We had an awesome anniversary. I don’t know about other guys, but every year I think, how on earth am I going to top the last year?
This year my goal was to spend no more than ten bucks on the night (I was so tempted to do the fancy dinner thing, but that’d just be too easy, wouldn’t it?)
I told Yvz that we had reservations (it was with the sunset) and we rushed out the door as our friend Gloria babysat.
I was banking on a hotdogs (My wife loves hotdogs oddly) and Ed’s Real Scoop (a popular ice cream shop downtown) to keep it under five bucks each.
I’ve got a bit of a fascination with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so Yvonne made some for me from scratch! Check out how colossal hers were compared to the puny originals!
Earlier in the day I organized a speed-art project where we would both paint something that we loved about the other person.
Amazingly we had very similar concepts, though different ways of expressing it.
Yvonne’s, depicted my ‘fiery’ passion in the darkness, and how it lit up ‘sparks’ in other people. the folks to the right is our family (click for a close up), I love the cute baby Stellar she painted in!
Mine, was a silhouette of my wife and how God so often pierces her heart and brings about life-changing conviction. But it never just stops there. It always erupts out of her soul as she longs to share her passion with others, bringing light to those around her.
We painted them on canvas paper and added them to a new book of memories we’ll be creating together… memories we hope to be celebrating for all eternity.
