The Anniversary Month

Monday, 1 August, 2011

August is our anniversary month. We’ll be celebrating our fourth year on the 25th. So as early as now, I am happy and excited. Happy first day of August everyone!

We planned to have a 4-week celebration this year all throughout August. And for the first week, we’ll watch โ€œThe Goddesses of Rockโ€ featuring Barbie Almalbis and Kitchie Nadal. No plans yet for the next weeks to come but I’ll be happy to spend it in resto-hopping and MTG shopping. I love food trips and booster trips!

And as for gifts, I have no idea of what to give him yet. While guys can easily check online florist website for a bouquet of flower, ladies have limited online resources. Or should I say, lesser options? I mean, it’s easier to buy gifts for women than for men. Anyway, if it’s for someone you love, then you will definitely exert extra effort and time to give him or her something special, right? I’ll do anything for my man!

Wedding Anniversaries

Friday, 29 October, 2010

My parents have been married for 26 years and I am a living witness of their happy and successful relationship. I’m lucky to be their eldest daughter. Having five siblings and being born to a middle-class family is such a wonderful blessing from above. Why not, our parents only think of our future by loving us selflessly and providing our needs. And I wonder, do they still have time to celebrate on their own? My father is a farmer, my mother is a vegetable vendor. She sells what we harvest from the field. During busy days, you can find them weeding and fertilizing the crops. They always work hard. Together.

I admire my parents so much. They are not motivated by the material things around them. They are inspired by their kids’ achievements. They speak the language of love in a different way. I can’t remember our gifts to them when they celebrated their silver wedding anniversary last year. It’s not a grand celebration anyway, just the family members feasting on home-made dishes. The simplicity of our life is incomparable to others.

How about the others? What are the sources of their happiness? I am intrigued by the life of rich and famous people. How does an elite celebrate his or her birthday, graduation day, or the tenth wedding anniversary? I guess it’s always grand and splendid. But I have doubts if it can make them truly happy. Real accomplishment can’t be seen on your possessions but on your relationships.

When I get married, I want it to last forever. I want to look forward to every anniversary and celebrate it with simplicity just like what my parents are doing. My husband need not say “I love you” through a bouquet of roses, I’d rather feel it through hugs and kisses.

Lovely roses, as sweet as you!

Gift-giving during special occasion is actually a good practice though the success of celebration does not solely depends on it. When shopping for wedding anniversary gifts by year, something that symbolizes the couple, what they’ve been through and what they really like can be a perfect gift. After all, it’s the thought that counts. So go ahead and celebrate your tenth wedding anniversary in any way you like!
