Happy Anniversary

Today is our 12th Wedding Anniversary!
It feels like I just met my DH yesterday. Where did the time go ?

My DH wasn't the boy next door, or my school sweetheart; he was my vacation love.I bet you weren't expecting that :-)
I met my DH when I was on vacation in the Dominic Republic. Needless to say it was the best vacation of my life ! We met in the pool, playing water volleyball..we talked, we danced, we fell in love and as fate would have it, we married. We were in love...what else could we do ?

I think the best part is that my DH courted me. He had to, we lived 8,000 miles apart. I lived in the USA and he in Germany. Our courtship happened before emails, SMS and all the hightech stuff was popular.
We wrote letters, sent cards, little gifts and telephoned till late in the night. He flew to me, I flew to him and then finally we decide that I would move to Germany and see what happened. Eight months later we were married.( no I wasn't pregnant ..LOL)
This goes to show that vacation romances can work...all you need is cupid sitting on your shoulder and I have been holding his little feet since.

Since the 12 Anniversary really isn't a big one...not gold, silver or diamonds :-) I decided to look up what the traditional gifts are.

The Traditional gifts are : Silk or Linen....doesn't sound bad

The Modern gifts are: Pearls, Mother-of-Pearl or trip to this sounds much better !
Dear Honey...if you are reading know pearls are my favorite but how about getting pearls in Japan ?? Now that would be an Anniversary gift !!
I Love You !

Happy Anniversary Honey !

P.S. I want to thank everyone for the get well wishes, I think they helped!
I feel better today...unfortunately I am still sick but at least not dieing anymore ...LOL
I am going to try and take a shower and make myself look not like "a truck ran me over".
I should also get dressed...A girl can't spend her whole Anniversary in bed ...or can she ?? ;-))
