Life with Virginia has always been one surprise after another, and the last couple of days have been no exception. On Wednesday a lady dropped by my office with a huge vase of long-stemmed red roses, and yesterday, another lady walked in with a big basket of chocolates and a mylar balloon bouncing around. A friend had just stopped by to see me and she laughed in delight at this second delivery. Early yesterday morning Virginia and I traded gifts and cards in our pajamas before our respective days started.
To celebrate our fourth anniversary I suggested we take a picnic dinner to our wedding park and the very pavilion deep in the woods where we held our joining and picnic celebration four years ago. This park is a special place, and coming to this peaceful spot always gives me comfort. We had a wonderful, quiet picnic in the filtered light of the trees, and we talked about nothing and everything bundled a bit from the chill.
There is more celebrating to come and life is good, with more adventures around each corner.
