Today is my 20th wedding anniversary. How young do we look? It was a great day though. Everything was perfect. In the top picture we are leaving the church and can you see the relief in my face that I didn’t trip or drop my bouquet which weighed a hundred pounds.  In the bottom picture we are getting onto the trolley to head to our reception which was a blast. So much fun! My dad was cleaning out and found a cancelled check for our reception. He reminded me what a great party it was. I told him to look at like a cost per year like we do with a real expensive pair of shoes, cost per wear; not sure if that helped.

Tonight we are celebrating with dinner at Highlands Bar and Grill, a recent James Beard Foundation Award Finalist, and one of my favorite places. The question becomes what to wear? It needs to be simple, because it is a school night and I would have worked all day. So the outfit I’m leaning towards is a white one shouldered jumpsuit with a strappy sandal which just happens to be my something blue and statement earrings and bracelet. No necklace because the the neck line of the jumpsuit is so pretty.

Here’s to another 20 years babe.
