Several people asked how my husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary. I'm happy to say that this is one occasion that we really did celebrate in a big way! Our marriage has been a journey full of ups and downs, highs and lows. We've persevered through the trials and we are so grateful to have made it to this milestone--so we celebrated!
Besides, I went to Party City recently to pick up a few things, and I noticed that they had a whole section of party goods devoted to 25th anniversaries. I told my husband that any event for which Party City has a dedicated section of merchandise is an event that's worth celebrating.
We went to Paris earlier this month in celebration of this anniversary, but we wanted to do something special on the day. But the day was on a Tuesday, and it just happened to be a day when my husband had to attend a meeting in Chicago. I decided that Anniversary #25 was just too much of a big deal for us not to be together, so I found a cheap airline ticket and flew up to Chicago to join him! I felt very sophisticated, jetting off to join my husband in the big city. Especially fun was going up to the desk at the hotel and saying, "My husband left a key for me."
This was the view from our hotel room:
And guess what? We were on the 25th floor. Room 2502, to be exact. How's that for a 25th anniversary? We had fun walking around the city, and we had a wonderful dinner together. Of course, I had to come home to regular old life the next day, but my day in the city was lots of fun.
So how about you? How do you celebrate special occasions?
