If you follow the traditional wedding anniversary calendar, year the fourth is either flowers and fresh fruit (traditional) or appliances (modern). While I love me a good blender, I asked T if maybe, perhaps, we could early celebrate the anniversary with a Costco* food court stop. Yes, I am that classy.
Laughing, he asked "Is it the hot dog anniversary then?"
I wish. While we did not get the hot dog of my dreams (seriously, we're not going to EAA Oshkoshthis year which usually involves +/- 3 bratwursts over the course of the 10 days, so I tried to rationalize it was really a calorie saving maneuver), we ended up out to dinner and reminiscing about weddings and the last few years of marriage.
I'm so grateful to have a loving husband who plays with me...
Notices when I stumble...
Reaches out for me...
Picks me up when I fall...
Carries me when I'm tired (okay, mostly metaphorically now)...
Holds my hand...
Dances with me...
Flies with me...
And wants to spend happily ever after with me...
Happy Fourth Versary, my love!

* Please note that Costco was not the height of anniversary celebrating. We're flying to Halfmoon Bay this weekend!
