I Married A Younger Man...
What Makes YOU Do This?

A Heart Felt Thank You!

MyrosesThank you for the overwhelming response to our 25th Anniversary!  You are all so wonderful and I'm thrilled to be a part of this community. Yesterday morning there was a card waiting for me in the kitchen.  Smith said in the card that it didn't feel like 25 years, it felt like it had only been 'an afternoon'.  (sob, awww)  Our first date was brunch, followed by an afternoon of walking and talking.  His note brought back that beautiful memory.  Even more wonderful, later that day 25 red roses arrived at my office!  He has always brought  flowers on our anniversary, but this was so sweet and special.  Be still my heart.

BoulevardWe had a lovely dinner at one of SLCs newest and nicest restaurants.  Each year my needlepoint students give me a gift certificate to a nice place and we use it on our special day.  "The Boulevard" is elegant and romantic, which fit the bill perfectly.  It was a lovely evening walking down memory lane and planning for the next 25 years.

And just for Donna, Smith had Lobster Salad and Beef Medalions (melt in your mouth) with yummy sauces (can't remember what they were) and I had Ginger Squash Soup, followed by a very rich and lovely Wild Mushroom Ravioli (hand cut).  Of course we had wine but, alas there was no room for dessert!  Next time.

SockpalredThe Sockapalooza sock is coming along nicely.  The yarn has the most wonderful shades of red. It lives up to the name, Salsa as it looks like roasted tomatoes, red peppers with a little red onion thrown in.  It's Twinkletoes from Ebay and it looks like it will wear well.  It sure knits up nicely! The pattern is Latvian Lace from Folk Socks by Nancy Bush, which has also been great to knit.  The repeat is easy to learn and the sock looks fab.  This will be on my list of socks to knit for myself.   


The socks look amazing, the color is divine. I'm so glad you had a great day for your anniversary.

Glad you and Smith had such a special day!
The sock looks beautiful. The yarn is such a great color!

Reading about your delicious anniversary dinner has me drooling over my keyboard! Yum! What a very special day of celebration. And the salsa socks are sassy and fun! =)
