With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Celebrating Thirty-five Years

Celebrating Thirty-five Years

 with the love of my life...
Monday is our anniversary and we had thought and thought of how we might set aside some time to celebrate a long weekend together. We considered going to New York City or Washington, DC but decided to stay close to home and go into Philadelphia.  Growing up in South Jersey we have both been to Philadelphia thousands of times but it still is an interesting place to visit.  Wanting to have some fun with a light purse, we are planning to head to the city but return home at night.  We have NO agenda (kinda scary) and will just see where the days leads us.


The weather is supposed to be perfect autumn days ... chilly, windy and sunny.
Tomorrow we will begin by hitting some garage sales (didn't want to miss this because in  a few more weeks they will be over until spring).
Then by one o'clock we promised we would be dressed and ready to hit the town.

We are thinking maybe Center City, Rittenhouse Square, The Italian Market...
Any bloggers with suggestions?

Sunday we will be heading back.
Boathouse Row, Art Museum?
How does a muffin and coffee at a sidewalk cafe' sound?

John is taking off work on Monday and I have rearranged my child care schedule.
Hoping to come up with a special way to spend the day.
I know there is no one I would rather be spending it with!

Happy Anniversary! My husband and I enjoy "agenda-less" vacations, too. Seems we end up seeing things/enjoying experiences we would have missed had we made prior plans.

Ann said...

Happy Anniversary. I think your plans for celebrating sound perfect. No agenda makes for a carefree kind of day.

Happy Anniversary! I love a day with no agenda myself! Who knows what fun you can find when/where you aren't looking for it? We celebrated 35 years in August too. Seems like a lifetime ago, doesn't it? Hugs- Diana

Happy, happy anniversary and many more! I'm a big fan of Philadelphia. I like the Art museum, Rittenhouse Sq. and the Italian Market. Have lots of happy memories from lots of visits there.

Happy Anniversary! I love the spontaneity of an unplanned day! Could be a suprise for you both!
Your veil in your wedding picture looks very similar to the one I wore 38 years ago!
Again, congratulations!

Valerie said...

A very happy anniversary is wished to you both. Quite an accomplishment in this day and age - and certainly a glimpse into the commitment and relationship that you have with one another and to God.

Love the mosaic and the scrabble pic's! Very creative! Congratulations!

Happy anniversary to you and your hubby! What a great accomplishment - years of memories and love to reflect on and enjoy together. We love time together with no agenda, too. We will celebrate thirty nine years in January. Enjoy every minute of your time together.

Happy Anniversary! I'm sure it will be a wonderful day to remember. I once knew a young teen-aged couple who would celebrate by splitting a bag of M&M's!"One for you...one for me". The called it a "party in a bag"!

Julie said...

Happy Anniversary! Sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate. I will look forward to seeing some pictures!
