Happy Anniversary to all April 29ers!

April 29, 2011

Not only did the new royal couple pick the very best day of the year to get married, we share this sweet 16th anniversary of ours with such amazing couples as (my  personal heroes) President Gordon & Marjorie Hinckley, (my uncle and aunt) Joe & Janet Cramer, and (my brother and sister-in-law) Joe & Brittney Cramer.

honorary mention to my Cramer grandparents, 4 days earlier on April 25, 1947

I love how my Cramer grandparents celebrated their "monthliversary" where he would give her a treat and a note on the 25th of every month.  Today we will be carrying on our tradition of watching our wedding video and reminiscing about our years together.  Happy anniversary to us all, and a cheer for happy marriages everywhere! 
(Others are free to send gifts as well as gift ideas :-)--what special traditions do you have for anniversaries?
