It's our anniversary!

Well, yesterday was... and if we're friends on Facebook, you followed along with the first one I've actually spent with my husband since we said our vows five years ago!  

We both left work early to be able to get to Philadelphia for these guys - though he didn't know why that's why I told him he needed to leave early until he got home:

But before he got home from work, these were delivered (daisies are my favorite and were in my bridal bouquet!):

After the game, we went to our favorite old-school Italian restaurant, Ralph's on S. 9th in Philly for a late dinner and then headed home.  

If you're ever in Philly, you MUST try it - and the one on South 9th specifically.  There's a nice, new, fancy one in King of Prussia, and the food is just as good, but the atmosphere is at the Italian Market location.

When we got home, my husband hands me a box. His gifts have been something "traditional" each year, so I had absolutely no idea what to expect with the five year anniversary tradition being wood...  This brought tears to my eyes!  

So thoughtful - and he had to really work on finding this one!

Hallmark has a list of the traditional and modern gifts here.  So a discussion item - do you and your spouse stick to a list like this or just whatever works?


  1. Happy Anniversary! Y'all are mere babes...19 years around here a few months ago!:)

    1. Ha! We just got started late :) We've been together for 11 years, just took him a while to make it official!
