For our first anniversary we went on an epic roadtrip… I have to say it was better than the honeymoon. We drove from BC where we live down to Salt Lake City, visited the Little Chocolateers, then drove to Vegas, spent a few days there, drove to LA, went to Disney (sooo awesome, we went to the Halloween party, so fantastic!), then drove up the coast, and went to the Roloff Farms pumpkin patch. It was awesome! I was unsure about going big for our first anniversary, but it was well worth it.

We are going to Aruba for 10 days.

We did the Disney Halloween party in Florida and it was AMAZING, I loved every second of it! We’re going to take my stepson next year 🙂 What was Roloff Farms like?!

I’m so jealous of everyone’s plans! My DH is going to be taking summer classes at university and our anniversary is on a monday…so no special get aways for us. But we’ll probably just go to our favorite restaurant in town:)

We were too busy to take a honeymoon, so this is our little honeymoon/anniversary trip! My parents paid (well, gave us the money!) for the trip, so it has just been in savings until we could find the perfect time to go!

We had a quiet morning at home, then went to our ceremony site to walk around and take a photo, and went to dinner at our rehearsal dinner place. In a few weeks we are doing a cruise to the Eastern Caribbean (since our honeymoon site (Fiji) is too far away).

That’s really nice of your parents:) I’ve always wanted to go to Aruba! I’m hoping to take a longer honeymoon (we went away for a few days to a nearby city) on one of our anniversaries, but that might be hard with a child:)

We’re going to Key West which is where we were supposed to honeymoon but had to cancel. We went on a cruise instead. I am so excited for the Keys! We’ve never been.

We had limited time and budget (and no car :-P) but we were able to get away overnight at a state park a few hours away. Someday I’d love to celebrate an anniversary at our honeymoon location, though

It’s taken a while to get over the “should of done that” or post wedding blues, so I thought for our one year we could celebrate in such a way to do those things we wanted or just to relive the day:
We’ll start by taking some photos(we have a photog friend) in the Boston Garden, with my husband in a nice suit and me in a nice knee length white dress with some of the accessories worn on our wedding day- like the jewelry and the hot pink shoes my BM’s wore (I got a pair). We didn’t particularly like our cake too much since the cake lady put a totally different color ribbon on it, and it had wilted flowers on it and we regretfully didn’t have a cake topper. We also never went cake testing b/c the wedding was out of state. so…we just bought a lovely clay pink peony cake topper (from DK design) which we will take pictures on a cake for our one year, and this will be our keepsake 🙂 We are also flying to the inlaws later in the day and will cut the real one year cake (maybe if it isn’t freeze dried or moldy). 🙂
Then…my husband will force me to move on…;)

We did a weekend trip to Saugatuck, MI-it’s a cute little beach town not too far away. We wanted to do something but nothing major…we’ll save major trips for double digit anniversaries : )
We didn’t do any gifts, we like taking trips better since it’s a gift to both of us!

Today is our anniversary! DH is actually driving us back from a snowboarding trip to Mammoth. We spent 3 nights in a cute little condo at the Village. It was so nice. It even snowed for us while we were there. We got a foot of fresh powder. Went out for a nice dinner last night. And afterwards went back to the condo to drink champagne and eat our wedding cake. It was surprisingly delicious for being in the freezer for a year!

Hopefully having a baby or spending the first few days with our newborn. I’m due September 20th, and we were married on the 25th, so no get aways for us, but the best gift we could have given each other
