This weekend my husband and I will celebrate 11 years of wedded bliss.
Okay, 11 years being married, with a vast majority of those years qualifying as bliss. 🙂
The Super-Hubs and I have never really made a big deal out of our anniversary. Weird, since I’m a hopeless romantic in love with love, right?
We sort of recognize it, but we don’t do gifts for each other and we don’t make big plans or take elaborate trips.
In fact, last year was the first year since our Honeymoon that we’ve taken a trip specifically to celebrate our anniversary, and we made that happen only because it was the big number 10, and we didn’t go far. Just a couple of nights in Savannah. We really enjoyed it.
This year we’re going to dinner and to see Avengers. Now that is an anniversary celebration!
Perhaps we don’t make a big deal out of our anniversary because it falls at a bad time. It’s the end of the school year (that’s not a great time for teachers, which I was and my hubby still is). It’s exactly half-way between the birthdays of our sons, and it’s smack-dab in the middle of a month chock-full of family birthdays and other events.
I had to look up what the traditional anniversary gift is this year. 11 years is steel. Hmmm. I think I’ll dig out one of the stainless steel shell-shaped mint trays (why are those even a thing?) we were given as a wedding gift and re-gift it to him.
He’ll Love It.
To Super-Hubby: Thanks for putting up with me for 11 years and promising to put up with me for a zillion more. I love you, B.
Share with me: Are you and your spouse big anniversary people? Do you usually give the traditional gifts by year? What’s the most memorable thing you’ve done for an anniversary?
