Twenty Six Years

Can you believe it’s already May? Man, the years are just slipping by. They say “time goes by fast when your having fun”.
Well, May 1st we celebrated our 26th year anniversary. It has been fun. 

We got married 26 years ago at 1:00 on a Sunday, right after church service in front of about 50 friends and family. It was nothing fancy and everything sweet. It was followed by dinner with close friends and family. My Mom made my dress and the wedding cake. It was all so pretty.
It was a sweet wedding and we have been best friends ever since. 

We had plans to visit a swanky little place here in town for dinner, but with the whole stay at home order, we had to resort to another way to celebrate our anniversary. Nick headed out to the grocery store to scoop up a couple steaks and baking potatoes to put on the grill. 

We finished our daily routines early and headed to the shower. I spent some time fixing my hair and applied a little makeup. Then I slipped into a my red dress and headed to the kitchen. Nick came in smelling fresh and had put on a button up shirt and khaki pants. We were ready for our anniversary date. 

We sat close at the table while we enjoyed our meal and had some laughs. After dinner we asked Alexa (virtual assistant) to play some slow dance music and we danced in the living room. One thing led to another and before we knew it, the night turned late and the day had ended. It was a great day and one of the best dinner dates we had in a long time. 

Now I am ready to tackle everything else May has to offer. It is full of family birthdays including mine! 
I will be 51 years old on the 16th. Wowzah! 

We always said we want to grow old together. Well, here we are living the dream.
