We don’t really celebrate anniversaries – sometimes we exchange cards, go out for dinner or to a movie (just normal date night type things, nothing extravagant). We’ve been together almost 9 years (married for about 1 and a half), so I don’t find anniversaries a huge deal anymore. Maybe on our 10yr dating anniversary we’ll do something bigger since it’s kind of a milestone, but we’ll see!

I love these kinda threads. Our first anniversary we went out to dinner and hung out at the house. Our 2nd one – not sure… I want to go to a place called the “Plaza Lights” in KC, MO. I have never been and I’ve mentioned it to the Darling Husband several times so hopefully, he’ll take me there and maybe to a nice rest! 🙂 

But when we bump upon another anniversary in the family we def. are happy for them and wish them lifelong blessings in their marriage for every marriage is different!

We acknowledge anniversaries… but seeing as we spent our first wedding anniversary picking weeds at our new house I would have to conclude that we didn’t think it was that important. I guess it’s because like Valentines Day it should be everyday that counts. Of course that doesn’t happen either but I can be a dreamer. 🙂

Is the question if we would have a party/vow renewal or something or if we celebrate it privately?  Because yes, anniversaries first or

otherwise are important for

us to celebrate (we did a weekend getaway) BUT I wouldn’t have a party for other people to

celebrate.

also, no I wouldn’t care if something overlapped with the actual date.  I wouldn’t take off work for it unless we were also going on vacation.  We just celebrated the weekend before.  We could also do the weekend after, bc who cares?  I want to celebrate with my husband that we made it another year.  The date only tells us when that is.

I think every anniversary is important as alot can happen in 365 days. New jobs, homeless, infidelity, kids, death, illness. I don’t think you need to have a party or holiday. However I think you should set out to have some a meal and some quiet / alone time with your other half , each doing something nice for the other to let the other know they are loved and appreciated.

We got married on our friends 4 year anniversary LOL They didn’t mind! They were excited they had a wedding to go to on their special day.   And honestly for our first anniversary we planned a vacation… but in the future we might just use it as an excuse to eat some good food!  We are foodies so yes I guess in some sense you can say we are celebrating.  But if we had other plans I dont think I’d mind!!
