Thankful for Hubba-Luv

Meda White

We celebrated thirteen years of marriage last Sunday. Actually, we went to dinner after I spent two solid days in something like yoga bootcamp. I was too tired for anything exciting.
We don’t tend to celebrate big, except for every five years. We kicked our marriage off with a honeymoon to the Netherlands. Five years was a trip to Hawaii, ten was Germany & Italy, fifteen will be the United Kingdom (if I get my way). I’ve got twenty and twenty-five planned out too, but if you ask Hubba-luv, he’ll tell you we’re going to Panama City Beach, Florida for all of them.
I was about to crop this when I realized our wedding photo is in the background. Cool, huh?
For a small gift this year, I got him his favorite cereal. (He doesn’t get it very often because I am the food nazi in our house. He retired from that role when he started his MBA program.) It was on sale, so I also saved us some money. Plus, there was a bonus: a Star Wars pen inside. Now, I have to buy this for him every week until we have all eight pens. In this box, we got the Storm Trooper. “Best anniversary gift ever,” he says. I agree it’s pretty cool.

I’m thankful for the opportunity to share my life with my partner and best friend. He gets my humor, he makes me laugh, and generally speaking, he makes life brighter.

What’s the best (or most unusual) gift you ever received for an anniversary?


  1. Bwahahahaha!
    Awesome wife. ^_^ So sweet of you to let him “cheat” on your anniversary. 😉 I also love that Star Wars was somehow involved.

    I don’t think our anniversary gifts are too unusual…and so far, really not that big. My husband did decide from our first anniversary on that he was going to follow the Modern/Traditional anniversary gift theme: http://www.hallmark.com/anniversary/ideas/anniversary-gift-ideas/

    This year for #10 he broke with his self-imposed tradition for the first time (no, I don’t think he was intentionally dodging the Diamond jewelry) and gave me something that represents a great deal of time, thought, tradition, and understanding of me. He took his family 60-year-old heirloom Scrabble board (with the wooden tiles and rotating base) and pulled out just enough letters to spell ‘Ten Years In Love”… He then arranged them in typical scrabble fashion inside of a glass display frame and left it sitting on top of the board when I got home from the lengthy, expensive writing conference I THOUGHT was my actual present for the year. I still want to cry every time I walk past it. ^__^

  2. For my third anniversary I was given a trip to Atlanta to see Rod McKuen in concert. He signed a copy of his book Listen to the Warm. It was a memorable and beautiful gift.
