Every year on our anniversary, Brandon and I sit and reminisce about our years together. We always recap our years of wedded bliss and remember where we were on each anniversary.
Thanksgiving is not the best time for a wedding anniversary and we aren't ever really sure how to celebrate anyway, but we always have a nice dinner and this fun recap.
Our first 10 months of marriage we were living in Salt Lake City near Trolley Square. I was working full-time and going to school part-time. Brandon was working part-time and going to school part-time. In late September we left for Nepal for three months. We spent our anniversary there. ON our anniversary we were on a kayaking trip. The next day we returned to Kathmandu and went out for a fancy dinner of water buffalo steaks with some of our kayaking buddies.
Our second year of marriage was spent living half with Brandon's dad in southern Salt Lake City and half in an apartment in the Sugar House area of SLC. We got our ferret that year and were always entertained by her antics, especially with the cat.
Our third, fourth, and fifth years of marriage were spent living in Laie, Hawaii. Those years are so hard to tell apart because there are no seasons to differentiate the memories by.
Our next four years of marriage were spent living in Oklahoma. My favorite anniversary memory from those years is the year of the blizzard. Brandon and I were driving to Illinois for Thanksgiving on our anniversary. We got into a blizzard on the way that slowed traffic to a snail's pace. We decided to get off in Normal, IL. The first four motels we stopped at were full. We drove further into town and found a beautiful hotel called Le Chateau or something that we thought we would not be able to afford. Not only were there rooms available, but the price was right and we spend a romantic evening eating pizza and watching tv.
Next year maybe I'll tell you all the story of our young romance and our wedding.
