53rd Wedding Anniversary

Fifty-three years ago today I married my highschool sweetheart. Three children [plus spouses], eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren later, I'm feeling blessed beyond measure! 

They say after you've been married for many years you begin to think alike.  I guess that's true because when Jerry and I opened our anniversary cards to each other this morning they were identical.  ;-)

Beautiful flowers arrived from my hubby.

Our son, Steve, called early this morning to wish us Happy Anniversary and to ask about taking us to breakfast.  I have to work today so we'll have to take a rain check, but it was a thoughtful offer.  Jerry's made dinner reservations for after I get off work - P.F. Chang's one of my favorite places!  I'll definitely be having their white tangerine tea.

We celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary in Boston and New York City.  Below is a pic of us taking Afternoon Tea at the Plaza Hotel.  Fond memories!

More later...

Well, I thought we were going to P.F. Chang's for dinner, but Jerry just said that so I wouldn't know where he really made reservations - Andiamo's.

Our knowledgeable and attentive server was Shayma.  Isn't she pretty?

Our appetizer course was marinated, char-grilled Portabella mushrooms in zip sauce.

Jerry and I each got a salad instead of soup, but I forgot to take a picture.  Next was the pasta course.

Jerry ordered Chicken Parmigiano-Reggiano for his main entree and I ordered Chicken Marsala. I'm usually a 'clean plate' gal, but I had to get a carry-out tonight.  Too much yummy food for one meal.

We did manage to save room to share a piece of Tiramisu though.

It's been a great day, and now we begin pursuing Anniversary #54.  God is good!


  1. Happy Anniversary! I love that you got each other the same card. Enjoy your anniversary dinner this evening.

  2. Oh, Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby! What a lovely picture of you both! I had to giggle to see both cards alike; so cute! Hubby and I find we know what we're each going to say before we say it. We have been known to finish each other's sentences too. Married life; there's nothing like it especially when God is the center of it! Have a beautiful day, Phyllis, and Congratulations to you both!

  3. Happy Anniversary! How sweet you both had the same card. This happened to us at a retirement party. Both of her daughter in laws bought the same card, too. We say "great minds think alike" Again, Happy Anniversary.

  4. Wishing you and your husband a Happy Anniversary. May you have many years of love and happiness. God Bless.
