@MrsDrRose612:  Pretend your a tourist in your home town. Take a tour, do local things. Just enjoy your time away and short break… and each other. Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! I love low-key anniversaries. We haven’t been married a year, and ours will be on a Saturday as well, and we just prefer a nice dinner, some yummy ice cream, and a walk.

Yeah… usually our anniversary is something like, getting Chinese and watching a favorite movie… Ugh, so boring, but we haven’t had money to spend for previous anniversaries. 

This year, we were planning on a trip to San Francisco, but Darling Husband doesn’t have any vacation time (new job!), so we will probably just go to a nice restaurant!

I’ve lived here about 4 years but I already get that feeling of nothing to do sometimes lol. I love it here but the nice thing is there are a ton of nice areas around that are constantly changing. My first suggestion, check out one of the new breweries. They have gotten really popular, and there’s a few wineries around too. Pittsboro and Carboro are both areas that have gotten more popular and are very art/music oriented so there might be some festivals or something along those lines going on while you’re here. Food truck rodeos are big now too. I’m not sure where you’re having dinner but I’d take advantage of having Darling Husband to yourself while you still can. Get a massage together, do dinner, listen to some live music, go to the movies, whatever you find relaxing that allows you to truly enjoy having Darling Husband to yourself. Maybe you can spend a day at one of the lakes around, Jordan or Falls, just lay on the sand and pretend you’re at the beach, or if you have enough time head to Wilmington. My Darling Husband works in Wallace which is out near Wilmington (an hour and a half drive for him) and I went out there one Saturday with him and we went to a wine tour/tasting at Duplin Winery and then headed to Wilmington where we just walked around until we found a restaurant we wanted to check out, we ended up getting sushi and then later found ice cream at an old school candy shop. It was too cold to really check out the beach but it was just such a nice day to be together. Check out the farmer’s market, the new art museum, just walk around downtown and see where the day takes you. Good luck!!!

Do something cute during the day like a picnic, putt putt, something like that. 

And remeber to dance to your first dance song! We do this every anniversary 🙂

For the past few valentines days we’ve been taking day trips to somewhat local (<2 hrs) small towns. we just pick a town and do whatever they are known for and war at their “best” restaurant. We are not really big on “fancy” meals so this is a really fun way to get out and try some new casual restaurants. I love that it is low-key, but still a memorable, special day.
