I briefly mentioned it at the end of my last post, but my husband, Chris, and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary a couple weekends ago! It’s so crazy to think, including while we were dating and engaged, we’ve been together for almost 17 years 🤯🥰 and I still can’t seem to get enough of this man lol!
I really am so thankful to have this special, whirlwind, swept-me-off-my-feet kind of love, that has endured time. It hasn’t been without its challenges though, of course (especially this last year after spontaneous career shifts, and the unexpected loss of my father in-law, all while taking on a huge stressful remodeling project during the same time) but I’m so grateful we’ve had each other to go through it all with. 💖
When I looked up 12th wedding anniversaries, I learned that the traditional gifts are silk and linen! They symbolize strength, comfort, and luxury at this stage in marriage. How perfect is it that I wore this gorgeous silk dress before knowing that? The sheer velvet burnout floral fabric, and flowy silhouette, with ruffled sleeves made this dress so romantic, and perfect for an anniversary date night! I could also see myself wearing this dress as a wedding guest, or to a holiday party this season. Where would you wear it to?
