Krista and I have been married for 16 years. It’s been a great ride that we never would have survived without each other.
It’s important to celebrate your anniversary. (If you don’t believe me, just try missing one on purpose. I’ll offer you a discount on marital counseling.) Some years, you go simple. Other years, more extravagant. No matter what, most couples would tell you that you can’t miss it.
But how do you keep it significant? Meaningful?
I’ve found that to have a successful anniversary celebration, you need to do something bigger than big. It has to be something personal. I’m not married to everyone in the world; I’m married to the best girl in the world. She has a name and interests and passions. I wanted to find something that celebrates her
insane choice to marry me so many years ago that says “Thank you”, “I Love You” and so much more.
So what did I choose this year?
I almost landed on a couples massage. That would have worked, but that’s not super cheap. They also had no openings on the day of our anniversary. That’s when I found Personalization Mall.
They offer all sorts of things that you can make special for your anniversary. I ended up ordering this frame and Krista loved it. We organized our favorite pictures in an iCloud album and then printed them (sometimes 2 or 3 times due to sizing) and had a blast putting it together.
The finished product? It turned out pretty good, despite my mug being in there.
If you want a meaningful anniversary celebration, don’t just do the generic. Do something specifically personal. It will last a lifetime.
(PS – Krista’s had different hair styles over the years and they all look good. But what was I thinking letting mine grow out? Sheesh)
