Surprises are foolish things. The pleasure is not enhanced, and the inconvenience is often considerable. ~Jane Austen

my inlaws have their 35th wedding anniversary coming up on the 22nd of December. My FIL is surprising my MIL with a vow remewal. She seriously has no idea at this point. i'm not sure how far the surprise will go. will we tell her before she gets her hair and makeup done that day...or will she be surprised when we walk into the chapel. i have no idea. hmmmmm
This got me to thinking about surprises and how I feel about them...I'm not sure. I love surprises IN THEORY but if I was going to renew my own vows, i really think i'd like a hand in it. Fingers crossed that my MIL doesn't share my sentiment!! :)

Yeah.. I would want in on the vow renewal. I'm a control freak. That's why I don't want the surprise on my behalf.

I forgot to add that I think that's so awesome they've been together for 35 years and I think it's really, really sweet that Jeffrey's dad wants to do this for his wife.
