Pens and Pennies

It is our anniversary tomorrow, 7 years.  We celebrated a week early with an overnight in Boston (complete with lavish dinner that S forgot to use the $100 giftcard we had) and so tomorrow there will be no gifts.  We love to refer to the Wedding Anniversary Chart when picking gifts and when we looked this year, this is what we found:

7th Anniversary

Traditional US:  Wool, Copper    

Modern US:  Desk Sets/pen and pencil Sets

I love giving gifts according to these themes (or at least a small something).  The first year anniversary gift is paper and we gave each other airline tickets to Mexico to go with the free trip they gave us when they bumped us from our honeymoon :)  On our fourth anniversary, "the Linen Anniversary", I gave S kitchen towels and ironically my mom gave us some too. 

Because we said no gifts this year, I had to get creative and I only spent 41cents!  I wish I had real pictures for you to witness these amazing gifts, but my back is still in rough shape and that would just take too much effort.  Instead, please enjoy these internet photos :)

For 39cents I scored two beautiful blue papermate pens  I had a coupon for Target and so I saved a dollar on these pretty things.
S actually will receive two blue pens, sorry for any confusion
In the spirit of copper, I give my sweetie my two cents ;)  Not sure that he wants it or that they still make penny's out of copper but it is the thought that counts.

Happy 7th Anniversary S :)  Thanks for being my best friend and for loving me for who I am.  I am so happy that after 7 years (13 together) that you still give me butterflies!  Thanks for making me the luckiest girl in the world.  Enjoy your pens and pennies :)

I love the picture! And your gifts!

We didn't do gifts or cards this year. Just spending 3 hours together was all I wanted.
