last Thursday, DH and I were married in the apartment we were living in in London Ontario. Two close friends were our witnesses, as was our cat, as the Justice of the Peace conducted the ceremony and we spoke the vows we had written. I remember that day as being one of the three happiest of my life – the other two were the days I gave birth to our two children. Thirteen years, 4 moves, some illness, a little heart ache, and lots of laughter later, here we are, still together, still trying every day to be kind to each other and to make life just a little easier.
The traditional gift for the 13th anniversary is lace. DH is a very smart man, and agreed that lace weight yarn qualifies! So I steered him toward Yarn Chef on Etsy, and he purchased Twinkle – and aren’t those skeins just gorgeous? He also bought 3 waterlily silks, and lots of wonderful dark Callebaut chocolate. I think I am well and truly spoiled 🙂
In turn, I bought him a golf magazine and stretched the definition of lace a bit and made him a pair of felted slippers. I always think the before and after felting pics are a hoot!
Along with a homemade cake and take out Chinese…… I could not have asked for more. I look forward to the next 13 years!
