My husband and I are coming up on our eight year anniversary next month, July 16th to be exact. Every anniversary we’ve had, has been totally different than the one before. Our first anniversary, we were stationed in California which was 1500 miles away from our families in Texas. So, we spent that time flying to see them, eating our old wedding cake, and frantically trying to see all of our friends in a short time. Needless to say it was hectic!
The next few anniversaries were also while we were stationed in California. We celebrated by visiting new places in Southern California, cramming as much as we could in. Then my husband got sick, so we spent a couple in and out of hospitals (read more of that here). The last few years, we haven’t been able to celebrate since my husband has a very tight work schedule forcing him to work at odd hours and days.
So, for our eight year we wanted to do something special. We’ve spent weeks trying to find the perfect place to go, and then it hit us, the perfect place to go was home. Yes, we will be celebrating our anniversary vacation at home! July is going to be so busy, so we decided do it in June so we can really have a stress free, low key, enjoyable time. Bonus, we will even be knocking out some stuff on our Summer To Do List!
