April 15, 2020 – The Leather year. (Seriously, who comes up with these?)
We have been married three years. How has it possible? This year has definitely been the most monumental because we welcomed our beautiful daughter Amelia into the world! All the other events that took place in this year of marriage don’t even compare to the magic that is motherhood.
This year our anniversary fell right in the middle of Nueces County’s Stay at Home order during the COVID-19 pandemic. So we kept it simple and kept with our traditions. We watched our wedding video and toasted to a wonderful year and to all the adventures to come in year four of marriage.
This year’s traditional gift was leather and true to form Krystal and I gave each other the same gift from Etsy (duh!). Although the “traditional” gifts sometimes seem a little odd. I have to admit I really like doing it. First of all, it takes the guess work out of trying to find a romantic gift and really limits your options. It also provides an opportunity to give a gift you might never have thought of. We both got each other Apple Watch Bands with a message stamped on the inside. Although, it might seem basic every morning when I put on my watch I read, “I Love You Always – Krystal” and it warms my heart.
Next year is fruit and flowers…any suggestions? Ideas on how to get creative with it?
