location wise), whilst living in the states :( Greece and Barcelona are the destination.
I am awfully grateful for my husband, he is my stallion! Can’t think of anyone else I’d rather be married to. He once again came through with another poem/poetry for our special occasion. I’ll share:
Will there come a time when I grow tired of you?
Never my love
Will this heart of mine lose it’s desire for you?
Never my Love
Love won’t end when you know that my whole life
depends on you
Love won’t end I’ve asked you to spend your whole
life with me
We have been truly blessed to find one another, to have 3 beautiful children together and to know whatever may be, as my engagement ring signifies there will always be three, he, I and God/ he, I and our children. What else could we possibly need.
Don’t answer that honey! I love you…..
