Wood or Silverware?

Today is our 5 year Anniversary! 

I can’t believe it… where did the time go? Oh yes, now I remember… three moves, two homes, and a baby.

Everyone has been asking if we are doing anything special. Yes, but I have no idea! Stephan has planned something exciting – but it’s a secret. All I know is that I have to wear a fancy dress, and be ready to go by 6:15pm tonight. Kendall is going to Mimi and Big “G” ‘s house for the night, and I’ll pick her up in the morning.  I sure an getting excited and will update you with the details next soon!

So, I titled this post “Wood or Silverware” because this is the suggested “guidance for appropriate or traditional” gifts for the spouses to give each other.  So, is it bad luck not to incorporate this into your gift? I have no idea what to get Stephan, but I’m almost 100% I can’t fit in wood or silverware into the mix. What’s a girl to do?

Well – While I’m thinking about what to get the most amazing man who has everything he could want, you can check out some of my favorite wedding photos!
