I wouldn’t dare write about spiders and my upcoming anniversary in the same blog entry, so I’ll post two entries tonight. I need your help, Dear Reader. I need your great gift ideas! Next week is my wedding anniversary. Last year’s anniversary gifts will be hard to beat, but I want to try. It has to be something more than taking her out for dinner. We talked about going for dinner at Seoul Tower overlooking the city, but I hear that the food isn’t so good. (Is the food at observatory deck restaurants ever delicious?)
Last year, in honor of our tenth anniversary, I took my wife to Chez François L’Auberge in Great Falls, Virginia, one of the finest French restaurants in the Washington, D.C. area. I gave her a brand-new wedding ring, long-stemmed roses, and I wrote a small book for her. Our anniversary book featured our love story, a collection of family words and phrases (you know, those cute pet sayings couples say to each other), and all the songs I used to sing to my son when he was younger. I think I exhausted what was left of my creativity on those gfts. I used to be good at coming up with gift giving ideas, but lately reality has dimmed my sense of creativity. I need your help. Please post some gift ideas for me! Thanks, I appreciate it. By the way, if you’re in the Washington, D.C. area, I highly recommend having dinner at Chez François L’Auberge. The food is manifique, the service is exceptional, and the atmosphere is belle. Très haute couture.
