5 Ways to Spend an Anniversary

This coming weekend, Dai and I are celebrating our 4-year anniversary! We are going to be spending the weekend away together in Southern California to celebrate and I am really excited! It isn't always easy to decide what to do with your loved one to acknowledge a special milestone, though, so I came up with some ideas that you can use for your next anniversary (or even a wonderful date)!

+ Spa day
This might not sound so fun to your guy, but I am sure he will quickly change his mind once you two begin your day of pampering! Get a massage or facial together, and maybe even a pedicure :) Who doesn't love a day of relaxing?!

+ Day at an amusement park
Bring our your inner child or daredevil by spending a day at an amusement park! It is always fun to do something that you don't get to do on a regular basis, and an amusement park is a great way to let loose and have fun!

+ Day trip
Leave early in the morning and make the most out of your day by taking a drive a few hours away to explore a new town! Or spend the day in your nearest big city doing and seeing new things and/or your favorite familiar things. End the day with dinner at a cool spot and you've just had a great anniversary!

+ Make a special dinner at home
Making a special dinner at home is a great low-key option! You two could even go shopping together for the things to create your dinner and then when you get home, pour a glass of wine, put some music on, and make the meal together! End the evening with a yummy dessert and maybe even a movie on the couch. You can make this celebration as fancy or easy going as you'd like!

+ Spend a weekend away!
If you have the time and budget, this is definitely a wonderful way to celebrate your love! With the busyness of the work week, it can be difficult to spend quality one-on-one time with your loved one. It is always nice to take a weekend trip together to recharge and focus on one another! Weekend trips are great for places that you can easily drive to :)

I hope that this list was helpful to you in some way! This year, we are opting for the last idea on that list, which also happens to include the second item! It will be so very nice to spend a weekend away and have a much needed adventure with my guy! You can keep up with our travels on Instagram while we are away if you'd like :)
