At 6:30 p.m. tonight we reached the milestone of 21 years of marriage. That just sounds old. To celebrate we got a Common Purple Lilac to put in our front yard. We buy them every now and then on special occasions. Our goal is to get a line of them in the front of the yard by the road to act as a privacy fence. Here we are in front of our new little lilac. It looked so big in the pot and so small in the ground.
It has been a couple years since we had gotten a new one. We thought the old ones were still tiny but in comparison the old one are huge. They are all spreading out nicely too.
To further celebrate our anniversary we went to Old Chicago for dinner and then to Sears to buy a new clothes washer. That is about as exciting of celebrating we do around here.
