On Sunday, we watched our wedding video and ate a few bites of the leftover cake. It was still pretty good, but I was nervous to eat more than a bite or two. I always wondered why couples eat there cake on their first anniversary, so I searched online. Years ago, most couples had a baby by the time their first anniversary rolled around. They'd be busy planning a baptism and party, so they would save the cake to serve at the party following the christening! Interesting....
I also read that some couples keep a journal or special book where they record how they celebrated each anniversary. I gave B two sports banners to hang in our basement. One for the Lions and one for the Tigers. Both show the mascots as they've evolved over the years. We're kind of going with a sport's theme down there.
I found this book a few months ago, and I had planned to give it to B as part of his gift. I decided it would be perfect to keep a record of our anniversary celebrations!
Tomorrow is the anniversary of our first date. We won't do anything special (he lucked out that the two dates are so close!), but it will mark 5 years together. I couldn't be happier.
