To my Husband

5 years ago today we were in a whirlwind of excitement. Doesn't it seem like a lifetime ago and yet how quickly have the last 5 years gone? You had planned a surprise for me. I was desperate to know what you had planned. We took a slam-door train into London. Then you took me for dinner at Clos Maggoire. Wow, you really know how to impress a girl! Then off you whisked me to watch the Lion King. I was enraptured by the show and by the wonderful guy next to me. Our first date was a knock-out...

2 years ago today you were also planning a surprise. We went into London and saw Chicago. You had a ring in your pocket. I had no idea. You kept making me walk on the ringless side of you so I wouldn't feel the box. We had cocktails and watched the barmen flare. Once again we ate in Clos Maggoire. Oh you did spoil me! On the way home, on the Jubilee Bridge in the moonlight, you got down on one knee and asked me The Question.

The 3rd March will always be such a special day for me, filled with the most wonderful memories.

I love you.

  8. I think I might know what I want from the UK!!! "Cadbury mini eggs" I cant find them over here this year and I am obsessed with them. My fav easter candy. Let me look in a few more stores before you get them, but if I cant find them...thats what I want. (they are a UK product, right?)

    ps i have a stat exam this week and when its over I will ship you some more goodies. anything else besides peanut butter m&ms?
