  1. I’ve loved every anniversary but favorite was our 6th:) we were living in South Dakota at the time an decided we would go in the Black Hills and spend the weekend. Everything was so expensive we backtracked to a small town, bought two sleeping bags and a kids tent and went and found a camp site. It was the most relaxing, enjoyable time. And our kids reap the benefits of that tent we bought!!

  2. My favorite anniversary memory is my first anniversary when my husband and I rented a b&b in a vineyard! It was so romantic and I loved waking up with a view of the sun coming over the vines… maybe we can do it again sometime!

  3. I have enjoyed all 15 but I think year 5 when we celebrated with a new baby girl was the best one yet 🙂

  4. My favorite so far has been the night of our 4th anniversary when we sat down to have a sweet home cooked lobster dinner (courtesy of my husband the chef) with our 1 week old daughter asleep in her Moses basket next us.

  5. I think my favorite anniversary so far was my second wedding anniversary. My husband surprised me with a trip to Orlando to go see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. He knows me well 🙂

  6. We’ve only had one anniversary. Our two year anniversary is next month but last year, we went to the beach we got married on and spent the day at the beach, and plan on doing it again this year

  7. Our anniversaries are always fun, but are usually low-key. For our first anniversary, we went to The Melting Pot, a very intimate fondue place. We spent at least two hours just being together over candlelight and acting like goofballs.

  8. Our favorite anniversary was when we made pin-hole cameras and took black and white outdoor pictures and developed them in our bathroom.

  9. I am not yet married, however my parents just celebrated their 22 anniversary! My favorite memory of celebrating as a family would have to be when they and my aunt and uncle jointly celebrated their 20th and 10th anniversaries! It was a fun family party!

  10. For our very first anniversary we stayed at a beautiful hotel in San Diego and we were upgraded to a Suite. Since we were young and poor it was quite the treat! Now 22 years later, we still have a wonderful time celebrating a happy marriage. Thank you for the great giveaway!

  11. Looking back at our very first wedding anniversary I now think of how sweet it all was. We had just bought our home, a fixer-upper that left things very tight. Our only car had just started failing us and needed some work, and we had no gifts. But we ordered pizza from our favorite place and had an intimate dinner in our in progress renovations and my husband surprised me with flowers he brought home on his bike. hahaha… so sweet!

  12. Our 5th anniversary was our first overnight away from kids! We went wine tasting then to a concert. It was amazing!

  13. The birch tree one is my fav! I got my husband a birch tree and planted it at our new house for our 6th anniversary. He’s always wanted one!

  14. Birch please!! Any anniversary before kids because since they’ve arrived we seem to always forget! LOL

  15. We’ve only had one, but my husband planned the whole day which was so awesome because I’m usually the one making all the plans/reservations/etc. I loved that he took care of every last detail!

  16. I have only had one anniversary so far, but it was amazing. It was a simple date night doing fun things- nothing fancy, but perfect for us! I love these cutouts so much! Your creativity is inspiring =)

  17. Love this idea. Even if I don’t win, I might have to snag myself one of these! Favorite Anniversary memory would be how quickly six years has flown by.

  18. We have a anniversary tradition of taking a photo of ourselves holding up a numbered paper. Next week, we will take our ninth installment photo of this anniversary tradition. Check out the whole collection on the “about” page in our family blog. PS- pick me! I’ve adored this tree carving art ever since I happened upon your blog! Erin
