Happy Happy!

Jan 26th 2009. India celebrated its 60th Republic Day, and-

Me n my other half celebrated our 9th Wedding Anniversary.

9 years of marriage! After 8 years of knowing each other, out of which we courted for 6 years. A total of 16 years that we've been seeing each other around!!

and all I can say, my dear husband, is that we continue to see each other around, for many years more...

That disagreements, spats and fights notwithstanding, the something that bound us together in the first place still continues to hold supreme sway through all the ups and downs. God bless.

One delightful thing about this anniversary was that it was the first time Sonny boy wished us happy 'anniserversary'. A big mouthful, but he got it out in one shot. He got to know about it from my Mom who called, and he wished me first and then when told that it was Acha's happy anniversary too, he wished the Acha too, altho' i could make out he was puzzled at this couple happy thing. So far he only knew of Happy Birthdays and there was only ONE B'day boy or girl.

The Acha bought me a pair of lovely diamond ear studs. And he gets the plasma tv he's been nagging me for months to buy. We aren't all THAT lovey-dovey- he had to be asked to buy me the studs and I had to be conned into getting him the plasma tv.
But anyway, happy anniversary to us!

Belated anniversary wishes JLT :)
Hope you both enjoyed the gifts you had to ask each other for :)
I guess that's what happens after knowing each other for so long.
I don't get a gift from V even if I ask for one!
