My husband and I have made a tradition of going to the nearest Cheesecake Factory for dinner every year on our wedding anniversary. However, the past year has been financially disastrous for us due to circumstances that were unpreventable and unforseen. As a result, I fear that we will not be able to carry on our simple celebration this year. It is especially important to me to at least try to make it there on our special day because the following week my husband will be leaving for six weeks for work. He will be training for a new position that comes with a decent raise, so that is our light at the end of the tunnel. The training will be in Georgia, and we live in Ohio, so I am hoping to have a nice anniversary meal with him before we are apart for a month and a half. We have three young children who are going to be needing back to school clothes and supplies, so any extra money we get right now is going towards that. I don't expect anyone to finance a fancy meal for a couple they don't know, but if for some reason you feel compelled to help us out with this, rest assured that it would be so very much appreciated and your generosity will be payed forward as soon as we are able. Thank you for reading this, and God bless!
