Twenty years

Jimmy and I marked our twenty year anniversary on October 17th. We decided to have date night on Friday to celebrate.

Of course, Miss Madi was incensed when she discovered that our plans didn't include her. After all, "we've had twenty years together, and she's hasn't had that much time with us."

But after a couple of days to digest our plans, our daughter warmed up to the idea. And surprised us with this sweet gift on our bed.

Her card was so cute. She paper-clipped a dollar bill to help us pay for our dinner.

And then on Friday, she decided to surprise us with an anniversary snack of a green apple, pine nuts, M&M's and a scoop of peanut butter. Her presentation was simply beautiful, just like her.

Our date night was just fabulous. Jimmy and I were able to have some adult time, count all of our blessings, and make plans for our next twenty years.

Thank you, sweet Madi, for making Mommy & Daddy's milestone so extra special!  You are a gem:)

Madi is an amazingly giving child. She is always offering to loan me money if I say I don't have enough to buy something she thinks I should have (like a Barbie something or other).

What a sweet and thoughtful thing Madi orchestrated for you and Jimmy. She is a doll. Happy anniversary - 20 years is a milestone and very few couples reach it - congrats!!!!
