By The Numbers

1 first kiss (in front of Tiffany's)
2 cats (Slinky and Yoyo, one of whom was named after a toy, and the other after a cello player)
2 apartments (on 78th and 88th)
1 memorable dinner at Le Pré Catelan (with fireworks for a stranger's birthday, and an argument about asparagus)
1 irascible child (the 6 1/2 year old)
1 little house (where we live now)
4 cars (the little Ford, the intrepid Saab, the workhorse Jeep, and Kate)
3 wedding rings (because I "needed" two, one in white gold and one in yellow)

What do these add up to? Our fifteenth wedding anniversary.

[And honey? No crystal, because it just gets broken, and no watches, because the cell phones have obviated them. Rye Playland with you and the girl will be just fine.]

Happy Anniversary!

No cell phone will ever replace my watch for me, so my husband is free to gift away.

I was thinking, "It's been THAT long already?" but then I thought, "They've only been married THAT long?"

Happy 15, and many more.

Happy Anniversary! It will be 15 for us this fall too. Sometimes it feels long, others not so much. Hope you have a GREAT day!

Gwen said...

Anniversaries abound. Hope yours is very happy.

Anna said...

Happy anniversary!

You may be glad to know that I did the math, to make sure your numbers added up. (I like the way you did that.)

I love your comment about the cat names! (And now I'm trying to imagine a cello player named Slinky...)

Good call on the Playland over the crystal. I'm with you on that choice.

Happy anniversary to you and yours!

heidi said...

Happy Anniversary!!! And that first kiss... was there a line preceding it about Breakfast at Tiffany's? That would have worked on me too. xoh

Mazel Tov! But dang, I wanted to be the 15th to congratulate you :P

We had our 16th this year. Though for living together we're on our 21st year. And we've know each other 32 years. Gads, we're OLD!

And it's probably been 32 years or longer since I've been to Rye. My camp used to take us occasionally, and one unforgettable hot 4th of July we went to the fireworks there. Remember it as being pretty chaotic.
