25th Wedding Anniversary

On Wednesday, Dale and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary!

We celebrated simply. I cooked a meal for him of crock pot Hawaiian chicken, rice pilaf, sauteed vegetables, and some sparkling cider. (I used chicken thighs because they are more flavorful than breasts). Then I set the table with linens, stemware, candles, and silver decorations.

I made a miniature 3-layer white cake, too! I decorated it with with silver ribbons, white ribbon flowers, and silver beads. It mimicked our wedding cake in that we had flowers and pearl beads around the edges of our cake 25 years ago.

When Dale got home, he gave me a box of my favorite chocolates and these 25 beautiful long-stemmed red roses!

For Dale, I found a frame for his abstract art painting, a couple silver ties, and a personalized tie tack. After dinner, we did one of our favorite activities - a ride in the convertible. It was such a lovely evening! I am so very grateful for our living, breathing, happy marriage.
