Our wedding anniversary

the card I made

Where does the time go?...
27 years ago today, I married my best friend, love of my life and we said "I do"



We went out to celebrate and had such a great day. Our kids joined us and we had the most delightful lunch and afternoon, dinning outdoors at Euro Restaurant, overlooking the water.
pavlova, kiwifruit terrine with Tahitian vanilla ice-cream and strawberries

The food at Euro is always divine and I have to show off my dessert which was, I think the very best part of my meal, even though the starter of scallops and the Peking duck was also very fine.

Here are a few more pictures ... love watching the fish swim around in the aquarium, near the entrance to the bathroom - maybe we may find Nemo here.


DD looking very elegant

The Diamond Princess Cruise ship was in port - always marvel at how big they are - like about an 18 story building and people walking near are dwarfed by the majestic size.
We have a long weekend here, Monday is Auckland Anniversary day, so hope to get some work done around the house.
This weekend, I hope you take time for you! 
have a lovely one
hugs
Carolyn

  8. Happy anniversary! This June will mark 21 years since my husband and I first met. 19 years of marriage coming up in October. Looks like you had a nice celebration. Those cruise ships are huge. My husband keeps talking about taking a cruise -- everyone raves about them, but I'm just not so sure about being on something that big out in the water. :/ We've had a three day weekend and I've done nothing but take time for me (except for a little cleaning on Thursday) -- my husband is away on business (Bangkok and Singapore -- no fair)! Back to school for me and the boys tomorrow. Have a fabulous evening. Tammy
