December 2nd was Dale and my 15th wedding anniversary. My lovely sweet hubby surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of two toned ruby roses and a couple of lovely crystal wine glasses and bottles of wine. The 15th wedding anniversary is crystal and roses and apparently mucus as it turns out. I had tentatively planned a little overnight trip to what looks like a very cute hotel nearby in Riverside. The Mission Inn hotel is in downtown Riverside and every year they have a "festival of Lights" with about 3.5 million lights all over the outside of the hotel and nearby buildings. I haven't seen it yet but I read about it in the paper and it looks Christmas-y and fun and I thought would be kind of a neat way to celebrate 15 years together. Unfortunately I have been fighting a cold since Thanksgiving and just when I was starting to feel human again, Dale came down with it. So we agreed to postpone the celebration and hopefully we will still make it out there this season. Since I had been cooped up for too long, I went out and met Becky for a nice breakfast and visit in Fullerton before her classes and then did a little Christmas shopping. Dale stayed home in bed, but much to my surprise when I got home he had crawled out and knew that the 15 year anniversary is crystal and roses and had purchased a beautiful bouquet of long stem roses and made up a pretty basket with the crystal glasses and wine. What a sweetheart! I knew there was a reason I married that man!
