A Celebration

2014 July 29


Our ten year wedding anniversary is coming up in a few weeks and while it feels somewhat indulgent, we’ve decided to celebrate.

It’s going to be a small, private vow renewal on a Hawaiian beach.

Just us and our kids.

It felt silly at first to do anything of the sort because to us, ten years has been easy.

Ten years has been effortless. Ten years has been filled with luck and love and good health and happiness. Ten years has been fun.

And that’s when I realized that that is exactly why we need to celebrate it.

So it will be a simple little ceremony on a Hawaiian beach. Bare feet in the sand. The sun setting over the ocean. Some flowers, some lace. An off-white dress and a photo or two.

Two little witnesses.

And a lifetime of memories.

    It sounds simple and great. I don’t think it’s easy to make it fun and easy for 10 years, so I agree with you, now is the time to celebrate your lives together thus far and what you’ve accomplished. Hope it’s a blast!

    So excited for you. My husband and I got married 4 years ago in Hawaii and I can’t wait to renew our vows in 6 years. Amazing that your kids get to witness the love. Congratulations to you both.

    My cousin and his wife (SF Bay residents married in Hawaii) did this on their 10th anniversary at the Fairmont on Maui. My cousin’s wife had her wedding dress altered and then she and her boys, who wore white too, had sunset pictures on the beach taken beforehand. They were gorgeous and such a nice way to commemorate the occasion.

    Congratulations on your anniversary and have a great time in Hawaii!
