  1. Oh my goodness I am in love… With your blog!!! Thank you for posting! I just randomly stumbled upon this blog and I am so glad that I did!
    I am following you and can’t wait to read more. I am a new blogger and I’m having so much fun with it!
    Hope that you have a great week!

  2. I LOVE all these ideas. But one in particular are the cards, for 2nd anniversary! Did you girls make those? If so, where can i get them? or are they downloadable?? LOVE them. Please email me and let me know where i can get them. Love you girls, love this website.

  3. H and I just celebrated our 21st year of marriage. I took the 1derful year idea and made it into 21derful years. I made him a gift where I wrote a list of memories from each year we have been married. I printed them on card stock and cut them out and put them in a jar on his desk with a little secret help from his office partner. He loved IT! Thanks for helping

  4. The thirtieth anniversary is the \pearl.\ My Dad had 30 people write a \pearl of wisdom\ they learned from my Mom and each person sent them the 30 days before their anniversary. He gave each person a fake pearl to include in the letter.

    He was the 30th person and gave her the 30 pearls as well as a real strand of pearls. So proud that he came up with that all on his own!

  5. I started an Anniversary Journal for my husband when we got married. Each year I write about / list my favorite memories from the year and include a picture of us together. We have faced some difficult challenges together as well through the years. I don’t rehash those, but include my gratitude for his support. I also glue in a penny from that year in the corner of the page. (For our 5 year I did a nickel and for our 10 year I did a dime!) It has become a treasure and I always look forward to adding to it! Looking forward to adding a quarter soon!

  6. I was kind of bummed, after getting all excited when I saw this on Pinterest, and scrolling down the years fast as I could, not to find anything for 15 years. My husband & I will celebrate 15 years of marriage next month. 🙂
    Nothing between 10 & 20 years. A decade is a long time to go without any special recognition! Every one of those years is an accomplishment, and much to celebrate!

  7. Love these! My 1 year wedding anniversary is coming up and I’d love to make the CD cover, where do I customize one? Is there a company that will create for me to make it look as professional as your example pic? Thanks!!

  8. Our song is Love will keep us alive from the eagles… for the first anniversary i said we were going out and then went to an eagles concert and presented him with “paper” tickets to get in the concert. We are celebrating #8 on Oct 30, and that is still my favorite one we have done!

  9. I love your ideas. These would be nice to include as a shower gift. We will celebrate 40 years a few weeks after Christmas. Do you have any good ideas for making 40 special?

  10. I was excited when I found this and then disappointed when you quit going year by year after 10! All those other anniversaries are important and do have details as well….

    1. Holly – you can still celebrate ANY anniversary after 10 years.. by using these ideas. Use the “4” ideas for “40 years”… the “2” ideas for “22nd” and etc. We just give the tools to get the ideas spinning. 🙂

  11. Thank you for the ideas! My 1 year anniversary is in a couple weeks & I’d love to make the CD cover. Do you have a company or website to reference for the fantastic example pic? Thank you SO much!!

  12. Just want to say I just love your ideas , but we are getting ready to celebrate our 23 rd wedding anniversary on the 24 of this month and I need gift ideas for him can you please help

    1. Avas, after a lot of research it turns out these cards were just a set owned by the gal who wrote the post and she doesn’t have them anymore! Darn it! We are trying to find something similar because they are definitely so cute!
