One little word

I've never joined in with this before and I am not doing so 'officially' in that I have not bought the class, but I have decided to choose a word to work with over the year, prompted by Rinda and her posts here and here. In a way it is a little bit of a cheat as I know that there are several important dates coming up this year which we will definitley CELEBRATE but I thought I could use this as my word for 2012 and look for the unusual to celebrate as well as the usual.

2012 is a big year in our family. We have several 'noughty' birthdays - a 10, 30, 40, 60, 70 and 90. We have an 18th and 21st birthday to celebrate. And this year Hugh and I celebrate our silver (25th) wedding anniversary one week before my parents celebrate their golden (50th) anniversary.

This evening I am celebrating the fact that I have booked something special for our anniversary, but I cannot tell you what yet as it is a secret from Hugh! He will find out soon enough (well, nearer our anniversary in May!) but I don't want to put it on here yet in case he reads my blog! (You'll have to keep guessing Hugh!) I know that my Mum reads this and so this will get her mad with guessing too, but she will also have to wait, as you will too dear readers! However, I will be doing a scrapbook page about the surprise and I will be sharing it with you later in the year.

Meanwhile I will leave you with a candid photo from our wedding - almost 25 years ago! See the little girl in pink? Our bridesmaid? She will be the one celebrating her 30th birthday this year!
Expect to see a lot more photos this year of our wedding - I love both the candid ones which were taken as well as the official ones - we had a lot taken, we both worked for Kodak, as did my Mum!

What a delightful photo; the joy of the day just shines through! And "celebrate" sounds like the perfect word for you.

Definitely the right word for you this year! I hope you have a fabulous year long party planned?!

We get to do 18 and 21 and 50 all in one year, but not the Silver as well
