15 Years

Today we celebrated 15 years of married life.

For the first time in years we sat down and watched our wedding video. The boys had never seen it before and were quite entertained! It was so funny to see all the people at our wedding who we hadn't even remembered were there. And it was also quite sad to see how many of our older relations have passed away since then too.

I made up this slate plaque as a gift for my hubs, although it is really for both of us.

I bought the blank slate in Hobbycraft as well as some rub off letters. I was a little unsure how the letters would work as the surface of the slate was uneven but the rubbed off pretty well and I'm quite pleased with it.

Now that I think of it, a blank slate is quite a symbolic thing for a wedding/anniversary gift!

We didn't do anything fancy to celebrate. We will have our proper celebration on another night.

We did make up some kid friendly cocktails with fun umbrellas to have with our dinner though.

As for the little man's arm. Well he's getting quite used to his cast now. The new cast gives a bit more freedom to his fingers, which he is much happier about. He can't use his right arm for eating yet but he can carry a super hero in his hand and that's what's important!


  1. Congratulations on your 15 years. I love the plaque. It is a great idea; It would make a wonderful gift for a wedding or anniversary, as you said.
    I just scrolled down to read what happened to Alasdair. Aw, poor boy. He is so precious. Love his cute smile, and I am glad that he is doing a little better in the new cast. I could completely relate to the Curious George comment, because our grandkids have watched that one over many times, as well, and it helped them when Steve broke his leg and arm. Hope you have a wonderful 15th year celebration.
    Love and Blessings,

  2. Happy anniversary!

    So sorry about little man's arm. Love his little spiderman outfit. Too cute!


I love reading everyone's comments, so thank-you for taking the time to leave them! I try and respond to them here too, so do check back later on.
