with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
One week from today, my husband and I will celebrate our eleventh (!) wedding anniversary. Last year was our tenth anniversary (obviously) and we spent four (gamble-free) nights in Las Vegas to celebrate. We walked along the strip (and walked)(and walked some more) and sat by the pool and saw our first Cirque du Soleil show (O) and shopped and went to Fremont Street and sat by the pool and went to the piano bar at Harrah’s and took a thousand photos and, oh. It really was lovely.
A trip away isn’t in the cards this year, for a myriad of reasons. The plan is to go out for dinner and a movie (Thor) but that just seems like our usual date night fare and we always buy flowers for the garden as our “present” to each other but I feel like I should do something more, you know? I’d surprise him with a night away but there are those three pesky (yet wonderful) kids and nobody to come to stay with them and so I want to do something special and creative.
I just don’t know what that special and creative thing is.
How about you? How do you celebrate your anniversary?
