So last night Pete and I went to dinner at our favorite restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. Dim lights, great atmosphere, wine, and each other. I really thought I had everything I needed right then and there...until he showered these very memorable words on me:
"Five years. Wow."
(a full second of silence as he gazes lovingly into my almost-teary eyes. Then...)
"You want some asparagus?"
I'm so looking forward to the 10-year green beans...
