20th Wedding Anniversary
Traditional Gift: China
Modern Gift: Platinum
Those are good ideas actually. Lots of our dishes have broken by now and we could use some new plates and bowls. As for platinum, pushing away thoughts of jewelry, as a natural element it is malleable, dense, highly unreactive and precious. Those aren’t bad qualities for a marriage that’s lasted this long.
A long marriage has to be able to change over time when needed. It needs to be closely tied together. It should be something that does not easily react to outside influences. And it is certainly something precious.
Happy Anniversary to my husband. So many things have changed since the day of that first picture but one thing remains the same – he’s still the one I want to be with every day and every tomorrow.
