Anniversary Traditions

When our 1st wedding anniversary approached, we wanted a more symbolic gift to represent our love; not some trendy gadget that would be stuffed in a drawer a year later, or a pair of earrings that would likely roll off the bureau. I like to think that our solution was slightly genius; not copyright worthy but at the very least worthy of sharing with you!

Each year we purchase a piece of art together.  One year it was an original painting, another year it was a handmade vase.  And now after 11 years, we’ve amassed a very sweet and lovely collection of art that reminds us of that particular year together.   Perhaps it was the time we spent the day in San Francisco, or it was the short time when we lived in Oregon.

It’s a very special tradition to us and I’d love to hear what tradition you’re thinking of starting!
