Yesterday was my sixth wedding anniversary, and this is probably my favorite candid photo from our big day.
We had received the wedding Pez dispensers as a gag gift from a friend, but it so accurately captured our silliness that we used it as our cake topper (in this photo, my husband is pointing out that his ears closely match that of the Pez groom).
In the six years we've been married, we've never really celebrated our anniversary because Wavey's birthday and Father's Day are both so close that we've always been wrapped up in doing other things for those ocassions. This year, we decided to go to brunch - just us! - and then I got to pick out this little number:
Not bad for holding out six years before getting an anniversary gift! Though, I should mention that the hold-out was entirely self-imposed. I'd been the one who ruled "no gifts" all these years because we had babies on the way, renovations to make, tuition bills, or just life's more-practical-than-jewelry expenses.
But, this ring was worth breaking the rules.
