Four years ago today, Adam and I attended a huge party that my parents hosted and danced all night. Sure, a wedding day is swell (and damn expensive) but we don’t hold it to a extremely high standard. When it came to the wedding, I actually didn’t really care. My mom and I got into one fight while we were planning. She actually got frustrated because of my lack of interest. Napkin color? Cake? Flowers? Not my thing. Adam was, and still is, my thing.
That’s how we treat anniversaries too. We don’t do fancy dinners. No jewelry. No champagne (although we regularly drink mimosas). It’s a great day to remember but it’s the day-to-day that fills up your life and makes memories.
He’s pretty wonderful. Every day.
