Gil and I decided a long time ago that neither of us had any desire to celebrate things like anniversaries or Valentine’s Day. It’s just not really our style. Maybe if we get married someday I’ll feel differently, but for now this is what works for us. We celebrate throughout the year with random gifts and acts of kindness. Plus we both hate crowds and a heightened sense of pressure.
That being said, yesterday was someone else’s wedding anniversary – which means it was the anniversary of the day we met (we were seated across from each other at that wedding).
We ended up getting to hang out with both of our families yesterday, and had a quiet little moment together at the ocean watching the sunset – timing just worked out that way and it was perfect. So while we don’t do formal “celebrations,” it was a pretty amazing day and it did get me reflecting on what an incredible year it’s been.
So in the spirit of being the sappiest of the sappy, I put together a little video to commemorate the last 12 months. Can’t wait to see what the next year holds!
