Let the Celebration Begin!

Next week, Clif and I will be celebrating a very special event—our fortieth wedding anniversary. Holy guacamole! That’s a lot of years to be married. As Clif and I are both fans of celebrating early and often, last night we decided to go to Margaritas in Augusta to start the festivities. We plan to have a week of fun but simple pleasures leading to our big day on Sunday, March 19.

The staff at Margaritas is so friendly and accommodating. One server, who saw us struggling to take a selfie, offered to take our photo. (For some reason, Clif kept taking the picture upside down, and he hadn’t even had one sip of his margarita.) So here we are, Ma and Pa, after nearly forty years of marriage.

We had tasty baby chicken chimichangas to go with our delicious margaritas. I could have one of those little chimis right now.

We also had a plate of nachos, but we were so busy sipping our drinks and eating that we forgot to take a picture of it.

However, not so with dessert, an ice-cream ball with a crispy coating and drizzled with honey and chocolate.

Readers, I will admit that dessert was a bridge too far, and after the meal we waddled to the car. When Clif and I got home, we collapsed on the couch to watch two episodes of The Last Kingdom.

However, what a splendid way to begin celebrating.

  1. Congratulations on reaching your 40th! That is a milestone that sadly, fewer folks reach these days. You’re on rare earth! Glad to see you know how to celebrate it. πŸ™‚
    Great photo of you two cuties!

  2. Congratulations. You must have been very young when you married, because you only appear to be in your 40s in that picture. I’ve only been married 27 years and I could pass for Clif’s father!

    1. Oh, too funny and too kind. It’s the dim light that makes us look younger than we are. πŸ˜‰

      1. Pish posh! Judging from your picture, I would have to say you’d fit right in with Clif and me.

  3. Happy, happy (maybe I should add a few more to keep up with your celebrations…) Anniversary. Forty years is a good milestone. Here’s to fifty!
