8 Years and Counting

Yup, today is our 8 year anniversary. Still going strong. Call me sappy, I don't care. We're literally more in love every year. And what, pray tell, does one get on one's 8th Anniversary? Well, apparantly the traditional gift is bronze. What the crap? We've never really done the traditional thing.

If you're my husband, 8 years of marraige gets you a sweet little card with messages from your girls, a yummy dinner (that is fully prepped, but you have to grill) and a wife that shaved, put on a lovely summer dress, did her hair and dabbed on some make-up before you came home from work today.

And if you're married to Jason, 8 years of marraige gets you.... a stop at the flower shop on the way home from work, but they were closed soooooo....nothing. Oh wait, it gets you a second effort trip out while you put the babe to bed that results in a redbox and dessert from Fogarty's.

It may not sound exciting to some folks, but it really is grand.

And by the way, our real celebration takes place at the end of September. We decided to forgo presents for anniversary and birthdays this year and instead take a weekend trip to NH and go on an extreme zipline/suspension bridge/rappel canopy tour. AWESOME!

It sounds like you had a wonderful anniversary, Sarah! Congrats on 8 wonderful years together. Time sure does fly, doesnt it? Tom and I are on 11 years and it feels like our wedding was just last week! Enjoy your trip in September, what an awesome gift to each other!! :)

Happy Anniversary! I thought it was cool that it was your 8th anniversary and the date was 8/8. Just call me weird. But you two are a wonderful couple, and I am so happy for you!
