Tell The Truth Thursday - Anniversaries

Today's Tell the Truth Thursday question is....

    What was one of your most favorite wedding anniversaries or where is your dream anniversary?

My husband Pat and I have been married for 11 years and the two most memorable anniversaries I can remember are our 1st anniversary and our 5th anniversary.

On our 1st anniversary, I was 9 months pregnant and I was swollen and ready to be done being pregnant.  But I was also excited about the future and starting our family.  I couldn't wait to share in that tradition of having some wedding cake on our anniversary.  We had carefully saved the top of our wedding cake (raspberry by the way) for a whole year.  We took it out of the freezer and I thought Pat had the bottom of the container and he thought I had it.  CRASH!  The cake fell to the floor and collapsed into pieces.  I was devastated.  I thought it was a omen for our marriage.  I really, really wanted some of that cake.  But, it wasn't meant to be.  We can laugh at it now....sort of.  I still really want some of that cake!

Our 5th anniversary was spent in New York City.  Not because of our anniversary, but because my husband had a business trip out there at the same time.  So, I tagged along and we celebrated in style and had a blast.  The company found out it was our anniversary and treated us to champagne and strawberries dipped in chocolate.  YUM!  With 2 toddlers at home, it was such a treat for us to be away together in such a fabulous city!

How about you?  What was your favorite anniversary celebration?  To read about other's anniversary stories, go to The Redhead Riter.
