Anniversary Party: The Idea!

Eep! I'm so excited! I just came up with the idea to host a 5-year anniversary party and vow renewal (which will mainly be a family/friends reunion in 1.5 years after we've moved to Austin and built our new house). Matt is totally on board, and I am so eager to start planning. I've already got details swirling around in my head (like eating fondue at long tables under white lights!). But I have to stop myself.

First, Matt and I need to sit down and delineate our fundamental goals. Before I get carried away with the little details, we have to get down on paper what this event means to us, what our intentions are, what matters to us, what we value. That way, we can hold up every decision next to our goals and make sure they match up.

Easier said than done!

I love this idea, Sara! During our wedding weekend, we all talked about having a five year reunion and having everyone come back out to the ranch. Everyone got along so well and had so much fun at the ranch that it seems like a great plan. I'll let you know if we actually do it.

Congrats! I love your idea! A great way to unite your families and celebrate your marriage!

My fiance and I have decided that after were married and we have been married for a while that we would do something fun to celebrate our anniversary. We've decided to do a marriage encounter retreat. We want a good healthy marriage!

Well, congrats to you and your husband! Have fun renewing your vows! You both deserve the best!

Meghan! May I be rude and invite myself to your five-year reunion party? Your ranch wedding sounded like so much fun (and, hey, you can hand out all the leftover koozies and call them "commemorative"!). And thank you for the awesome holiday card. What a fantastic picture!

Jodi, what is a marriage encounter retreat?
