I can hardly believe that in a few weeks, Dan and I will be celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary. I was feeling a bit nostalgic earlier and read through some really old email letters between us (we've known each other since we were 19!). It's amazing to be with him on this journey of raising Juniper together as parents, but sometimes my heart aches a little for those early days when we were just falling in love and you thought you would burst from being apart for even a short while. I'm pretty sure our anniversary night is going to simply involve a quick dinner at a local restaurant, praying that Juniper stays asleep or entertained until we get the check. Romantic nights are tricky with a two month old!
I always like to give Dan something special and sentimental for our anniversary. I checked out Jenny Vorwaller's shop and love this idea — a custom watercolor portrait you can commission her to make from a photo of your wedding day, your kiddos, or any loved ones. If I had the funds, I'd also love to have one of our wedding photos turned into a custom oil painting as part of the Commission Project. That could be a cool tradition to start. For each anniversary, we adopt one piece of art that means something to us.
