A Trip Down Memory Lane!

My hubby and I were dreaming of a cruise for our 10 year, but I lost my job and there went those plans. lol. We decided to take a "trip down memory lane" and comprised a 2 day "staycation", visiting places that were special to us when we were dating or in our "journey" and taking a pic at each one. We went to a movie theater we frequently visited while dating, then hit the fast food joint we ate at the night he proposed (he knew if he took me somewhere fancy I'd know what was happening), then the park where he proposed, the church where we said "I Do" and that night after a nice anniversary dinner we stayed the night in the hotel where we stayed after our wedding. We watched our wedding video that night and laughed about how young we were, lol. The next day we decided to make "new" milestones and visit new places :-) It turned out being really fun and spurred lots of "remembrance" conversations. Editor's Note: What a wonderful way to celebrate your anniversary!

Aluminum Bracelet

My hubby & I are approaching our 10 yr. We don't have the money for any big trip as we dreamed of, so I am going traditional… I am getting him an aluminum bracelet with the latitude/longitude coordinates of where we got married stamped on the outside, and 'I still do' stamped on the inside for only his eyes. :)

Tin, Metal - My Interpretation

Hubby & I celebrated 10 years married by renewing our wedding vows before presenting each other with keys to a new motorbike each. Every Sunday since then has been "our" time - and sometimes we take our sons as our pillion passengers.

Does a New A/C Unit Count?

That's what our gift is ... nice. Can't wait to see what happens at 15. A new roof? I didn't want to go on vacation anyway....

Ten Years!

Never thought I would be in a relationship this long. Helps when you meet your true soul mate. One of the suggestions was for wine. One of our favorite bands is train and they have their own wine label. So he is getting a case of train wine varieties which I will wrap in foil. Five days til our anniversary. I can't wait!!

Tin Can and Poem

My late father gave my step-mother a very special gift that I'd like to share with your readers. They didn't have much money, so he used a can opener on a can of soup or beans and he wrote a poem. He glued the tin can lid above the poem and put it in a frame. My step-mom hung it by the front door, where I remember glancing at it for 17 years. As my 10th anniversary approaches, I'm looking forward to making this same gift for my husband. I hope my father's idea will make another couple as happy as he was. Thanks for letting me share this special memory.
