And thanks everyone for sharing all your stories.  They were all really great and some were very touching.  It’s just a reminder that marking an occasion of any kind can be such a special experience.  And that anniversaries are a way to mix something significant in with the day to day.  It might just be another date to every one else, but it’s an important day to you.  So here’s to celebrating!
