MMM: A Chance To Play
"Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars." A chance to play... this is what my husband gave me for our 28th anniversary this past weekend. When I gave him this anniversary card Friday morning, he told me to pack a suitcase. He had secretly planned a trip Charleston, South Carolina, a weekend of crepe myrtles, cobblestones, carriages, salty breezes, the beach at sunrise. We spent two lovely days looking into courtyard gardens, visiting art galleries, eating boiled shrimp on the pier, and listening to music at night on a rooftop bar. I have no idea how he managed to keep all this a secret, but it was the best anniversary ever. I am so thankful I married this man. After 28 years, now more than ever, he's still the other half of me.
