25th Anniversary Gemstone -- Silver is the metal most noted for the twenty-fifth anniversary due to its radiance and brilliance.
Yesterday was our 25th anniversary. Feels like we've been married forever. We had a fun dinner as Sisilia and Brit joined us after Sione's work. We decided that Chilli's will do as we had one vehicle to pick up Mo from practice and drop off Brit afterwards. Started with dessert, then appetizer and then the main dish. I was already full by that time.
That daughter of mine sure know how to light up a party. After we ate she wanted to play the "Newly Wed game". Her and Brit looked up these questions to ask us. "This will show how much you guys still love each others". All the while giggling and excited.
There were 10 questions all together. 5 for me and 5 for Sione. We ended up tied for 1 out of 5 each.
"How many boyfriends did mom have before she dated you?"
"What quality does mom admire most about you?"
"Where was you first kiss?"
"What do you do that mom hates the most?"
"Where's a vacation place you would love to go that she would hate for you to go to?"
"What's the first movie you watched together on your first date?"
The final questoin she asked with enthusiasm. "If you guys get this right, it'll show that you guys still love each other".
"Who's the brainier of you two". Of course we both agreed on that answer. It was
was "moier". She squeals and delivered, "Haha you guys still love each other." I just looked at her and smiled. I was glad they came along spicing up our anniversary dinner. We ended up spending more then I wanted to spend but it was definitely worth it. After 25 years of marriage, we deserve a little craziness. Reminded me on our honeymoon dinner. We spend almost $200 or over that for a lobsters dinner. Ridiculous but we didn't know it after we were done eating.
After 25 years of marriage I still have so much more to learn about being a good wife, mother and being an overall good woman. So much refinement still needs to be made but I'm still working on them. A good marriage requires hard work and a lot of nourishment to the square. Mentally, Physically, Emotionally and Spiritually. Willingly of course.
