First Anniversary Q&A

We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary this past weekend and had so much fun! We toasted to our first year (and many more) with our monogrammed champagne glasses (affiliate link) and ate year old cake–which is surprisingly very tasty!

Pro Tip: Do yourselves a favor and get monogrammed champagne glasses, you won’t regret it!

Included in my Savor boxes were 1st anniversary surveys to be filled out and then sealed until a later date. We’re saving them for our five year anniversary, but I thought I’d give y’all a little sneak peek! (Also, yes this picture again because it’s actually our favorite!)

Question 1: You make me smile when________.

J: You talk my head off.

Apparently he loves when I never shut up! Duly noted sir.

A: You help me around the house.

Did anyone not see this one coming? Men doing the laundry, dishes, etc. is literally the best thing ever!

Can we all agree that men helping around the house is seriously the best thing ever? Click To Tweet

Question 2: Even when we are 100, we’ll still be arguing over ________.

J: Whose turn it is to bathe the dog.

I mean the dog is going to be seven in January; can’t she bathe herself at this age? Real talk though: I hate giving Laney a bath because she just looks so pitiful!

A: Which side of the sink the dishes go on.

Before I married Josh, I never knew there was a “correct” side of the sink for the dishes. Hint: it’s the right side. The left side is to remain clear in the Ryan household.

Question 3: My favorite thing about you is__________.

J: The way you support me in everything you do.

I come from an overly supportive family (hey fam) so it’s good to know he actually likes this!

A: The way you love me.

But really. For nine years, he’s learned my quirks and weaknesses and loved me because of them. He’s the perfect husband to me!



Here’s to the next year and many, many more together. I can’t wait to see how we grow together!

    Aw, this is so cute! I love that you’re going to open up the surveys again on your fifth anniversary, but the sneak peek was fun to see! Nice way to see what you appreciate about the other one, since we don’t always tell people these things.

    Awe this is such a sweet idea! Happy anniversary! I just got married in June, so I definitely may have to do this with my husband. It’s funny because we argue about little things when it comes to our dogs too. Lol.
