current mood: happy

Happy happy eighth anniversary to my beloved λ, eigenkumquat! I am so blessed to have met you (and in a state that let us get married eight years ago, no less). By now I have no idea what I would do without you, so let’s not find out. This year is apparently our pottery anniversary, and though I expected in two years we would get some kind of great traditional present, it turns out ten years is tin. So that is disappointing. But I vote that we keep giving each other tickets to Broadway shows and the like (I can put your card this year in a clay bowl if you like?) and just hang in there until we hit gold. Love you, bean!

Pottery? 8th is bronze. Chris got me something adorable this summer for our eighth wedding anniversary. I can't find it online, but it's a pair of nuzzling bronze owls in a little statue that's now on our mantel. You could ask him where he got it.

Aha! There are two, apparently. It is listed as Pottery/Bronze. I had only heard the pottery part. Next year is Willow/Pottery. Why does pottery occur twice in two years and why is nine such a step down from eight? I don't understand the order of these things at all (why is 10 Tin/Aluminum??? WHY?!) but bronze is definitely the better choice for 8.

Here we go! (Took me a while to get his response.)
