Today is our fifth wedding anniversary. I am wearing the perfume I reserved for our wedding, Chanel Gardénia, and I love that I can return to this scent and instantly be flooded with memories from that day. It is also fitting that the traditional gift material for celebrating five years of marriage is wood because we are “gifting” each other a fence for our backyard (which is in progress as I type!). These past five years have seen a lot of traveling, new experiences together and a puppy, to name a few. But mostly, it has been savoring the everyday moments, laughing a lot and taking the time each day to appreciate one another which have brought the most joy. We will mark this occasion with a special bottle of Champagne, Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Vintage 2008, the same bottle that we toasted with the night of our wedding, and enjoy being together!
