It’s been six years since my husband and I first started going out! Hard to imagine but time has passed by so quickly. Last night we realized it was our anniversary after seeing a calendar notice actually. Pretty funny but sad in a way too since this year has gone by so fast. We both remember the date but just didn’t realize it. Our first reaction was to not do much since we’re trying to be frugal and save money of course. In the end we decided that it’s still important for us to celebrate even though it’s doing something simple.
Celebrating doesn’t have to cost very much or mean a fancy dinner where we have to dress in our finest. That’s of course what we did for our first anniversaries. Since then our priorities have changed and now its more about being together and celebrating in smaller ways. It’s nice to celebrate and focus on what really matters about the day.
Keeping it simple
Definitely didn’t want to do anything crazy! We have so much going on this year already and we finally have our honeymoon coming up in a couple of months too! It’s nice to go out and do something and not have to plan something huge too. Easy, stress-free, and relaxing. In this case super relaxing since it involved eating! One of our favorite pastimes of course.
Focusing on what really matters
By taking all the stress and craziness out of the situation then we could really focus on enjoying today. Well, technically we were working all day long so we really only celebrated for an hr or so. Either way since we kept it simple then we didn’t need to think of any details we missed and worry about a huge amount of money slipping through our fingers either.
Only six years in and all we’re doing to celebrate is a casual dinner? I wonder what will happen 20 years from now? 30 years from? And so on and on. No matter what I still want to make sure we always do something to celebrate. It’s the act that means a lot more than what you end up doing. Remembering all the good things that have passed and why we’re still together.
Some people go super extravagant when celebrating and others don’t even bother doing anything at all. I’m way past the extravagant part but celebrating is important to keeping the relationship well.
What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a celebration?
