Way Back When-esday: My Endless Love

Dateline: October 7, 2005
Scott's Age: 37
Cheryl's Age: 40
Twins' Age (not pictured): 4

Nearly five years ago now, Scott surprised me for our anniversary. He arranged for a beloved friend to spend the night with our then 4-year-old twins, and surprised me with dinner and an overnight stay at the amazing, historic Jefferson Hotel...the locale of our post-wedding dinner and wedding night ten years earlier. When we checked in and shared the special occasion's details with the reception desk, we were upgraded to the swanky Governor's Suite. (Thankfully, then-governor Mark Warner was spending the evening elsewhere!)

The continued love of an incomparable life-partner and innumerable---and ever-increasing---happy, laughter-filled memories warm my mid-week.

What glimpse into the past makes your mid-week wonderful?

Play along with Way Back When-esday!

Happy Anniversary! What a wonderful surprise!! I'm not sure my hubby could ever pull off a surprise like that - for one - I'M always the one to arrange for someone to watch the kids and (2) he can't keep surprises - he's like a lil kid! ha!
