Today is my 15th Anniversary. My wife Eliza and I have known each other our entire lives — in fact, her mother was pregnant with her when she visited my mother in the hospital after giving birth to me. So, really, this is like our 33rd or 34th anniversary.
For the first time in many years Eliza has no idea what she is getting as a gift. I’m terrible at giving gifts and even worse at keeping a gifts a secret from her. Usually she knows what she is getting weeks in advance. But not this year.
I look forward to leaving work early, having a nice lunch with her, spending the afternoon chatting, and giving her a real surprise when we have dinner together tonight. I’m very excited.
Happy anniversary Eliza. I love you.
