  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  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. 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.
