Happy Anniversary

He still brings me roses
 21 years....where does the time go? Building a life together has been such satisfying labor.....a labor of love....challenging and inspirational.....tough and easy.....a daily comfort of relying on a partner who considers the effects of their actions on the others in the nest.....the little chickadees we are raising who are learning how to fly that nest.....and of course, the nest itself....building it with much care for each other.

Dinner for two at Taylor's Kitchen....the best restaurant in Sacramento....IMHO....I had the Lamb with the white bean ragout, asparagus and roasted tomatoes with Olive Salsa Verde....Heaven on Earth.
 A dinner out together.....

Tim had Pasta Dave's Artichoke and Marscarpone Agnolotti, Fricassee  of Spring Vegetables....four stars.
Dessert? Strawberry Shortcake with Tarragon Ice Cream.....sigh...perfection.
 Just us two....how we started....where we will be soon enough....a reconnection.

We do still look into each other's eyes.....the crow's feet telling the story of our life together.

A Happy Anniversary

Congratulations and a most happy anniversary. I'd stay and tell you more about how much I enjoyed this story of your day, but my own labor of love is frying chicken for me and I have to go make sure he doesn't set something important on fire.. like himself. You and I, Katiedid, are quite lucky women.
