We've got big plans to travel to New York City in April to celebrate, but we also wanted to have a little fun on the actual date of our anniversary, so we exchanged gifts before heading out for the afternoon. The traditional first anniversary gift is "paper," so we tried to stick to that as the basis for our gifts to each other.
Joshua's gift to me? A Starbucks cup that he decorated himself!
|What was inside? A Starbucks gift card and a cheapo watch (as a joke) that Josh found on one of his buses (which is the modern first anniversary gift).|
|He re-loaded my old Starbucks card and attached a pile of Post-Its. He said whenever I want him to do anything, I just write my request on it and he'll do it, no questions asked. :)|
|I "delivered" them in this cute mailbox from Target.|
|He loved it!|
|I never get dressed up to go anywhere, so today was my one chance!|
|I even blow-dried my hair and put on make-up!|
|Riding one of D.C.'s many eternal escalators.|
|Haha! He thought I was going to make a funny face and I thought he was going to make a serious face. Oh well. :)|
So that's what we did to celebrate our first year of marriage! We can't wait to keep the celebration going in April when we spend a weekend in NYC! :)
