It was twenty years ago today ...


We went to a nice restaurant for dinner – just the three of us – and had cake at home.

The three of you?

Yes, we took our son, because he’s definitely the best thing that ever happened to us during our twenty years of wedded bliss. (BLISS, I tell you!)

Not very romantic? Eh. We like him.

And Neil and I have a getaway weekend planned at the beach about six weeks from now.

I wore my diamond necklace that Neil unknowingly got for me one Valentine’s Day.

The restaurant made us feel special:


And the rest was cake!


Yep, that's our original cake topper. It's just a cheap little plastic thing - I seem to recall having trouble even finding a cake topper back then, even though I lived in big city L.A.

When my son saw it, he said, "Did Dad used to have red hair?"

Happy Anniversary!! Gorgeous wedding pic!

It's funny, I also had trouble finding a cake topper with the right hair colors. DH always had lighter hair then me, but all cake-toppers with light-haired grooms had blonde brides, and the ones with brown-haired brides had even darker-haired grooms. So I actually got a paint pen and painted over the hair so the groom's hair was lighter than the bride's! I think it was getting uncommon to use those cake toppers by then (17 yrs ago) as most people were just using flowers or nothing, but I wanted a bride & groom on my cake like I'd always imagined! We kept it on our mantel for years...I'm not actually sure why it's not there now.

We got married in a gazebo, and I really searched to find a gazebo topper!

Ah, happy 20 anni! =)
Sep. 19th, 2008 03:56 pm (UTC)
How wonderful. And I think it's sweet you took your son! Congrats on 20 years.

The big twenty and so many more to enjoy. Best to you, Lisa
