14 years


on June 3rd, that's how long Darren and I have been married. We typically celebrate by going out to a fancy restaurant. We don't buy each other gifts, just a nice dinner.
This year, Darren threw all that out the window when this little gift arrived from the FedEx guy early Wednesday morning.
What a wonderful surprise.
I have needed and wanted a new computer for a couple of years now and we had decided that we would eventually get a Mac. I have been keeping a little mental Mac fund in my mind. Every time I passed on Starbucks or skipped a trip to Target, I would add that to my little mental fund. I have mentioned this fund to Darren, but there wasn't much in the fund so far. I was hoping for Christmas, if I was lucky. So imagine my surprise when the box arrived. I shed a little tear.
He scored major bonus points in the gift giving realm this year.
Look at the tiny keyboard. I love everything about it!
Darren, you're a rock star!!!
BTW, we still went out to dinner, but nothing fancy.

Mike was looking over my shoulder while I read this, and he is jealous.

We absolutely adore our Macs. (You may have to kiss those awesome Picasa collages goodbye, though).

Happy, happy anniversary. I didn't even think about it, I'm so sorry! But I love your new computer and you definitely needed it! Do the kids get to use it????
