An anniversary is a momentous occasion for any couple. It marks another year you have spent together, and it deserves celebration. My husband and I have been married only 4 years, but in that time, we’ve sure had some memorable anniversaries!

Take our first anniversary. When we got married, we didn’t have much money left over for a big honeymoon and so we had planned to take a belated honeymoon on our first anniversary. What we didn’t plan on was getting pregnant 6 months into being married! So rather than spend that money on a lavish vacation, we started spending it on baby items. I was a little sad that my dreams of laying out on a beach with a frozen drink were gone, but I was ok with laying on the couch with a tub of ice cream instead. Little did I know, my amazing husband planned a mini vacation for us and surprised me with a 2 night little getaway complete with a pre-natal massage and all of our meals through room service so that I could relax and stay in my jammies all weekend…a pregnant momma’s dream come true! I’ve never been so surprised by my husband’s thoughtfulness, and I think it will go down in our books as the best anniversary present.
Coming later this summer is a movie about just that. Sony Pictures Presents “Hope Springs”, a new comedy from the director of “The Devil Wears Prada” starring Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones, and Steve Carell about a couple in a bit of a rut.
This movie would make the perfect date night for couples of all ages, and possibly a GREAT anniversary gift?
