This summer, July 3rd, Sanj and I will be celebrating 17 years of being married.
That made me think of 3 years from now… our 20th anniversary!
I want a party. It will include a limo, a real wedding/anniversary cake, real invitations and a banquet hall.
What does that have to do with anything? Well, we got married on a really small budget. So these are corners we cut… our invitations were simply on white paper done at the printers, our cake (the wedding cake) was rented and fake, with a sliver to place the knife through, there was no limo (although a sweet friend chauffeured us in his father’s fancy car) and we turned a gym into a reception hall.
Of course, none of those things mattered… then or now. I was so dreamy eyed to be marrying my dream guy. I actually wrote in a journal years earlier to God, if I could have Sanj as my hubby then that would be great.
How much I love this man. I definitely love him a zillion times more now… (now that I have him molded and shaped just as I like him)… lol
I love that we have built this life we have together… every bit of it.
I love that he is in my future when I think of tomorrow… and beyond.
So… a party is what I want…. to celebrate the love we share.
A limo, a cake and invitations… those are things that means … it’s all good.
Then I have this idea… in the summer of that year, July 3, 2014…. well that weekend, which means its July 4-6th… we will invite all those that are loved by us to join us for a party!
Sanj is fully expecting me to renew his “lease” … lol How fun is that? A lease renewal party!
I would love to get all my bridesmaids to come for a girls weekend at a cottage somewhere.
Girlfriends… are you hearing me?
I had 8 bridesmaids… Linda, Ellen, Ziggy, Shirley, Rhonda, Cynthia, Sharon, Dianne… all of whom are in my life in some way today. While a couple are horrible at staying in touch… (Clearing my throat… no names)… they are all in my life. How great is that? How much I love each of them.
Sanj asked why I am planning this now? I love a party! I love having all those I love around me. So… I am planning already. I hope you can come!
Mark your calendars… July 4-6th, 2014
