When “I” became “Us”

Happy 10 years “dating” and 4 years marriage anniversary to us!  OMG!  We look like babies here.  So much has changed in the last 10 years.  We’ve graduated college, started our careers, lived in a couple of states, got married, gained a beautiful daughter, and purchased our first home.  Wow,  words cannot begin to describe how blessed I am to be able to go on this journey with this hardworking and loving fella.  Sadie and I love you to the moon and back!

This year, we wanted to include Sadie in our anniversary shenanigans, and having a picnic was a wonderful way to do it!  It was great to be able to spend quality time alone as a family, especially with our conflicting work schedules.  For our picnic, I packed us some sandwiches, pasta salad, and fruits.  Wine for us and water with strawberries for Sadie 🙂 .  We had such a blast playing and laughing at her silliness.  This day was definitely one for the books!

Here are 15 fun ideas if you’re wanting to plan something special for your loved one:

  • Go dancing – I’m still working on getting Tony to go salsa dancing with me :/
  • Take a cooking/pottery/painting class
  • Wine tasting
  • Brunch/lunch date – brunch is my favorite meal of the day 🙂
  • Relive your first date
  • Plan a staycation
  • Attend an outdoor concert
  • Take a road trip or mini getaway

  • Get a couple’s massage
