An Anniversary She will Remember!
Think ahead, what it is you want to do on your Anniversary?
Remember when we first met?
- when our eyes met!
- our first date!
- when we first touched!
- our first walk!
- when we first kissed!
- our time together!
- when I'd pick you up!
- how we talked!
- when time, had no end!
- just you and me!
- in love...till sunset!
- how beautiful you were!
- and still are!
- I love you!
- You are the Love of My Life!
Men, are you unsure what to do?
Do you have an anniversary coming up? The first thing is to remember...is the correct date, then plan ahead! I know some men are really awesome at this, have to admit my spouse has to rely on our daughter to make sure he gets it right:)
The love of your life, wants to feel and look like the love of your life. Of course she wants something special, and if it is a year that is monumental, she really is hoping for something different than you have done before!
I have actually been thinking about this for a week or so before the hubmob mentioned writing about anniversary's...a man mentioned in passing, "wonder what I should do for our anniversary?" He is on track, he is thinking ahead, and it is a monumental year for them. I could tell he does want to do something different, a special time she will not forget!
The question is what? Here are some ideas to think about, maybe it will stimulate your thoughts into a whole different direction than anything ever mentioned:)
Photo Shoot: Of course you will plan a special dinner, or night out for a romantic evening! What about adding to your agenda, a scheduled photo shoot for the two of you? I'm not talking about a photo where you both look into the camera. This would be a photo to cherish, on your bedroom wall. You maybe would need to find a photographer, (possibly a wedding photographer), you feel comfortable with, so that he/she can capture the love you have for each other! Gazing into each others eyes, or kissing her. If any of you do like this idea, I recommend when it is time to take your picture that to focus on her! She is the beauty, and it is your eyes that behold her:) Think about how much you love her, how beautiful she is, tell her as you gazed into her eyes...Let those eyes reflect her beauty:) I don't know a woman who wouldn't love to have a picture like this of her and her love! That is if she is still in love with her husband:)
Dinner Cruise: Do you have a river near you? How about scheduling a Dinner Cruise:)
Name a Star: A friend of mine recently told how he named a star after his wife:) At that time it cost him $85 and that star is still named to this day. They record the name you want to name the star, and send you a picture of where the star is in the sky:)
Gift Basket: Allot of woman love gift baskets:) What they like is a gift basket, that is filled with things they love. A well done gift basket, is warming to the heart. If careful thought and love was put into a gift basket, it makes all the difference in the world. What is nice if you decide to have a gift basket done, I'd suggest, that you pick a few signature pieces that you have picked out for your spouse. Then find someone who does well at preparing gift baskets, let them know what style and colors your wife loves. If possible have the basket preparer, do the wrap of the basket with a nice colored or dyed netting, and add a beautiful well made bow. The wrap makes all the difference.
Glamour Shots: Have you seen the amazing pictures that Glamour Shots does? I've known many women and girls, who have had these done. They seem to have a knack for picking out the Ladies best features and expressing on them. The pictures do look glamorous with a softness to them. Some women have had them done, to give to their husbands. You may request that she have some done and pay the price, so that you can have some beautiful pictures of her to admire from day to day:) This would mean allot to most woman...that her husband wants a really good picture of her, and for her to be made over for a moment in time. Schedule dinner and a special place to go for this memorable evening of love and romance!
Just a Night at Home:For those who still have kids at home, how long has it been since you've had the house to just yourselves. Maybe you can get some help with the kids, let everyone know you are not going to be available. Surprise your wife, get a person so clean the house for her. Try to set the mood in the house, so that when you walk in the door after taking her out, she is like wow, this is so nice to be able to enjoy time with you in our own home:) Buy some chocolates or bon bons, to munch on with her for a midnight snack. Maybe a glass of sparkling cider or wine for those who drink wine. Block out this time with her, no phones, no TV, have some nice music:) She would love a dance from you, a special song would make it so much more!
Song Dedication: You've heard many people do this. If you do not have a special song already picked out for the two of you. Plan ahead, start listening to the words of some songs, go to the store and listen to some Cd's...see if you can find some songs, that speak the words you would like to speak or sing to her heart. Either way, sometime in your evening play this song for her:) Hold her, dance with her, lip sink the song to her. This is your time!
Star Gazing: In the evening when the stars are clear! Grab up some blankets and some pillows, grab her hand and say...let's go! Go outside lay the blankets on the ground, or open up the bed of your pick-up? Throw down the pillows! Lay down and look up to the stars:) Now gaze into her eyes, and hold her under the blankets:) Warm her heart and her soul with the love you have for her!
Write her a note: Whether you buy a card or make one, make sure you write her a note! Not just sign it and say I love you. Take the time to think of what comes to heart, when you think about her:) Some people like...to not just hear it in words, they want proof of your love! Anything that took pre-planned effort scores you some points. Actions speak louder than words, and if you are not a card or letter writer...take the time to write her a love letter, or a poem if you are gifted:)
There are so many things you could do, just take the time to plan something special for the one who holds you up, in taken care of your needs. We are in such a busy world, we have to make time for those we love, especially our spouse! If we don't try to nurture or re-kindle that love, it can get lost in the mundane things of everyday life! As a couple you have a special bond:) You have been given a special partner, help mate, best friend, lover, mother, business partner, baker...whatever she is to you, remember she is not your enemy. Try to find a way, if things have gone astray, to bring back some of the things you did for her when you were first dating, and married:) I hope and pray you have an extra special Anniversary this year, in whatever you decide to do! God Bless You Both:)
