The Big 0-4!
Fruit and flowers. We Google "wedding anniversary gifts" around this time each year, and on the fourth wedding anniversary, a couple "should" exchange fruit and flowers. Which is good news. Fruit and flowers are cheap. I'm thinking $30 at the farmer's market this weekend, and we're solid. This budget-friendly milestone is good news, because next year, the wedding anniversary gift should be made of wood. Like furniture. Like expensive.
So you've probably guessed this is not a photo shot by me or Joe at a recent wedding. This is us, on our wedding day, June 21, 2008. It was hot. Uncomfortably so, just like today. Thanks to my former USA TODAY colleague, Sean Dougherty, for flying to California to capture the day for us. Thanks to Klaus, our baker. Our cake was amazing, and if we have any advice for brides and grooms-to-be? Cake taste. Demand excellence. If quality photos are priority one, dessert should be priority two.
Happy Anniversary to us.
