This Is Why We Married Each Other

April 15, 2010

When we celebrated our anniversary yesterday, these are the cards we gave each other (I'll spare you the smooshy insides of the cards):

Doug's card to me

My card to Doug
Storybook beginning, storybook ending. Great minds think alike!

I love that we've decided to celebrate our anniversaries by exchanging small traditional anniversary gifts.

Year One: Paper
I typed up and framed our wedding vows (which we wrote for each other).
Doug gave me some fancy writing papers and books.

Year Two: Cotton
I gave Doug a t-shirt from the Robert Cray concert we went to.
Doug gave me beautifully soft and luxurious cotton sheets for our bed.

Year Three: LeatherWe got creative with this one. We both had a bit of a tough time coming up with something small--we don't do over-the-top for our anniversary--so we chose our own interpretation. We went out a wonderful restaurant called Rio Grill, a restaurant that features Brazilian waiters who bring out a never-ending supply of a variety of delectable meats--turkey-wrapped bacon, tri-tip, lamb, top sirloin, pepper steak, garlic steak, and parmesan encrusted chicken, just to name a sampling. Each serving is a bite or two, but you can try as many of the dishes as you like, and as often as you like. The meat is complemented by a beautiful salad and hot side dish bar. This delicious food, these tasty bites, we decided, were the cousins of the bovine that would eventually become someone's leather belt. How's that for creative interpretation?
