Today marks a special countdown:

King has exactly one year
to plan
what we will do to celebrate our
20th wedding anniversary!

The traditional gift for a 20th Anniversary celebration is bone china.
Um, am I alone in thinking that is dumb?  Oh wait, I know... it's because in the past 19 years, your children have smashed all your dishes to pieces.

Well, the tradition of giving china was probably thought up before Corelle was invented. 

So, let's move on to the contemporary gift: platinummmm...  Much better!

Oh, and what about the really, really, really contemporary, (as in I-just-made-this-up) gift idea: trip to New England.

Now, see, those are ideas I can really get excited about.

Bone china?  Hmmmff, please!

Wow...coming up on 20...I vote for the jewelry idea. It lasts longer than china and a trip. year should be just about long enough for him to get it right. ;-)
