16 Years of Married Bliss

Traditional Anniversary Gifts
Hubbers and I are celebrating 16 years of marriage in just a day or two.  I was reading a book about "traditional" gifts for XX number of years of marriage and after an internet search I found that there is no traditional gift for 16 years.  A modern gift would be  Silver Hollow-ware (what is that, anyway?) or travel.  But what about people like us who have more kids love than money?

Hubbers is an act of service love language guy.  I  try to do things for him to show that I love him.  I will try to make him a special dessert or give a good back rub, or make a favorite dinner, but it seems that I never can find the best present for purchasing.  I've stopped trying.

He likes to give me flowers but they have to be the kind that I can transplant and grow in or around our home.  This is the kind of gift that keeps on giving and I've come to really enjoy it.  I'd also like a night out without having to cook, but again, the budget comes into play.

So, what I'm giving Hubbers for our anniversary this year is no surprise.  I will continue my life-long job of bathing him in all the love he can take.  He has had my heart since before he ever knew. 
It's silver and *somewhat* hollow.
Sweetie, here's to 100 more years together.  I love you.
