Next Tuesday is our two year wedding anniversary.
Our anniversary came up fast this year and yesterday Ryan and I discussed traditional gifts that couples exchange on their second wedding anniversary.
Last year I told Ryan about the whole “traditional wedding gifts by year” thing and we both adhered to the paper theme for our first year anniversary. (I gave him a Met, Married, Engaged map and tickets to a hockey game.) For a couples’ two year wedding anniversary, the theme is cotton which stumped both of us at first.
Neither of us really care to receive sheets, towels or clothes and kind of want to make our anniversary gifts a little more lovey than practical. I have two ideas, but I need to get crackin’ if I’m going to have them ready in time! Any fun cotton-themed gift ideas out there? (Pinterest is seriously letting me down. A monogramed laundry bag? Really?)
I also have the idea to just wrap a normal gift in a sheet and give it to Ryan, but that seems like cheating. Sneaky!
Today’s lunch began with a handful of almonds and hazelnuts and ended with spring mix greens topped with salmon salad.
Plus a few sweet pickles on the side. Yum!
