According to one of those lists on About.com that is the choice I have when it comes to getting Laurent a gift to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary.
July 21 – 2007: In our friend Joelle’s garden with Elaine who married us – I remember her as a little girl at Air Canada Christmas parties. Though it was a glorious sunny day the small lantern was lit to represent all our friends who could not be with us that day.
A traditional gift would be:
Candy – to symbolize the sweetness of our love
Iron – to represent the strength of our marriage
Apparently a more modern gift would be:
Wood – to signify a long-lasting and solid relationship
If I were to choose something sparkly and blingy it would be in:
Should I wish to celebrate in colour they suggest:
And if I’m going to say it with flowers:
calla lilies – which signify “magnificent beauty” in the language of flowers
And we could celebrate by:
Making candy together
Planting a tree together:
– An oak represents solidity
– A pine represents the evergreen character of our love
– A flaming red maple represents the flaming passion we have for each other
– A flowering crab (?) tree represents love eternal
I think we’ll just wish each other Happy Anniversary, thank each other and the powers that be for six – well okay actually 34 if you could the 29 year engagement – years together, hug, walk the dogs and go to the Lieutenant’s Pump for breakfast. Beats the heck out of candy, iron or wood!
Okay there is just too damned much going on. Both Laurent and I forgot it was our wedding anniversary today. Yep 2 years ago today he made an honest man out of me. Mind you at that point we’d been together for 29 years so …
Watching Laurent sign his life away – July 21, 2007. As a sidebar, I remember when Elaine, the minister who married us, was a child visiting the office with her mother. And there she was years later performing our wedding ceremony. How wonderful its that?
According to the tables for this sort of thing, this year’s gift could be cotton, paper or crystal. I was thinking of taking him out for a gelato, guess that doesn’t fit into any of those catagories?????
