Today is my 2 year anniversary with the BF. We had planned on celebrating at Hamachi House last night after my RWAC meeting but as luck would have it, the poor guy spent the day in bed sick as a dog. Needless to say we put dinner off (unless you count the yogurt and tea he managed to get down around 8 pm). We’ll exchange gifts and cards tonight and do dinner next Sunday if we can get a reservation, given that it’s Valentine’s Day and all.
The BF and I make a habit of wishing each other happy anniversary the 8th of every month. Maybe it’s a bit cheesy (my sister’s comment: ‘oh you still celebrate each month’ in a pandering tone that clearly said – ‘how cute’), but I think it’s important. It was a big day for both of us as we knew right from the get go (having been friends for nearly 2 years previous to this) that we were in this for the long haul and that it would be something significant. Neither of us took that lightly.
And given the roller coaster ride life has put the two of us on the past two years, celebrating that we made it with all the odds that kept stacking against us seems a small thing indeed. I hope even after we’re married we keep celebrating the 8th of every month. I think those little things are important and should never be overlooked because you're busy, or you think it doesn't matter.
Do you and your significant other celebrate any special dates?
Also, if you're interested, I've updated the Duly Knitted blog today as well.
