Year One

My first anniversary is coming up one week from today on July 3. I can hardly believe it. This time last year, I was going crazy with last minute wedding details. My mom and I planned and executed the entire wedding ourselves. At about this time, I was probably sitting on my front porch stenciling grapes on parasols and then running inside to construct wedding programs. Then, I took some time to run around town putting together a surprise gift basket for my mom's hotel room of local goodies. A day before the wedding, Mom and I were on the floor of my apartment putting together lavender bundle favors. There were just so many little details to cover!!! But it was a great wedding and I think everyone had a good time. I told Gary that by having our wedding on July 3, we would always have fireworks on our anniversary! Not a bad deal.

I'm taking suggestions for gift ideas for Gary at my crafting blog. (GARY---DON'T GO OVER THERE AND PEEK!)

It's hard to even remember back as far as my one-year anniversary, so I can't help you on gifts. We're at the point that we sometimes forget to even say "Happy Anniversary," but at least I know my hubby has thought about it, this year (our 25th is coming up) because he's mentioned it. Hey, that's better than, "Oops, what day were we married?"

Congratulations, Malady! My anniversary is coming up next month too (the 9th). Neither my husband nor I remember what we got each other as gifts that year. Isn't that terrible? I don't even know what to get hubby this year.

Thanks literary buddies!

Litty Kitty--May I ask what number anniversary you will be celebrating? I love the idea of trying to fit in a small gift with the traditional gift ideas.
