We forgot - again



I guess my dad is right. One sign of a successful, happy marriage is forgetting one's wedding anniversary. We're so blissful that we have no need to set aside one day of the year to remember and be glad we're married. Every day is enjoyed and we're always celebrating being husband and wife.

Yes, we forgot it - again. Today marks our 25th wedding anniversary and we both forgot about it until Dad came with a card and a cheerful, "Happy Anniversary!" I guess the look on my face was comical, because he started laughing. I thanked him, then called Steve (he's at the golf course playing 9 holes of "best ball" with Tom, David, and Sam) and wished him a happy anniversary. The phone was silent for a few seconds, then Steve asked if I'd just now remembered. I apologized, and admitted that was the case. He said he'd forgotten, too, but he loves me and wished me a happy anniversary, too.

This is not the first time we've forgotten our anniversary, but it is the "biggest" one we've forgotten. Isn't 25 supposed to be the silver anniversary or something like that?

Happy Anniversary! Yes, 25 is a big one! So funny that you both forgot. I always remember the month of our anniversary, but I usually have to look up the date. And, don't even ask me how many years we've been married. I never know.

Oh, well, I don't remember if it's silver, but I'd say this one is priceless.

Happiest of Anniversaries! May this year bring you so much joy, love, and warmth that you forget next year's anniversary, as well.

You have got to be kidding!

Well, I hope y'all will do something special. It will be a good example for your children :)

We decided to take the whole family (plus a few of the neighbor's kids) out to eat at a local restaurant. Then we came home, opened a bottle of champagne, and enjoyed a glass together. It was a wonderful evening!
