Our wedding anniversary is next weekend! I still can't believe it. I am so excited I could fist pump
We are going on a little stay-cation to a resort right in Austin. Massages, champagne, and eating the (probably gross) top tier of our wedding cake. We are ready to relax! We are also going to San Francisco two weeks later as a belated anniversary/Valentine's trip so that will be fun!
Traditionally, one gets their spouse some sort of paper gift on their 1st wedding anniversary. This custom goes way back and I am all about traditions. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a six pence in your shoe...yep that was me. So anyway...I already have Jon's gift ready to rock, I think that is why I am so giddy about our anniversary because I can't wait to give it to him! I've had it for awhile. You will just have to wait to see what it is!
I was at a cookie exchange with my madre over the holidays and the ladies were talking about the traditional anniversary gifts. Here is an example of the "big" anniversaries...
(you can see the in-between years here)
I was laughing trying to think of what Jon would get me, I mean besides a card which is obviously made out of paper, and my mom reminded me that money is made out of paper. Haha. Can you imagine, "hi honey, happy anniversary, here is a Benjamin". Especially funny since we share money too. Jon...no dinero for our anniversary please :-).
Since I love traditions, I wanted to know what you have done for anniversary gifts in the past. Or if you aren't married/married but haven't gotten to your anniversary yet, can you think of good ideas? What should I get Jon next year? Cotton long Johns?
