Love this! DH and I decided we would try to stick to tradition, so we did paper gifts this year. We actually just exchanged them yesterday. I will update with photos later this weekend if I can remember.

Awesome Deb - I'm starting on our 2nd gift and we are trying to stick to tradition too.  I decided last night that even though finances are a little tight, I'm going to try and put a little bit away so we can do a weekend HM trip for our second anniversary in the Poconos, close to home and should be reasonable since it is in October. 


Can't wait to see the pics!

For our first anniversary last year we went out for dinner. We were acutally on a holiday, so it was special anyway. For this year, I don't know yet what we will do. I was thinking about doing a photobook with pics of the last 2 years, including the best wedding pics aswell my pregnancy, holidays and pics of our LO.


@Becca: I hope you can do the weekend trip for your 2nd anni, it would be awesome!


@msdl: can't wait to see pics of your gift!

I tried to stick with the themes so I got my DH a gift certificate to go skydiving, as well as three of the Walking Dead comic books. He got me an anniversary band so he didn't really stick with it, but I'm not complaining one bit!
