Happy 6th Wedding Anniversary to Us!

This weekend (tomorrow, actually), my husband and I celebrate 6th years married...and 10 years total together. Kind of crazy that it's a third of our lives!


So very much has changed since then....

Loss
Birth
Loss
Another birth!
Weddings
Friends
Engagements
More babies!
Moving too many times to count
Vacations


And we did it, together.


Very, very...happily...together.

Happy anniversary!

Sixth Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Him #giftguide

Each year, I am tasked with finding something really cool to give my husband for our wedding anniversary. Last year it was a hand stamped wooden box (5th anniversary traditional: wood) with a silver mechanical watch (modern: silver).

This year for our sixth wedding anniversary the themes are iron and candy. Finally, an easy one!


When it comes to iron options for Him, I really love the titanium ring with ironwood inner band on the top right. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I'm definitely drawn to it much like the ebony wood with turquoise inlay.

Tiger iron cufflinks are another chic option for him, especially if he's a business man. I love giving him cufflinks so this is definitely a great option.

For something vintage, there are tonnes of iron bottle openers on Etsy. I remember my Dad had one of these in our basement, a Coca-Cola one actually, and I always thought it was a really charming fixture. It was never used, but it was just a neat piece of unique wall art.

And...if your husband is a golfer, a new iron might be in the books. This has definitely been a front runner in terms of ideas over the past few months, but really...what do I know about buying him a golf club!?

In terms of candy, clearly you've got to give him his favorites and for my husband that is hands down fuzzy peaches. I always put a bag of them in his Christmas stocking and last year, he made the mistake of sharing with Owen...who now loves "Daddy's special candy." Whoops!

Sixth Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas for Her #anniversay #giftforher

As we celebrate six years of wedded bliss {or chaos...your pick!} this month, it's time for another mini gift guide...this time gifts for her!

Sixth Anniversary gifts are traditionally iron or candy, and for this girl...that is a-ok! The modern gift for a sixth anniversary is wood, but we did that last year for our fifth so this year I will be focusing on traditional gifts.



I love being creative when it comes to traditional gifts. Our first year was paper, so I got my husband the sheet music from our first dance song. This year is iron...iron...rail way...spikes. Both the rose gold necklace and steel bracelets are a great iron option from Happy Laura Jewelry are not only beautiful, but are incredibly unique. I love the design, both industrial and feminine!

Another great iron option are these wrought iron bracelets from gurly girl. They remind me of an old wrought iron fence, and would look beautiful in a stack of glittery bangles!

As for candy...hello. Get her whatever her favorites are! For me, that's cherry blasters and Strawberry/Grape NERDS.

Happy anniversary, ladies!
