So, today would have been our 25th wedding anniversary.

Hubby was always excited about making it to this milestone. He talked about it a lot.
When he was in high school, his parents celebrated their 25th anniversary and he and his older brothers threw them a huge party. And gave them an engraved silver something or other.

He always told our kids that they would be throwing a party for us on our 25th too.
-Then at some point he decided that he was perfectly open to the idea of them sending us on a cruise instead. ; )

They were pretty young when this discussion first started coming up around the dinner table. The oldest boys would shrug their shoulders and say "OK, Dad."
 "If we have any money by then." LOL
It all sounded pretty daunting to a bunch of kiddos who didn't even receive an allowance. ; )

I'm not exactly sure what I'll do today. But I did take the day off  from work, just in case, I'm a hot mess! I think that was a good call.
