Of anniversaries..

I am still around in case you were wondering about my whereabouts.

So we celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary last week.Considering how everyone has been gushing about it,I am safely assuming that it is an achievement of some sort.And I, of course, take full credit.We went out to dinner to this restaurant atop a revolving tower located in Dallas downtown.The view was spectacular for one got to see the whole of Dallas in about an hour as thats how long one entire revolution took.The food of course sucked and the service was ok.Apart from enjoying the view and each other's company, M and I spent considerable amount of time trying to figure out how the waiters managed to remember who sat where and when.It can get very confusing thanks to the constant motion and the dim lighting does not help much either.Fun it was!

For our first wedding anniversary we went on this really fun hiking trip.We got lot of phone calls from lot of people,wishing us on the occasion.And invariably everyone wanted to know what we were doing.(Not who silly,what.....what).And the moment we told them about our plans,they gasped in horror.Holy cow, a hiking trip?!What the hell is that?Since when did that qualify as romantic?Or a celebration? Who does that for a first anniversary?Who does that for any anniversary?How lame can one be?
So this year when we revealed our grand plans,everyone was very satisfied that we finally had become normal people.A candle light dinner in a fancy restaurant!Oh yes,that is how it is done.Look up any website and they will endorse it. Convention does count for something,no.

Talking about conventional celebrations, I still have a couple of friends who cannot get over the fact that we went to Egypt of all places for our honeymoon. Mummies? So not romantic!

You went hiking? What a good idea. My one year anniversary is coming up and I have no clue what to do! I'd better start thinking...

I love Lucy said...

@Planethalder : Yup,the hiking trip was a lot of fun! And wasn't all that expensive either as we were in no position to indulge back then :-)
So have you considered Egypt?!!

congratulations! as for candle-lit dinners, it IS very romantic but:)

I love Lucy said...

@just passing by : Thanks!I agree,it is quite romantic and I enjoyed the evening.Just that it has become more of a convention rather than an option which is what I don't quite like.
