How To Celebrate Your Anniversary

by Mary M. Alward

Always celebrate your anniversary! This is a time to honor the love that you share with your partner. It is a time to commemorate the hills and valleys that you have conquered in your married life. It confirms your commitment to your spouse and allows a glimpse into the future and a look back into the past, especially to your wedding day.

There are hundreds of ways to celebrate your anniversary. If you’ve been together a number of years, consider renewing your vows. If it is your first anniversary, this is a time to celebrate your love and your first year together. Tenth, fifteenth and twentieth anniversaries and all five year segments above that are milestones. Be sure to celebrate accordingly.

Here are a few ideas to help you celebrate your special day:


Wedding Day Memories

If you were married in recent years, you probably had a video made of your wedding day. Cuddle up on the couch and watch it. You’ll be amazed at the small details that you’ve forgotten.

If you were married before the days of wedding videos, take out your wedding album and look through the photos of the big day. You will love reliving the special memories.


Romantic Getaway

Go on a romantic getaway whether it’s for a night, a weekend, or a full vacation. Bed and breakfasts are a perfect spot for a romantic weekend. Try to choose one that is near a lake or other secluded area where you can stroll hand in hand and enjoy each other’s company. This makes the experience much more intimate.


Paint the Town

Invite your spouse out on a date. Make reservation for a romantic candlelight dinner and then go to a romantic movie or enjoy drinks in a secluded corner of your favorite bar. Take a moonlight stroll along a beach holding hands or go dancing in a romantic atmosphere. Whatever you choose, find magic in your moments together.


Second Honeymoon

Take a second honeymoon to a destination that you have both always wanted to visit. Whether your trip is to an exotic destination or a rustic cabin, it will allow you to enjoy intimacy in a special, private setting.


Stay Home

Lock the door, turn on the answering machine, build a fire in the fireplace, and light aromatherapy candles to create a romantic atmosphere. Cuddle up and share memories of your wedding day and discuss plans for the future. Relax, laugh, kiss and enjoy each other’s company.


Go on a Picnic

Get up in the morning, pack a picnic hamper with your favorite foods and head to a secluded spot in the country. A spot where a waterfall cascades into a tranquil pool or a meadow where wildflowers bloom is a perfect setting for an anniversary picnic.


In Conclusion

What is right for your anniversary is totally up to you. Remember the most important thing - enjoy each other’s company. A special date or just quiet time together is the ticket to a memorable anniversary celebration.
