RE: also, i have to plug my town. savannah is terriffic during spring and fall, and plenty romantic.
yeah, very nice place. Loved "river walk" an historic cotton trade district on the river front. We were really disappointed with Paula-dean's restaurant but enjoyed "old pink house", boar's head grill & tavern and river street seafood grill.
I'm partial to St Augustine "America's oldest town". lots of stuff: Spanish fort, light house, alligator farm etc. Lots of great restaurants: Conch house, tasting room, Harry's. Stay away from the santa-maria...disgusting place, disgusting food.
You can pack for her or not take anything at all.
Ooh...that's a good suggestion. Romantic, special, long term meaningful.
I took my wife to the Cayman Islands for a week in January.
Believe me, it's hard even for me to screw up that up. We had a great time.
Anniversary update: Call it successful. After careful consideration, I decided against gift wrapping any of my appendages opting instead for a $1400 eternity ring and dinner at a fancy restaurant. I got laid that night by candlelight over wine and cheese (her idea) and we broke out the whip cream (my idea). She later exchanged the ring for a different one but fortunately for me, it was less expensive. We should be good for maybe 5-10 more years...I think, by then our kids will be long gone. Surely by then she'll weigh the merits of our marriage against a burning desire to release her inner cougar and prowl for young bucks?
Congratulations on 20 years of commitment. Keep up the maintenance work on your marriage and it will continue to pay off. It sounds like "the buck stops with you" so I don't think she will be prowling for a younger buck. One mature buck is worth way more than a 100 "bucks" in the bank.
I consider myself pretty lucky for hooking up w/ her. If it weren't for her, I'd probably be in jail or dead by now. She's has a contagious personality that people (including other men) always seem to gravitate to and the years have really been kind to her. I got called out once on this forum but in a different thread by a certain well known individual whom shall remain anonymous as being "pussywhipped". Probably some truth to that statement...obviously, I prefer the term "pussy whipcreamed". By the way and just for laughs, I really did pull out the whip cream that night but forgot to pack the hand mirror for our stay at the Delray Beach Marriott. I'd forgotten how messy that stuff was, we had to shower afterwards and the sheets kept sticking to me all night. lol
You are blessed! Also, be assured that with proper maintenance that whipped cream will come in "handy" for years to come. 42 years and counting for me and my bride. It only gets better if you are intentional and alert and most importantly selfless.
DO NOT, REPEAT, DO NOT be like the doofus that showed up on either "Oprah" or "Dr. Phil".
(This was one of the wife's, "OMG!, you gotta see this unbelievable knucklehead!" TV reviews.)
The dimwit in question took his wife out for their anniversary dinner. To Mickey D's.
And, I take it that he was not recreating their first date, or taking her to her absolute favorite restaurant, or something...
McD's wouldn't be my first choice...but I could make a logical argument that it is, at least, a valid choice.
