For years, I have mentioned to my children how I wish I would have had a wedding reception and a wedding cake. My husband is not a fan of such things and I don't think he would have ever danced at a reception or anything like that. I just have always thought that we missed out on a lot and I have always wanted a wedding cake of my own. I had also mentioned that for my 25th anniversary, it would be nice to have a small celebration. Well, our anniversary was Jan. 11th and it came and went with no cake and no real celebration, so I assumed that they had forgotten what I had said.
Instead my oldest daughter had planned a surprise party for me. ( My husband knew about it the whole time. ) She had invited many of our friends and relatives for a party to help us celebrate our life together and I had a cake.
