05 Aug 2010 Starting Anew at 25 Years
 |  Category: Celebrate 50!

My husband and I will celebrate our 25th anniversary in a few weeks and our son’s sudden move to Arkansas provided us with an opportunity to start our 2nd 25 years with a fresh start.

I’m talking dishes and pots/pans!  Yes!

We decided instead of buying him dishes and pots/pans we would buy ourselves some new ones and move ours along.  I loved it! 

dishesYou see, the dish set we have been using for 25 years was…do any of you recall this….???….from the grocery store.  You buy something like $20 worth of groceries and you get a plate.  We had our entire family doing it for us and had a nice set of dishes.  As you can imagine, 25 years later, it isn’t much of a set at this point with mishaps along the way.  So we finally bought ourselves our first set of dishes!!!

Oh such fun!  I know…it doesn’t take much to make me happy!!
