Today Chris and I celebrated our fourth anniversary of marriage as well as our 8th anniversary together (yep–we were married on the anniversary of our first date!). We didn’t do anything fancy. Chris took the day off of work, and we spent it chasing Roman through the playground and walking around our neighborhood as a family.
Chris had some really lovely ideas for things that we could have done just the two of us, but that kind of time can be difficult to coordinate. And while doing those things would have been nice, it felt totally fitting that we spent the day with our son. He did surprise me with an incredibly thoughtful gift, though: a replica of my bridal bouquet. I loved the one I carried four years ago, and this one was a beautiful reminder of that day.
