Twenty years ago today, my husband and I had our first date.
We agreed to meet at a local restaurant for a drink and then to go to a movie. Since we had both driven, he asked which car we should take to the movie theater and I suggested his. Lenny was banking on that. When he opened the door for me, there on the passenger seat was a single long stemmed red rose. (Ahhh)
We saw "Home Alone." I don't know what Macaulay Culken is doing tonight but we are going to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of our first date the closest we can.
Unfortunately, the local restaurant - one of my favorites closed a few years ago. It is now a bagel shop. We are going to see Tangled - the 2D version. Somehow I don't think 3D glasses make for a very romantic date. I'm wearing the same color turtleneck and pants - of course the old ones are long gone. Those old black pants shrunk anyway - really, they did :-)
It is another anniversary today, too. Nineteen years ago today, I gave Lenny our first scrapbook. It was about 15 pages of our first year together. There were no fancy papers. I typed all the journaling on plain white computer paper from a dot matrix printer! There were some photos. I suppose I should scan one and share it on the blog but I'm not that brave. Do you really want to see me with my permed hair? Do I really want to compare that unlined face to the one today? Nah.
It's been a wonderful 20 years. Since it was so long until we married, this day was the "anniversary" we celebrated for a long time. I'm giving Lenny a scrapbook today of the last year - mostly. There are still some big events and the month of December incomplete. Still, it is a tradition.
Here is his card. I did an envelope card with all sort so mushy prose inside. I'll just keep that hidden along with those old photos.
Thanks for stopping by today. I'll have a new TIP next week. And later in the week, I have a special Christmas layout to share.
