While your first date may technically have been sitting on the couch watching a movie with a bottle of wine, recapturing the beginning of your relationship can be a great way to rekindle that initial excitement and attraction that drew you together.
Consider visiting a memorable spot like the site of your first kiss, the beach where you took your first trip together or a favorite shared restaurant.
This blissful event happened to come in the midst of an international move and we were in a brand new place where we had to make our way. Although I don’t typically drink coffee, I still love this time with hubby and I enjoy decaf or tea instead.
So once again, it was time to put our ingenuity to the test to figure out a way to celebrate our anniversary at home. Send your spouse on a scavenger hunt with lots of fun clues. Go to a matinee movie or to a local dollar theater (if you have on in your town). And my husband is a fan of breakfast 100% of the time. Record a video using your webcam or cell phone telling your spouse what you appreciate about them. It is always fun to take the time to learn a bit about the pieces they are showcasing.
If you are anything like my husband and I, you like to celebrate your anniversary on a budget. These separations, have given us more insight as to why we should value every second we are able to spend with one another. It could be a gift, a photo, or even just a sweet note inside. Rent some movies at the Redbox and get some popcorn or other favorite snack to enjoy. Buy a bottle of wine and some inexpensive paints, and paint! While there are limitless ways to save big and still celebrate your anniversary, I hope that some of the ways listed above get your creative juices flowing.
