He's a Keeper

Twenty five years is a long time. There are lots of memories made, inside jokes, and any number of stories---good, bad, and ugly. I decided to make a photo book of our years together. Brian, however, out-creatived me.

First he made a reservation at a new restaurant in East Cobb. He secured the chef's table and made sure they knew it was a special anniversary.

Then he presented me with a pillar candle holder filled with frosted marbles and dark chocolate kisses. That was good, but THEN...

 Mixed in the kisses were 25 strips of silver cardstock, each printed with a memory, an inside joke, or just something he thinks about when he considers our marriage.

Husbands, take note. MAJOR props. EPIC win.

 The restaurant provided two delightful desserts: a maple pote de creme with cinnamon biscotti and a pineapple upside-down cake with macadamia nut ice cream and nut brittle. Both were served with a fabulous sweet dessert wine with hints of honey.
We finished the evening at rehearsal for the Georgia Symphony Orchestra Chorus. We took a cake and some of our original wedding napkins to share. Everyone enjoyed celebrating with us.

On to the next 25. Brian has that long to top his ultra-creative silver anniversary gift!
