Pretty!

Alan and I had our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary last month. 

I can't say "we celebrated" because we haven't done that yet.  We will, at some point, possibly once we get our heads around the fact that we've been married such an impossibly long time....

Our friends are a little more organized than we are.  Fiona came for dinner last night and brought us this.

Pretty!

Her mother received it as a wedding present in 1928.  It seems far too pretty to hold greasy buttered toast.  So I've put it on my desk to hold invitations.  I love that it's an upside down heart shape - seems perfect for weddings, yes?

Hearts!

Hi Barb

How lovely for you two! Is it actually a toast holder? No matter, your idea is far better!

Enjoy your guy for 25 more!

Thanks for the good wishes!

Yes, we are very lucky to have Fiona in our lives.

Yes, it really is a toast holder.

And yes, I plan to enjoy life with Alan for (at least) twenty five more!
