    one year wedding anniversary

    Well I'm kinda awful at planning these things but KP's and my 1 year wedding anniversary is on the 17th of May. I know there are quite a few people here who have been in committed relationships, handfastings, marriages for a long time what are somethings you guys do to celebrate? Any suggestions for me?

    You can plan a trip on your wedding anniversary. Florida would be the best place for that. I had given a destination wedding reception party at a beautiful beach in Florida and everyone loved it. It was a splendid day.

    Honestly, we don't generally do anything for our anniversary except maybe go to dinner. Or for birthdays or Valentines day...
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Get drunk and engage in a "fertility ritual."
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    Aww, congratulations! If a trip isn't possible, maybe just get a room at a hotel in town. A room with a jacuzzi would make it extra special, if you don't have one at home. Some hotels have romance packages, which include stuff like champagne and flowers.

    We went to the Gold Coast and visited SeaWorld for our first anniversary. Now we just go out to dinner.

    Re: one year wedding anniversary

    Congratulations!

    We tend to have a really good or "fancy" dinner, and also do some sort of activity (billiards, movie, concert) etc. Simple and special. Without knowing your budget/travel availability/personalities, that's about all the advice I can offer lol.

    Re: one year wedding anniversary

    I know this is late but it can be used by others with the same question.
    Write a note. Start with thanking her mother for giving her life, her father for giving her to you, and her for all that she adds to your life.
    Take the time to ponder what you will write and the words you choose to use. This is a ritual that I use in my life and my wife appreciates it more than a night out or a trip of distractions.
