Believe it or not, my beau and I have been official for a full five years today (that's married, folks).
What to do to celebrate such a milestone?
Years back I was promised a romantic getaway, but for some reason, those plans have been pushed back indefinitely (tenth, maybe).
Five years would have been flowers had I not been a buzz kill and reminded J yesterday that I hate flowers and would much rather take the cash and run.
We'll be going out to dinner, I'll be dressing up, with make-up (my healthy face) upon request, and yes, after almost ten years together he got up the courage to ask for his present in advance.
And just because he's doing the best he can, I maybe he'll get it.
