... So, now that I am caught up with my Project 365 postings, I have 3 daily photos for you...
First... my anniversary gift from Jeff. Now, we usually don't do very much at all for our anniversary... let's see... the day of our first anniversary we moved into our house (I bought a CD of our first dance..."When a Man Loves A Woman" and we danced to it on the boom box, amongst all the boxes... after the kids were asleep... and had a glass of sparkling apple cider.) Year 2... Jeff adopted Jessica and Chris... Year 3... Anna was born... Year 4... Jeff finished chemo... Year 5... We went on a HUGE family cruise to the Caribbean with Mom and Dad and Kyle... Year 8... I "kidnapped" Jeff from work and took him to a local resort for the night... and here we are at Year 9. OK... really... life is so busy and full of excitement for us, that we have been "celebrating our lives" around each anniversary... and only celebrated ourselves a few times.
This year (year 9), Anna planned (for over a week) that we were going to have a family movie cuddle night for "our" anniversary! Jeff got me a present (which he wasn't supposed to do)... he read that the traditional gift for 9 years is "pottery"... so he bought me a blue and brown pot (two of my favorite colors) with a plant in it... he said the blue in the pot reminded him of my eyes and the plant represented my LOVE of plants with BIG LEAVES! He NAILED it! My love (fascination) of big leaves started on our honeymoon... specifically when we were in the jungle of the Dominican Republic and the leaves from the trees were SEVERAL FEET ACROSS... at a minimum!!! We had a PJ family night with Anna... meatloaf for dinner (Jeff's favorite)... it was a GREAT night!
Here we go... THE WEEK OF SAKURA will be starting shortly!!! You are NOT going to believe the product line that I have been playing with... I will give you my opinions of their products, samples, and a RAK, so DON'T GO ANYWHERE!!! It is going to be a GREAT CHA WEEK here... see you shortly!
