Wedding Anniversary Traditions

Matt and I decided on our anniversary traditions: one of us writes a letter (with pictures) to encapsulate our year together, while the other person plans some sort of excursion. We alternate who does what each year.

This year, Matt was in charge of the letter, and I was in charge of the excursion. Because we spent a lot on our annual adventure (to Paris and Greece), we opted for a cheaper anniversary celebration. I decided on a bayou boat ride ($7 per person!) and a fancy picnic featuring the following:
  1. Couscous salad in red bell peppers
  2. Homemade pita crisps with hummus
  3. Lemon-thyme dip with vegetables
  4. Fresh summer fruit
  5. Lemon lime bars
  6. Hibiscus Mint Iced Tea
I made Matt a fancy agenda (which really wasn't all that fancy). I took white poster board and spray painted it with gold paint (leftover from my last superhero costume). I used a piece of paper from our extra atlas (sorry, South Carolina!) for the background and a piece of white card stock to print the details (using the Scriptina font). I attached everything with a layer of rubber cement. Voila!

You must come to Charleston, SC so you have to replace your atlas page :)

Love the agenda, and love the idea of alternating who decides how to celebrate your anniversary! Really creative!
