Fall is our favourite time of year, it is often sunny and mild, with warm breezes, most of the biting bugs are gone and the outdoor world is so colourful. We got engaged in the fall, we got married in the fall and 44 years later, we still enjoy the fall, as we remember our history together.
Sister L and brother L from New Brunswick always give thoughtful anniversary gifts. This year, they proposed a Zoom conversation celebration. Time and date, menu and beverages agreed upon, we eagerly awaited the day. Knowing how much thought they would put into this gift, we made sure to set the scene properly at our end, formal clothes (at least at Zoom height), a nice table setting and candles. Laughter and conversation flowed, along with the bubbles.
Distance and Covid circumstance make celebrating special occasions a bit more difficult, but we have only to try harder to overcome those difficulties to make the time special. That is the meaning of life.
FALLing in Love ©
From across the room, I met your gaze,
long golden hair shining in sun’s rays.
I wonder aloud “Now who is that”?
Walking by my desk, you stop to chat.
Weeks quickly flew by with work busy,
at Christmas party, you danced with me.
Gazing deep into your eyes so blue,
it was at that moment that I knew
that you were the only one for me.
Now to turn me and you into we.
After courtship, we were soon engaged,
one year later, our wedding was staged.
In mid September, I do’s were said
and mere moments later, we were wed.
Each year since in September weather
I’m so happy we are together.
Happy Anniversary to my Patty
