10 years

On Thursday my Mother-in-Law called and left a message.  In the message she talked about our anniversary on Saturday and what were we going to do and where were we going to celebrate?  We had totally forgotten it was our anniversary and so it was great to have a reminder. 

Yesterday afternoon we went to help a neighbor with their dog and as we were getting ready to leave the neighbor generously offered to watch our kids for a couple of hours since the kids were playing and didn't want to leave.  So we left and went home without the kids and spent a couple of hours of peace and quiet.  It was like recharging the batteries, it was exactly what we needed.

Another set of neighbors generously offered order pizza and put on a movie and take our kids in the evening so we could enjoy a dinner out.  And then they gave us the directions to a fabulous Thai restaurant we had never tried and so we went there and had spicy everything. 

For a couple that had no plans we ended up having a wonderful day.  And that is just how you should spend your 10 year anniversary.  

It was a very spontaneous day with wonderful gifts from new friends.
