- Wedding: June 2011
Wow! I can’t believe it’s been a year already! Not like we haven’t had issues come up throughout the year, but I’m really proud of us. We went through a lot of changes this year, and I think we’ve overall done really well.
So Monday is our first anniversary! I took a personal day off work, but I don’t know what we should do honestly. We mentioned that we will give each other little gifts, but I’m not quite sure what to get him. We’re posted abroad so we don’t have access to a lot of things.
What did you do on your first anniversary? Did you go out to dinner? Cook at home? Anything else special? On Saturday, we’re going to a Diamond Jubilee party at a local British Expat club (We’re Americans but it’s a great excuse to actually “tart it up” in a party dress in Afghanistan.) so I think maybe I should just plan to cook a nice dinner at home. Maybe make some sangria or something. I thought maybe I’d get him a cool t-shirt or something. I don’t know, do you think this is enough?
I know that Anniversary 1 is “paper” but we literally just dropped like 4400 USD on plane tickets to visit America, not to mention the big anniversary party we’re having with friends and family on July 1. (we didn’t invite anyone to our wedding, this was the compromise)
