Tuesday was our 8th wedding anniversary. I really didn't think Matt had anything up his sleeve this year. I surely wasn't expecting anything. We'd planned a low key dinner at home.
But just when I'm not expecting anything, Matt will go and make my jaw drop.
The week before we were out walking and I pointed a blue hydrangea bush that was in full bloom, and told him that I had wanted blue hydrangeas in my wedding bouquet but the florist ended up giving me purple. Like every bride, at first I was a little disappointed they weren't exactly as I'd envisioned, but in the end, the purple was just right.
After our walk, he found a picture of me with my wedding bouquet and took it to a florist. The florist made a long stem bouquet that looked almost exactly like my wedding bouquet, down to the bachelor's buttons and the blue ribbon.
I suggest you tell your brother, your father, or your co-worker who is stumped for anniversary gift ideas to borrow Matt's idea. It's a keeper, and of course, so is he.
And in case you're wondering, yes, I carried the bouquet around for a few minutes, just for the memories.
