21st Anniversay

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.

Congrats on your anniversary.

Since reading your post about the washer, the very next day mine went on the fritz. We have no idea what is wrong with it and my husband says we will probably have to load it up and take it to the service repair place. UUUGGGGHHHH!

Love those bushes. They will be so pretty when they get full grown.

It's not how you celebrate, but who you are celebrating with that makes it special. ;o) I think you have a lovely tradition!

Happy Anniversary!

Peace and Laughter,
