Twenty Five years ago last Monday I married my best friend, sweetheart, love of my life, my husband Joe. The best man anyone could hope for. I knew it then and I still know it today. Normally we will take off for the weekend for a romantic get away. We celebrated a bit differently this year because I had a work commitment Sunday. Saturday afternoon I knew Joe was up to something, carrying things to the back of our property through the woods. Hmmmm....
I followed the trail through the woods as the sun began to set.
Torchlight lit my way as the woods darkened.
I came upon a table set in a clearing with candlelight and cocktails.
The sun was breathtaking as it set beyond the trees.
Our little getaway. A home away from home on a cool September evening. Far enough from our real home to be out of sight, as if we were miles away.
Cozy and quiet. Our own little woodland getaway. We spent our honeymoon on Maui but this was just as romantic. 25 years worth of romance from my darling hubs.
Morning dawned bright and sunny and we returned to the "real world".
Back home through the woods.
Bye bye little get away. Actually it was so much fun we made a reservation for Sunday
Crisp September mornings are so refreshing.
Back home on Monday, our actual anniversary, to another wonderful surprise.
Across the river with our family. Sweet hubs treated me, our daughter and son, and son's girlfriend, to dinner at Chart House. Set on the Ohio overlooking the river and the Cincinnati skyline.
How sweet is this?
We enjoyed appetizers through dessert and champagne. A marvelous evening with those we love.
The weekend was heavenly. I couldn't have asked for a better 25th!
Happy Anniversary Joe, Love always, Pam.
Hope your weekend is lovely, P.
