Happy Anniversary to Us!

Hey there!

In a week we'll be celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary which seems like only a blip on the map when you consider that this year both sets of our parents are celebrating 31 years together.  While it's not 31, it is every bit as significant especially these days when separating or getting divorced is the norm.  I am feeling very lucky and accomplished that we've held strong and looking forward to following in our parents' footsteps.

We've been by each other's side through ridiculous, joyful, sad and frustrating times and weathered some not-so-perfect storms.  We met as young, fun and slightly immature kids and evolved into older, slightly less fun and still pretty immature parents.  While we're not the same people we were when we met and are still learning who we are, there's absolutely no one I'd rather have by my side.

We have plenty of traditions.  For every year we're married I get another diamond set in my eternity band.  It's an inexpensive but monumental occasion when the tiny stone is set in my gold band.  It's also a constant reminder of where we've been and where we're headed. Josh usually gets a handmade item like the beer labels for his homebrew from our first anniversary, although this year I'm at a loss.

We're celebrating by spending a few nights of adult time at one of our favorite places, Edgefield.  It's a perfect combination of many of the things we love - beer, history, games and music.  We've had some good times there and I couldn't think of a better place to ring in 4 years of married life.

What do you guys do to celebrate?  Do you have a sentimental place you like to visit or an activity you like to do?  Have any suggestions for a good handmade gift to signify 4 years of marriage?  {I love these ideas compiled by TiptoeThrough.}

Until next time,
