Meant To Be Together

My friend had asked me if I had any plans for Valentine’s Day.  I replied that I have a yoga class that evening so we wouldn’t be going out and asked her about her plans, she explained that it was her wedding anniversary a couple of days ago which reminded her of a funny story. She had went to the store to buy her husband an anniversary card. A couple of days later she went to look for the card, but did not find it in her usual “card hiding spot”. While she was doing something else she happened to look up and see the card on the bookshelf. So she took it off the shelf and signed it. Later that day she was out and her husband texted her and asked her if she had taken the card that was on the bookshelf and she said yes. She had actually forgotten that when she was at the store she didn’t end up buying the card she had picked out. But the card her husband had purchased for her was the same card. So she had thought she had bought it and put in on the bookshelf – although that was not her usually hiding place.  She ended up giving him the card he bought her!

I thought that was so funny for so many reasons. I know that I have looked at cards and thought I had purchased them only to find out I hadn’t. I sometimes buy cards and misplace them. I know that multiple times my husband and I have purchased the same card and given it to each other twice. In some cases the sentiment was the same but the card maker had added a different picture. I am not sure if we have purchased the same card for each other, but I think we might have. But I know we have not used one another purchased cards. HA! So funny.

Do you have any funny card giving or receiving stories?

Anniversary Flowers

Posted by terrepruitt on March 30, 2018

We didn’t really have a moment to celebrate.  We exchanged cards and I got flowers.  I’m a lucky girl!

I am sharing my anniversary flowers as a Friday Photo.

First Day Of Spring

Posted by terrepruitt on March 21, 2013

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia at the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, ZumbaSo today marks fifteen years that my hubby and I have been married.  It does not feel like it has been fifteen years, but then again, what does that feel like, right?  I mean I know I have been waiting in line for something and if you ask I would say I have been waiting for months.  🙂  Time is an odd thing because if you ask me if it “seems” like it has been FIFTEEN YEARS, I’d say, “No.”

We have know each other eighteen years as you might have read about in my Day Ten Of Month Of Planking, First Day Of Nineteenth Year post.  We have been married for fifteen years.  It was my ideal to be married on the first day of spring.  And honestly looking at calendars back then there seemed to be different ideas of whether the first day of spring was March 20th or March 21st.

I had always believed it was March 21st so that was the day that I thought would be nice to get married.  It so happened that March 21st was on a Saturday in the year 1998 . . . . so that is when we got married.

The first day of spring is like an announcement of new beginnings.  New life begins.  New things happen.  Flowers bloom.  It’s all new.  I think it is fitting and romantic to be married on the first day of spring.  Even though we had been together for three years, our wedding was the start of a new life for us.  A life for us together.

I wasn’t nervous, because I had no doubt.  I was impatient.  We had created a very short ceremony where the minister only talked for about ten minutes.  There was no singing, no reading, nothing.  It was scheduled to last about 20 minutes.  Now, if you ask me how long it felt, I might reply fifteen years.  I swear the minister sounded like all the adults on Peanuts and he could not be done fast enough.  When he had John’s ring in his hand I kept reaching for it.  I mean, he was just talking jibberish anyway.  All I was thinking was, “Let’s get this marriage started!!”  And I was shocked out of my revery when my husband-to-be playfully smacked my hand after my third grab.  Yeah, the whole ceremony was wiggles and giggles.

To my Honey:

Thank you very much for all the wonderful times we have had.  I appreciate all you do for us.  I look forward to the next fifteen (and hopefully a lot more) years with you.  Thank you.  Happy Anniversary.

Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you very much for reading this post.  I know I don’t always stay on track EXACTLY, but many of you know that a happy healthy relationship is key to well-being.  Now, I am not saying that a relationship is a steady ride, there are ups and downs, but getting through them is what helps with the “well-being”.  Also, I am not saying that one needs to be in a relationship in order to well, but I am saying that when there are relationships and they are happy and healthy that adds to someone’s well-being.
