Im looking for some ideas ladies!
Its my husband and I’s first wedding anniversary this monday- we’re leaving to travel to boston tomorrow for our honeymoon so i have to figure it out ASAP.
He’s a big sports guy but I get him sports stuff for his bday( in 2 weeks) and christmas every yyear and I dont know if more sports stuff, says happy anniversary! He’s already bought tickets to fenway- so i want to buy him something for our first anniversary but I have no idea what to get him. We’ve been together 8 years, have a baby on the way due in Feb, and with this being our 1st anniversary, i think its something special….Its certaintly been the toughest year of our relationship-not in terms of us fighting but more in terms of what I, and us as a couple went through. We got married last summer with my mom fighting cancer, we didnt want to go on a honeymoon in case she didnt make it so that was completely out of the picture, she entered hsopice in the fall, and we were over there everyday( but truly not really having time to ourselves as newlyweds but we werent thinking along those lines at all, we just wanted to be close to my mom) and then she passed away November 5th, 2015, and then with my dads health not the best( and us being the only ones in the family with no kids at the time) we broke our lease on our apartment and spent the month grieving and packing( holy moly, we, or I should say, I, have a whole lot of stuff for 2 bedroom apartment, think house but squashed into an apartment but still looks nice and thats me!) and moved back in my parents house in my old bedroom( with no privacy much I should add!) It was a learning and adjustment for sure, and then we got a puppy for our family, and now found out we are pregnant and a baby on the way! We will probably be moving out to a house rental in the fall( though it will be hard to leave my dad but we will have to find an arrnagement that works).
Sorry long talking there, but we have been through so much this year, and I always said if we can get through this year, we can get through anything…and we did!! And I love him more for being there for me every step of the way!( and this is where my tears come ha! Pregnant emotional me!) But in all honesty, he was there for me, my family and my mom every step of the way, even slept beside me on the small, tiny, less-than-1 person cot, falling onto the floor numerous times but still hellping to hold my moms hand, beside my mom in the hospital when she was in a coma before she passed away, even though he had to work 12 hours the next day, and then came back to the hospital for the next 12 hours every single day( he was the only one out of everyone to do that)….He never complained about never going away sooner for our honeymoon, or really doing anything for us and me kind of putting our new marriage on the backburner and not really have any “newlywed” time, since my mom was on the forefront. He put up with moving back in with my dad, going from having our own larger apartment to having pretty well, no privacy, and helping out my dad a lot. A lot of guys would have scoffed at even 1 or 2 of these ideas, but he stepped up to the plate everytime. I just want to thank him and I know buying something doesnt always convey your thanks, but I want to get him something to show/tell him, thank you for marrying me and being here with me as an amazing husband 1 year later..we did it!
But i just have no idea what to get him. Thanks!
