Congrats to our winner Jessica!
Every anniversary, Valentine’s Day or birthday I wait with baited breath to read the words my betrothed has written just for my eyes. And yes-in the 15 years we’ve been together (17 if you count years living in sin) I’ve saved every love letter he has ever written me . Those letters, those words get right to the center of my heart in a way that no shiny diamond possibly could. Because those words are personalized just for me- and they are a reminder of his love- which he is not all too comfortable demonstrating on a daily basis. We’ve come to the point in our marriage were anniversaries are celebrated through our spoken and written words– how many diamonds does one girl need and well my husband likes the gift of NO GIFT i.e. the less is more money in his pocket!)
In my anniversary card this year my husband writes, “Hopefully we’ll spend the next 30 or so years together”– I think– REALLY?! What happened to, ” Till death do we part?!- I guess he’s looking for an opening?!
But this year feels monumental- 15 years with the same face, 15 years of navigating another person’s bodily functions, feelings and breaking through emotional barriers. This year what I really want to do is give my husband an experience. I want to create a lasting memory for him, one that when he is walking our dog in 18 degree weather he can think of which will make him feel all warm and gooey inside ( and not want to strangle me for getting another dog) which brings me to MY GIVEAWAY- A $100 gift card to get your very own EXPERIENCE at Xperiencedays.com.
This year, give your significant other a chance to fly a plane, sail a boat, learn to paint, paddleboard in the ocean, soar through the air on a trapeze, drive a racecar and more! Let’s face it; an afternoon spent watching your partner get to ride in a NASCAR is a lot more exciting and memorable than giving them another sweater!
