It was 39 years ago yesterday that Mary and said "I do". Holy cow! Where did the time go? Honestly it seems like maybe 10-12 years ago.
Anniversaries are different at this stage. The celebratory aspect is nothing like it was on the first, fifth, tenth anniversary. I wanted to do something, something different but struggled with what. And then it hit me - one of the things we use to do back in our dating days to celebrate something was to simply get a garbage pie from Umberto's (amazing! they are still in business) and a couple of root beers. So although we did go out last Sunday for a joint birthday/anniversary dinner, last night we celebrated with a garbage pie and some root beers!
Unfortunately Umberto's is about 500 miles away so instead we got our garbage pie from a local pizzeria - Gordos Pizza. It was really good!
Really, it couldn't be more than 10-12 years ago!
