An anniversary

That's alotta tulle and lace...
Today, Mr. D and I celebrate 27 years of marriage. We are giving each other a new roof to celebrate.
Last weekend, we drove around with a list of homes that had their roofs replace with the company. We were viewing shingle colours.
There was a time when we used to go on fall drives to view the leaves, stop at a country bistro for afternoon tea, or perhaps browse in little shops for a momento of the day.
However, there comes a time in every couple's life when you literally have to get your head out of the clouds and literally keep a roof over your head.Last weekend, it was all about Weathered Wood versus Mission Slate. Which would compliment our pinkish brick? What colour should the flashing be? For me, it was like planning a quilt project. For Mr. D., it was all about making sure I didn't suddenly fall in love with his favourtie: Mission Slate. (Wasn't going to happen  -- there was too much blue in it for my liking. It would have made the house look like a baby quilt)
After much deliberation, we chose Weathered Wood with Chocolate flashing. It is not a romantic anniversary present. It is, however, a REALLY expensive necessary evil. It's dinner in tonight -- pot roast with Mr. D's favourite lemon cheese cake for dessert. And really, at this point in our lives, we have been blessed with the gift of true love and friendship and that is priceless.
I am off to the gym now to see if they have finally installed that time machine...
Have a great day everyone!
