  1. Happy anniversary! My husband and I like to mix up our celebrations -- sometimes it's a fun trip and other times it's low-key and relaxing. Just being together truly is the best part. Have a great weekend!

  2. Wow! Happy anniversary! My ideal date is making a Christmas bed in front of the tv, getting some romantic dvd's and sushi and just chilling. Well, that's not an ideal Spring date is it?

    I took my beau to a Lion Park for our one year anniversary last weekend. It was so much fun!
