Gift: 25 Years


What exactly do you do to celebrate 25 years of marriage? The world wide web is so helpful (sarcasm). The suggestion is to give some silver. Boring.

I saw an idea on this blog for a birthday gift, and my siblings and I adapted it to be an anniversary gift.

I made a banner for them to put up on day 1, since I knew seeing 25 envelopes just sitting there would be a big temptation.

I was quite pleased with the variety of submissions.  My sister made some very heartfelt videos, which inspired me to make one that was not exactly heartfelt:

I sent the package to arrive just in time for the anniversary.  My Mom’s neighbor is a little boy, and the day before the anniversary he came to their door with a package: “Mrs. Anderson, I saw this package at 1234 Madison where I was playing, but it says 1234 State St. and YOUR name…so I brought it to you.”

I personally thought it was a miracle that he found it and got it to the correct recipient. I would have had a heart attack if it had never arrived.  Happy Anniversary to my parents! 25 Years!  If that’s not love….what is?
