Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 196 – Anniversary Special



“A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year.”  –  Paul Sweeney

Thank you, Spidey for this.

Today marks our 17th wedding anniversary.

There have been ups and downs, sadnesses and joys, kids and pets, houses and cars, and lots and lots of family stuff!

He asked me what I wanted for my gift… I genuinely want nothing. I have all I want. Him, our kids, our kitty, our family.

I can say, hand on heart, that there is no one else in this world who I would want to have spent over half my life with so far (20+ years dating!)

I love that man that is my Hubby Dearest, more than I can express in words, and I count myself as a blessed one to have him in my life.

Happy Anniversary to my soulmate ❤


And a little of 18th November trivia, for you all too! There are a good few other special days celebrated on this same date…

  • Mickey Mouse’s birthday – he’s 90 this year!
  • Princess day – maybe I’ll get treated like one (unlikely, as I have a child who is currently being sick everywhere – more Cinderella than Princess!)
  • Apple Cider Day – Cheers!
  • Occult Day – ooer!

And a good few more!

And traditional wedding anniversary gifts for the 17th milestone?

Wine and Spirits! 

So… tell me, what would be your ideal anniversary gift? 😘

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps ❤ And enjoy your week!

    I love my life; I am not sad. However, I must admit that hearing you talk about your life and your husband leaves me with just a bit of a hole – I have never had a wife, fiance, or relationship with a woman who felt about me the way you feel about your husband. Hmm, guess the bucket list grows.

    I would be happy with a 5-course meal enjoyed for about 5 hours at dinner time! Enjoying food and the company of your husband + some great conversations get more and more difficult as your child grows (have a toddler), I find….

    Happy anniversary to you and your soulmate and to so many more!

    I always say the same thing. I want nothing. After 33 years married (40 total years) I have everything ❤️
