Johnny and I celebrated our 51st anniversary this past July 7th. Of course last year was the BIG FIVE-O, and I blogged about it here and here.
Some anniversaries we exchange gifts with each other and some we do not. This year because we are building our new home, we decided not to buy specific gifts; however, when we were out and about on our special day, we stumbled upon the perfect gift for the both of us! Our favorite color is blue. This 5½ inch, cobalt blue pitcher caught Johnny's eye first. Once I glommed upon it, there was no doubt that it was coming home with us!
You can see by the "made in China" sticker on the bottom that this is quite a costly piece. (Ahem!)
We both prefer to think that it reflects the beautiful, ongoing love we've shared for over half a century.
Thank you for allowing me to show it today.
