Celebrating Four Years of Marriage

I love celebrating our anniversary. We never do anything super fancy or extravagant, but we always do at least a little something to celebrate and give each other little gifts. I've always given Jeff gifts that go with the traditional anniversary gift list, and Year 4 is "fruit and flowers."

Fruit and flowers was the hardest theme so far for me (1-3 were paper, cotton, and leather... much easier!), but I ended up buying Jeff a few months of Harry & David's "Fruit and Cheese of the Month" deliveries and we've really enjoyed it so far! In the first two deliveries, we've enjoyed delicious peaches, nectarines, goat cheese, and promontory cheese!

Jeff went with the theme this year as well. When I got home from work on our anniversary, there were a BUNCH of vases of flowers all over the house. They were in the living room, the kitchen, our bedroom, and even our bathroom! I was running around the house all excitedly looking at them all. Definitely one of the sweetest things he's ever done. :)


He also surprised me with an assortment of chocolate-covered fruits from The Chocolate Bar. Delicious!


Since I spent the weekend closest to our anniversary out of town at a bachelorette party, we ended up postponing our official anniversary celebration a bit. We eventually celebrating with dinner and a movie at Alamo Drafthouse (our first time to see a movie in a theater since Mother's Day 2012... we weren't intentionally avoiding going to the movies, but life happens!). We saw The Giver (one of my favorite books from grade school!) and enjoyed Alamo Drafthouse's Houston Restaurant Weeks menu (three courses of deliciousness!).

It was a little weird to celebrate our fourth anniversary knowing that on our next anniversary, we'll have a seven-month-old baby! We have four wonderful years behind us, but our biggest adventure is yet to come!
Travel Back in Time: Here's how we celebrating our first, second, and third anniversaries!


  1. Happy anniversary! Love that y'all are also doing the traditional gift route.

  2. Ahhh, that's so thoughtful. Jeff is such a sweet guy :)

    I like sharing an anniversary with you guys!!
