This month we celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary. We didn't go out to a fancy 5 star restaurant, exchange expensive gifts or spent a weekend at some high class resort hotel. Renaissance Man and I celebrated our wedding anniversary by going out to breakfast and later taking Moe to lunch with us....our usual Saturday morning ritual for almost 10 years.
I felt a bit guilty for not doing something different for our anniversary, especially when I hear friends or family recount how they celebrated their anniversary. Truthfully, I've never made a big deal out of it. This year, I felt I should make more an effort to plan something special for our anniversary.
I asked RM if he wanted to do anything different this year. His response?
"For 18 years, you have conditioned me to make YOUR birthday more important than our anniversary. Why change now?"
He's right. My birthday is definitely more important.
Happy Anniversary RM! We don't need one special day to celebrate our anniversary...we celebrate it every Saturday morning.
