Wedding Anniversary -- 20 Years

It does not feel like it's been 20 years. But time is a weird thing. To me the late 90ies also feel like they are 10 years ago and obviously that's even longer ago. To be fair I was only 21 when we got married but still, it just does not feel like 20 years have passed. I have no idea where the time has gone. But it's neither here nor there of course. We have had a lot of great moments in those 20 years, some amazing vacations and fun every day stuff. Of course it wasn't easy every day and we have had our struggles along the way but I guess that's why it's "for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health" etc. I don't think any relationship is ever just easy and perfect all the time. But all in all I really can't complain, it's mostly been 20 pretty fun years. :) So here's to the next 20. 

We had originally planned to celebrate with an epic vacation of some sort. Maybe Fiji, Tahiti or the Maldives or Mauritius. Somewhere far flung and amazing. Of course Covid cancelled those plans for us. We are still planning on doing something epic but it will have to wait. Maybe later this year or next year. So for this year for the actual anniversary there really wasn't a whole lot we could do. It was cold with snow and ice on the ground so not really the type of weather to spend a ton of time outside. Most movie theaters aren't even open mid-week and/or if they are they only have a few show times in the evening. Museum would have been fun too but most require scheduled appointments in advance etc. And leaving CT is pretty much a no-go right now too cause you then have to quarantine when coming back plus whatever restrictions there are in the state you are going to.

So we ended up booking 1 night at a boutique hotel in Southport, CT - close by to Rizzuto's in Westport. Had a lovely dinner at Rizzuto's and then a night cap at the hotel restaurant. I had taken both Tuesday and Wednesday off from work so it was nice having some time off mid week. Not the epic vacation I had originally envisioned but it was still fun and we made the best of it. Goes with the "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" type saying. And we did have a fun day and night out. 

Mail Update: Received a letter from/owe a response to: Kimber/Canada, Tiffany/OK and Eunice/Malta.
