There are two things to celebrate for this month of October - our wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday. FYI, and as usual, we are going to celebrate them our own way (the frugal way, that is. LOL). You know, I'm always excited about the anniversary of important dates in our lives even though my excitement doesn't mean we are going to celebrate them in a major kind of way. Somehow, it just feels great to remember what it was like on our actual wedding day. When that day comes, we will have officially reached the three year milestone in marriage. Yes, up until now, we still smile when we look at our wedding photos. Ah, priceless! Three days after our wedding day, it's going to be hubby's birthday - truly an October to remember. If you want to know how we celebrated this month last year, check out this short video that hubby made for us.
Then comes November. Oh, let's not talk about my birthday. Okay, we can talk about it. It's funny because I would remember some of my office friends celebrate it in an unusual kind of way. Everytime my birthday comes nearer they would tell me that the November calendar doesn't have my birthday on it. Then I would be quick to tell them that it's good that the calendar doesn't have my birthday on it because I'm not planning on a birthday spree. Well, anyway, I don't usually let my wallet bleed when my birthday comes.
November, by the way, is a good time to shop for Christmas cards. In fact, as early as now, it's even a good time to buy them at a cheaper price. If you ask me, it feels different to receive a real Christmas card. No, not the electronic one. Somehow, you know you are special when the mailman arrives and he hands in your Christmas cards from significant people in your lives. This is why, if you're planning to send one for me and my family, you know you are going to make us smile. :-)
What about you, guys? Would you like to receive Christmas cards? Send me your thoughts.
