For our 10th anniversary I had all these grand
plans dreams for how we would celebrate. I mean we made it a decade with one another and we still want to be married, while most marriages don’t make it four years.
An anniversary to remember or forget
It was going to be an epic anniversary and celebration. Vow renewal, a great gift, a trip to an island, all accompanied by the family and friends who have meant so much to us throughout our marriage. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen that way. In fact, I can’t even remember what we did on our 10th wedding anniversary.
Ultimately, we “postponed” our grand anniversary plans to anniversary #11. When it didn’t happen that year, we just left it as “we’ll do it one day.” Sometimes the more anniversaries that you “celebrate” the less extravagant and more mundane it happens to be. It becomes just another day in marriage.
An anniversary just like every other day
Huffington Post contributor Brittany Gibbons showed us this with her video titled, “A Day in Marriage,” which chronicled her 9th anniversary via her iPhone. The ironic thing about it is both her and her husband forgot their anniversary, until the night before. Upon which they both thought it was their 10th anniversary! LOL
Check out their anniversary video, “A Day in Marriage.”
What are some creative ways to make each anniversary more than a day in marriage?
