Howdy peeps! How is everyone today? I have been having a really bizarre day. One of those days that you have to ask yourself, “Is this actually happening?” You know what I mean right?
Anywho… Today I would like to talk to you about traditions. Specifically: Wedding Anniversaries
On January 28th, Dan and I will be celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary (19!!). Considering Christmas was just a month ago and Allyson’s b-day is 2 weeks later, I don’t normally make a big deal out of it. Yeah Valentine’s Day is in there too but I don’t make a big deal about that one either. Last year, we went to the car show in Philly. Next year, we will celebrate BIG!
I want to do something but I do not know what. I was wondering what the traditional gift theme was for the BIG 19. So off to Google I went. Do you know what it is? Chili Pepper.
(Sadly, not this kind of Chili’s)
Yep… SO do I cook up a spicy dinner? I was thinking about making a romantic dinner but then I thought maybe I would save that for V-Day.
Keep looking Mare…
Some of the “modern” themes are bronze and aquamarine. Who comes up with this stuff? I do not see how any of the three items are related… I clicked on the link for “ideas” and it seams they prefer the bronze theme because this what is says:
Your 19th wedding anniversary is a great time to remind yourselves again how strong and durable your marriage is. Below are examples to help you with your 19th wedding anniversary gift ideas:

The only thing that has come out of this list is now I am obsessing over getting a bronze statue for my home and the need will not go away until I:
a.) get one and at a bargain
b.) become fixated on something else
So, I think I will play it by ear this year… not overthink this and see where the day takes us. Sometimes those are the best days of all.
Do you stay with tradition of special events like birthdays/anniversaries or do you wing it?
