My Special Anniversary Gift

On December 23rd my husband and I celebrated 22 years of marriage.

Generally we don't get each other much as Christmas is just a few days away.  I always bake his favorite cookies (Meringues with peppermint candies) and he usually gives me a lovely card.  But this year he surprised me with something I just had to share.

Ralph took a coffee can that he had been saving his change in forever and wrapped it with Christmas paper then inserted a branch.  He tied various colored ribbons from the branches and hung silver dollars to them.  He then placed the remaining silver dollars in the can.

He told me there was a silver dollar for every month we have been married.  Honestly, I just started crying.  He can be so sweet and romantic.
