Ah, Valentine’s Day. Love is truly in the air as passion and romance fight off winter’s chill here in Minnesota. And so, on this magical day where Cupid holds sway and hearts and minds turn toward love’s true embrace, we’re all 25x excited.
Actually, we’re 25x excited throughout 2012 because it’s our 25th anniversary year. But today we’ve found an even more exciting 25th anniversary to celebrate. It’s our own beloved Pam Cesnik and her long-suffering husband, Luke.
Today is their 25th wedding anniversary. (Congrats, Pam and Luke! Let’s make that clear up front.) And, as you can imagine with a Valentine’s anniversary, these two have a history of pushing the envelope beyond mere flowers and chocolates. In the past (on their 19th and 23rd anniversaries), Luke has decided it’s “cute” to embarrass Pam with a tuxedoed barber shop quartet sent to her place of work. Mission accomplished. She's been mortified.
But revenge, as they say, is a dish best served cold. And (see earlier comments regarding February in Minnesota) today seemed a good day for payback.
So Pam, much like the black widow spider, lured her unwitting mate into a trap. Some "complicated insurance interaction matters" demanded a face-to-face meeting for both Pam and Luke with Creative Memories' crack HR squad. Sorry, hon, there's no way around it.
Luke arrived, completely unsuspecting, and the trap was sprung. And if the look on his face in this photo is any indication, he celebrated his 25th anniversary with a moment in the spotlight that must have felt 25 years long!
We didn't let Pam off too easy, though, by finding a chair for her to join her sweetie for the second serenade!
