25 yrs ago today, my husband and I had our first date! Sometimes it seems like yesterday and then other times when I think back on our life together it feels like we've been together always. Our life together has been VERY full, lots of twists and turns with not one moment of boredom or regret involved! We have weathered the years together quite well.Some folks think we're a little silly because we celebrate our dating anniversary every year just as we celebrate our wedding anniversary.But our first date is very significant, otherwise there would be no wedding! Am I right?
So we celebrate and this year being our 'silver' anniversary (of dating) we're pretty excited about going out and having a very romantic dinner. Our 25th wedding anniversary is still 3 years away, so I'm thinking something REALLY BIG for that one.
In the meantime, dinner at an Italian restaurant tonight. After reading Eat, Pray, Love I'm very much in the mood for a great Italian meal. I'll let you know how it goes in a later post.
For now... today's tag commemorating our 25 years together!
My friends Terri & Marsha are so good about posting where their images came from.
I'm not too good at that because a lot of my images are from magazines, catalogs,
junk mail,etc.I do know where today's image came from-Artitudezine. A fabulous magazine that isn't being published right now. They used to include a full page of images on the back cover. So that's where this came from.
The text at the bottom is from a fortune cookie, as was yesterday's text on the tag.
Below is a doodle that I started last night during commercials while watching Project Runway. I was a bit disappointed in the All Star Challenge as far as the winner goes. The competition was good though. The season premiere of the show was a little lackluster, or maybe I was just so pumped about watching that I had envisioned great things on the very first show of the season since it's been GONE so long. Anyway, I'm sure that things will heat up during the rest of the season and be the spectacular show that I remember!
I have been doodling for a couple years now and keep saying that I'm going to 'DO
Something' with them. Like color it in, or scan and print on a transparency or fabric, or enlarge it and paint in the shapes. ???? So many possibilities yet I haven't done a thing with any of them. So I did this one in my art journal prompting me to actually do more with it. I'll let you know how it turns out or WHAT it turns into.
Have a fantastic weekend~
