Leather, Crystal/Glass, and Sunflowers

Today marks our third anniversary of the day that we said “I do” [or should that be “we did”?]

Leather is the traditional gift for the third anniversary as it symbolizes reaching a stage of flexible durability. The modern gift is crystal or glass which is meant to symbolize the marriage’s special beauty while highlighting it’s fragileness. The sunflower? The sturdy stalk is supposed to signify the strong foundation of the marriage. The yellow petals symbolize the love that radiates outward. Stong, colourful, and passionate — they are said to capture all the characteristics of the first three years of marriage.

What does our third-anniversary celebration have in store?
A much-needed kid-free night, probably some pizza and sleep.
Lots of sleep.
We are amazingly exciting in that way.
