Counting the days we’ve been together
It all started with a blackboard that we had before our wedding where my husband used to write ‘the number of days until we say I do.’ After the wedding he changed this to ‘the number of days since we said I do.’ Last Christmas I got a further surprise. A treasure chest with crystals representing each day we had been together, with some special ones for days like our wedding, Valentines and anniversaries. Every now and then I get a packet of new ones to add to keep the days up to date. It’s lovely every time. Romantic gestures can be such a joyous part of a relationship. Next week see’s 1500 days since we have been together- a big pile of diamonds with no stones or days of doubt.
