9 Years of bliss... celebrated Twi-style

Yesterday was my nine-year anniversary of marriage to the love of my life, Heather. It was my year to plan what we were doing. Neither of us mentioned anything about the day until Heather called me in the early afternoon hours to casually mention Happy Anniversary. I feigned like I had sort of forgot that it was our anniversary, trying to set the stage for my plans. I am still not sure if she bought it 100%. I like to try and surprise Heather with things like this—like the time I surprised her with a pink iPod shuffle for Valentines Day—she had no idea on that one.

So, I got her roses, of course—seems to be one of the safe things to get for an anniversary. But the real gift was—and this is where Twilight comes in—a home-made card and 4 bookmarks (one for each of her Stephenie Meyer Twilight novels). First, the bookmarks. They are double-sided and laminated. Here's what they looked like:


Now, for the card. It's hard to explain how it folds, but some of you might get the idea. It's in three panels, and when opened it has a zig-zag shape to it. That's not really what's important, though. It's what's on the card—the message—that is what's important. See for yourself:


And the best part about it is she loved it. What a great anniversary.
