How Sweet It Is!

Today, I got a wonderful card and package in the mail!

Bill (from Comments on the events of my life ) and his darling wife Libby sent me the perfect coffee cup!

Now, I just don't know how they knew I like coffee and have the nickname Princess, do you????  LOL

Needless to say, I will be enjoying big cups of the 'Elixir of Life' in my new mug and thinking of my two sweet friends in Las Vegas while I do so! 

You see, Bill and Libby are NJ transplants, and we really get each other!!!  Of course, I think they are insane to live in a desert, and forsake the snow, but I love them anyway!

Thanks again, guys!  You made my day!!!

                 

The kids gave my mom a gift certificate for three manicures at her favorite salon, one from each of them, for her birthday today!  Then, we dined at Houlihan's, and it was yummy! 

As I said, November is a big month for us, and tomorrow, which is now today, 11/9 is my wedding anniversary!  Yes, Hubby and I are celebrating 16 years of marital (ahem) bliss!!! 

I have said it before, I am very lucky to have found my soul mate, a partner for life, a friend, and a great dad in my Hubby! 

I look forward to the next 16 years, and the next 16, and the next 16 (I can dream, can't I), my dear! 

And, no matter what the years bring, I do know that you will always be able to make me laugh.  That means a lot... more than you know, honey.  Especially, dealing with all the crap (RA, Lupus, brain tumor), being able to laugh with you, is often the best part of my day! 

This picture should show you how much I care...

 Yeah, he barely tolerates the cats... that's why it's so funny!  LOL

Hubby and I have plans to go out to a favorite expensive restaurant with fabulous seafood, but his dang cold is flaring back up!  Yesterday, it was almost gone, today, it is worse and seems to be in his chest, too!  ACK! 

If we have to postpone, it is no biggie to me... we have forever!!!

be well,
Dawn
