18 Years and Five Tiffany Pendants Later


Yes folks, the preceding title is a direct quote from the gift card coupled with the lovely necklace that my husband gave me for our 18th anniversary this morning.

I have been with Brian for twenty years. Jesus Christ. I can't believe I've done ANYTHING that long besides breathe.

And yet here we are. Together on this lifelong Outward Bound Trip along with our trusty dog and ten year old son.

Love. Loyalty. Possibility. Compromise. Laughter. The ability to bite your tongue without completely severing it from your mouth. That's what makes a marriage....at least mine.

18 is a lucky number in the Jewish tradition. God knows we've earned it! Cheers.

Cheers! May the saddest day of your future be no worse
Than the happiest day of your past.

Congrats! I'm sure there have been great times and not-so great times. I bet those gifties from Tiffany didn't hurt.

Mazel Tov. Tiffany is a very fine gift to receive. I love Ellesu's sentiments. I never heard that one before.

Wishing you many more years and Tiffany gifts ;)
