20th Anniversary

Happy 20th Anniversary to my husband Michael!

Us 20 years ago. May 5, 1990. Senior Prom. Second Date.
The traditional gift for 20th anniversary is platinum.
I have a 10kt gold band that looks like this lovely beveled platinum band, I wonder if Michael would replace mine with this one. ;-)

Us today - well, actually yesterday - June 10, 2010

Our dog Mocha wanted to get into the picture! :-)
And she deserves it!! She's recovered so well from her recent surgery.

Though we are celebrating 20 years together, we've only been married for 14 years. We celebrated that anniversary this past February. Traditionally ivory was the gift for the 14th anniversary, but the modern alternative is gold. (However, I don't think I'll be getting a gift featuring either of those!) This necklace would be a lovely option though!!

I'm told we are going out for Japanese dinner tonight for our anniversary.
So my plate will look something like this below...
except more sashimi know, not being made of fabric. ;-)

  1. Congrats Stephanie and Michael! Looks how cute and 80s you still looked at prom - how was that only your 2nd date?!?!?!?!?
    And if you want that necklace, my dear - it yours!

  2. You are so sweet Alex! I'd definitely be interested in a trade for it - I'll send you an email tomorrow so we can work out details. Thank you!! lol Actually the prom could well have been our first date - asking Michael to go with me was a suggestion from a mutual friend of ours, and it wasn't necessarily supposed to turn into 20 years (or more)!
