Thirty-nine years. That’s the amount of time I have invested in Ed. Yes, we celebrated our anniversary last week by going out to a nice dinner in Denton. He had planned this but wouldn’t tell me where we were going; only that he was going to wear a suit. Hmmm. There are NOT a lot of places to eat in Denton where you are obligated to wear a suit so I couldn’t imagine where he had reservations, especially since it was only about a 15-minute drive from our house.
He took me to a new place, at least to us: the Wildwood Inn. This is a local Bed & Breakfast that is also a restaurant and is available for weddings. We couldn’t see it since it was dark when we were there, but their garden is supposed to be beautiful. Our friend Robin got married in their garden and loved it. Ed had told her where we were going and told her we would be thinking of her during dinner. We not only thought of her but drank a toast to her.
Thirty-nine years. Where did the time go? In one respect, it seems like just yesterday. On the other hand, when you stop to think about all that has happened, it seems a lifetime ago. So where did the time go? It’s been stored in my heart.
Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart!
