Anniversary Blueberries


Yes, August 4, 2014 is a special day!  DH and I are celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary today!  We are celebrating with 6 gallons of blueberries that DH picked, washed, and put up in freezer bags.

So all through the winter when we take out a freezer bag of blueberries marked 8/4/14, they will be our anniversary blueberries!

Last year was the big anniversary with the second honeymoon and the wonderful dinners and flowers.  This year was the treasured day running errands, quiet KFC dinner in the kitchen together, and the washing and packing of blueberries.  I wish when we were young we had some idea life would be so good! 

Note: Do not watch the movie Philomena unless you are prepared to cry for hours! Otherwise, it is a wonderful story! 

Back to the blueberries!


  1. Happy Anniversary! I got some blueberries today, ready for some good fruit salad. A quiet dinner at home together sounds ideal to me.

  2. Congratulations on the anniversary. I hope you have many many more. Love the idea of the blueberries.

  3. Blueberries, yum! That's great that you freeze them so you can eat them all winter.

    Happy anniversary!! Not too many folks make it 41 years any more. Here's to many more happy years!!

  4. Happy Anniversary, and what a clever idea!

  5. Congratulations on your 41st wedding anniversary! Now that definitely calls for a special celebration, and why not blueberry preparations so that you can enjoy all the goodness and memories in the winter!


  6. Hi Lottie! Happy Anniversary to you and your DH! I love the thought of pulling a bag of blueberries out of the freezer with your anniversary date on them... so sweet. Some of the best anniversaries are the ones when there's no planned celebration, just the two of you being together and enjoying whatever the day brings. Wishing you many many more to come! Blessings, Edie Marie

  7. Congratulations on you 41st Anniversary!! Love the blueberry idea! Enjoy!

  8. Happy Anniversary! I've heard that Philomena was good. Judy Dench is a wonderful actress. Enjoy your blueberries! Have a blessed weekend.

  9. Congratulations on your 41st anniversary! My husband and I are creeping up on our 30th in November. :)

    I think a blueberry picking day sounds absolutely perfect. Have a great week!

  10. Hi Lottie! I am late, but Happy Anniversary to you and your husband. :)
    Doing up blueberries for your special day sounds romantic as it was spent with your sweet-heart.
