Chris and I met in May of 2006, and made it official as boyfriend & girlfriend this month, 9 years ago! Even though we’re married now, we still always celebrate our dating anniversary too so I wanted to find an extra special card. I made a beeline for the Hallmark Signature card aisle and believe it or not, this was the very first card I picked up! Of course, I still read all of the other anniversary cards in the section just in case because I absolutely adored all the fun embellishments Hallmark Signature used and sweet messages the cards read, but I never put this one down and still ended up coming back to it. Reading it made my heart skip a beat – this one was just absolutely perfect! The outside says, “The thing I love most about my life is who I share it with” on a gorgeous piece of wood that can (and definitely will) be used as decor and the inside reads, “I knew I’d love you forever… I just didn’t know it would be quite this much fun.” It describes our relationship to a T!! The adorable wood design was so whimsical to me and reminded me of one of our first dates at Balboa Park in San Diego or my favorite celebration destination, Disneyland. It made me think of carving our initials into a tree (something we’ve never done, but I always thought was so cute!) and the wood just really feels warm and welcoming – how love should be! I styled this outfit with both of these in mind for a romantic picnic or fun day at an amusement park! My woven hat plays off of the wood texture theme and my outfit silhouette is fun, flirty and romantic – perfect for a fun outdoor date! I leaned more towards the primary colors for my outfit because there’s just something so sweet and lovey-dovey about a true bold red, golden yellows and handsome blues.
What’s your favorite anniversary celebration outfit or destination?
