TWO

Today marks the start of another year of marriage for K + M. We kicked the year off with FIREWORKS at Nathan Phillips and a 5km walk home after midnight. I have come to really dig this whole “world celebrates with you” element of our anniversary.

For our 2nd anniversary, we pledged to give gifts of cotton. I picked up this gorgeous new duvet set at West Elm. (I heart stripes.) As part of our travel games during our honeymoon in East Africa, we filled out our Sweetie Stats and came up with our own list of Wedding Gifts By Year.

Cotton anniversary

We kept some of the traditional gifts but ivory and coral had to go. Also, I just couldn’t imagine Mike wearing a ruby ring so we went with something more open-ended that could fuel a bit more creativity in our gift giving. Check it.

ONE Paper
TWO Cotton
THREE Leather Buttons
FOUR Fruit or Flowers
FIVE Wood
SIX Candy or Iron Technology
SEVEN Wool or Copper Light
EIGHT Bronze
NINE Pottery
TEN Tin Earth
ELEVEN  Steel Motion
TWELVE Silk or Linen Image
THIRTEEN Lace Water
FOURTEEN Ivory Music
FIFTEEN Crystal
TWENTY China Place
TWENTY-FIVE Silver
THIRTY Pearls White
THIRTY-FIVE Coral Space
FORTY Ruby Red
FORTY-FIVE Sapphire Blue
FIFTY Gold
FIFTY-FIVE Emerald Time

Although it isn’t our wedding song, I’m dedicating this to my husband today. (He knows why.) Happy Anniversary!
