Yeah, that's Tim and I. Not our most flattering photo ever, but still, it's us! Yesterday was our 29th anniversary! Woohoo!
Some years we celebrate big. Other's years, not so big. This year, very very small. But as long as it's still us and we are together and happy, it makes no difference to us. Honestly. We made no plans ahead of time so when it turned out to be a weekend where Tim had to work through it (not on the project room this time, actual work-work) it changed no plans at all.
Poor thing was nose to the grindstone all day and well in to the night on Saturday but on Sunday afternoon, he stepped away for jus t a little bit. And we went to the jetty because it's a beautiful, healing place and then just spent time walking around, breathing the sea air and watching the birds and the sun sparkle on the water. It was exactly perfect.
Although the sun was shining brightly, it was also rather breezy and a wee bit chilly but we didn't mind. There is something about crisp air that feels cleaner and brighter and while we live in a place that normally has warm weather, it's nice to have the reminder once in awhile of cooler temps and other places we have lived.
When I looked through my photos this morning I was laughing when I noticed that there was one thing every bird I snapped had in common. I caught them all scratching itches. Must have been an itchy sort of day for birds. heehee
A little bit of time at the water's edge is good for the soul and it was really good for both of us.
It was just a nice little break in a work weekend, but it was exactly perfect for us.
I made an absolutely terrible chicken cacciatore for our Anniversary Dinner (I don't know why it came out so badly. I've made it a zillion times before when it turned out perfectly) but it doesn't matter because we are already laughing about how bad it was. And we treated ourselves to ice cream for dessert. (Ben & Jerry's was on sale this week BOGO!)
Happy Anniversary to us :)
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
