2 Things We Did Not Do for our 6th Wedding Anniversary


My husband and I turned 6 on August 16th!

Yaay for us!

(So now you’ll hear me talking about being in our 7th year of marriage! Hahaha. I love to stay current as far as our marriage-age is concerned.. not so much with my age! 🙂 )

Here’s a quick walk-down memory lane.

1. Make it overly expensive

Many birthdays, anniversaries and holidays down the line, we’ve learned that gifts and making special memories don’t have to cost an arm and a leg.

No problem if you want to splurge, but don’t confuse “expensive” with “special”!

I got my gift ideas from Pinterest, gave them my own special twist and tara!..and my man loved them!

(Take away: All you need to make special memories is a little bit of effort! )

2. Anniversary pics

We went out of town (sweet surprise from hubby) and had a fabulous time visiting places, exploring water fronts and learning  history.

But how to take nice photos of yourselves.. without doing selfies? 🙂 Mhh.

Much as I love photos, I don’t like stopping strangers and handing them my camera (aka my phone) to take photos of us !

Any ideas? Besides going into a studio!

Anyway, that’s our 6th anniversary story. Had a ball and looking forward to many more with my awesome guy!

Your turn! What are some of your favorite wedding anniversary memories?

  1. For my sixth anniversary, I went to McDonald’s and got chicken nuggets for us. Then we ate with hardly talking and then went to bed. And when I say we went to bed, I mean we went straight to sleep.
    It sounds like we were really angry with each other, but the truth is that our second son had been born two weeks earlier and we were both absolutely exhausted. My 10th anniversary is coming up in a few weeks though, so maybe we’ll do something awesome then.

    1. Wow! I am sure that was the best gift for both of you at that moment! I kind of can’t wrap my mind around that season yet! Hopefully, you’ll get to do something awesome on your tenth. Congratulations to you and your wife!

  2. Love the pictures! And your wedding hair – gorgeous! I love that you didn’t make your anniversary expensive. We’ll be celebrating our fifth in a few months and I *really* want to make it special… but not expensive. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Glad this inspired you Elise! Thank you for stopping by and congratulations on your upcoming 5th!

  3. I love the pictures you’ve shared with us, Ngina! But I especially like number 4. It shows a playfulness and trust that you have for each other that is simply priceless! 🙂 And congrats on your year 6 anniversary! You know what they say, God loves number 7! I pray it is a God-blessed year for the two of you!

    1. Thank you Beth! My husband likes to say I married up, haha, (he’s the more playful one in our marriage). And now I have an even better reason to stick with “7th year of marriage” story. God loves it! Thanks Beth.

  4. What beautiful pictures!
    My camera (a little point and shoot) has a timer on it, but you do need to find a good place to set it, which is not always an option when you go some place. But we have gotten some nice pictures from that.
    I have heard that if you ask someone to take a picture, you should ask someone who you think you can outrun, in case they decide to try to steal your camera. I don’t know if that’s a cynical thing to do–I’ve never known anyone to get their camera stolen like that–but it’s a thought.
    Since my husband and I haven’t changed too much, it seems like we mostly get pictures together when we are visiting extended family–we make them take the pictures.
    Thanks for the post.

    1. Hi Julie, I hadn’t thought about using the timer in our phones, i think it has the capacity..but we’d need to find a good place to prop the phone. that’s a good idea thanks. Find someone we can outrun, lol. That’s very funny. i think the person that came up with that might have had some experiences! Good idea too, taking photos during family meetings! thanks for the tips and sharing!
