Twenty-six years ago we said, “I do.”
Today we celebrate the ups and downs, highs and lows, surprises and longtime dreams that comprise a marriage.
We celebrate the commitment and the faith that are our foundation. We celebrate each other.
No big plans this year. Our June calendar is packed full of travel and responsibilities, so today we’ll take it easy. Steaks on the grill, baked potatoes, fresh asparagus, and apple pie.
But I’ve set a Table for Two in preparation for our quiet evening at home. The inspiration was this gorgeous china Renaissance Man gave me for our 20th anniversary.
And then I added the salt and pepper shakers his grandparents received on their 50th wedding anniversary oh-s0-many years ago.
And the crystal stemware my parents gave us for Christmas in the early ’90s. They celebrated 55 years of marriage this year!
And the sterling flatware we picked up along the way.
I couldn’t resist adding this old sugar bowl with its sweet love birds motif.
I must say I don’t do this enough—setting a pretty table for just the two of us . . . But today I did. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing it.
How often do you set a Table for Two?
