The other day (8/10) my Lovely Wife and I celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary. We were mmphkah years old when we married (it is interesting that my LW is still only 20 something).
We spent a quiet day at home with me roasting some beef with baked potatoes and salad plus ice cream for dessert. Most of our anniversaries are spent quietly at home. On one of our anniversaries we went to a riding stable and rode 2 horrible horses named Orville and Peanut; her horse sort of did what my LW wanted but mine felt that he has worked enough for the year.
On our 25th anniversary, we went to a dude ranch in MI, where the horses were much nicer. On our 40th anniversary we went to a dude ranch (Peaceful Valley) in CO. We rode horses at least once a day and had a lot of fun plus there were s'mores and great meals 3 times a day (my LW feels any meal she doesn't have to make is great).
I am very lucky to have such a wonderful LW!
