Happy Anniversary Hunny!!!

27 June 1987 ... I married the man of my dreams and my soul mate.

27 June 2014 ... We celebrate 27 years of marriage today ... I cannot believe how quickly 27 years have sped past.  

My pretty non-alcoholic cocktail
My hunny booked for us to go to our favourite restaurant Back 'o The Moon at Gold Reef City Casino.  We had a wonderful 3 hour dinner with the amazing company of our gorgeous son and scrumptuous food!  We also had the most amazing waiter, Future, ~ Connor commented "It must take a lot of training to get someone to be this good!" I was so happy that he recognized this.

 When Connor took this photo he said "Mom, you are not going to be happy!" Then when he took the next one he said to his Dad "Come on Dad ... you can do better!" and the next photo is gorgeous!!!!
 My gorgeous boy!!!
Connor has acquired a taste for Amarula and had a Dom Pedro with Amarula and loved it.

I look forward to another 27 wonderful years with my hunny.

    1. Thanks Desire! I am looking forward to spending the next 27 years with my hunny ~ he really is one in a million.

  2. Congratulations Lynn! Your guys look lovely. I got married the same summer, but as you know, mine didn't work out. I'm so happy for you that yours did. What a gorgeous couple you are. Could anyone NOT like Amarula? LOL I have never thought of drinking it with champagne though.
    Anniversary hugs for you!

    1. Hi Shawna, Thanks! I am always sad when I hear of marriages that do not last however I do not believe that it is a death sentence and when it is not working you need to do what is right for both of you.

      About AMARULA
      ... So glad you like something that is South African ~ Wikipedia says ... Amarula is a cream liqueur from South Africa. It is made with sugar, cream and the fruit of the African marula tree which is also locally called the Elephant tree or the Marriage Tree. It has an alcohol content of 17% by volume.)

      I then went to the source of all things (Google) and found this ...
