How did we Celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary

10th wedding anniversary is the first milestone of marriage so we wanted to have a special celebration. We’ve been thinking about it since last year, we already have plans but it did not materialize. 

Life has been so crazy and busy since June 2015 because of my psoriasis, my husband’s business trip every month and husband’s operation two weeks ago. In addition, our wedding anniversary fell on weekday so it is really hard to plan. 

But of course, we need to celebrate our 10 amazing years so I’ve been checking and inquiring in different hotels, some did not reply and others were fully booked. Maybe because February is love month so a lot of couples are celebrating too. 

February 14-15



Few days before Valentine’s Day, I checked Vivere Azure Resort and I told my husband about it. He called the resort and reserved a room for February 14 and 15, 2016. It was an overnight stay only but we had a great time. This deserves a separate post. 

February 14 is also our couple anniversary so my husband bought me Fujifilm X-A2 camera. I was really happy because DSLR has been in my blog’s wishlist for so long, hindi lang nabibili kasi nasisira laptop ko, of course laptop pinipili.



We’re supposed to buy this last Christmas but the color that I wanted was not available. Fast forward to February, it is still not available. I want mint green or pink but yellow is fine because I can’t wait anymore and pagod na rin kami, we’ve been to 3 different malls just to look for the camera.

And because I received my gift in advance, I was not expecting anything on our 10th wedding anniversary. I was really surprised when I woke up and I have 10 anniversary cards. It’s been a long time since I received a love note from my husband so this is really something special to me. He gave not just one but 10 cards so it took me a long time to finish it. 



Then I told him, mag-date naman kami. Seriously, I can’t even remember the last time we had a date since I gave birth. Every time we go out, my son is always in tow. We had a quick lunch at La Finca Tagaytay while my son was still in school. 



We went home and waited for our son. We finished his homework and off we went to Sip & Gogh. This has been in my bucket list for so long because I wanted to paint, frustrated artist lang. But the branches are too far so I was really glad when I learned that they have branch in Alabang na. 

We registered for Open Session, we really had fun because we are all first timers and we were able to create our own masterpiece even we don’t have the talent or skill. 




The family that paints together stays together. 

It was a simple celebration for our 10th year wedding anniversary but it was a memorable experience for all of us. 

How about you, how do you celebrate your wedding anniversary?

    1. By the way, I saw in your post that you have psoriasis. My skin has been sensitive since I was a kid and skin problems have been a family curse. Me naman, I have skin eczema and there are patches that won't really go no matter how I try. Ang hirap, ano? my consolation is that I dont get it on the face and I live in Baguio where it is okay to wear sleeves and long pants and boots :)

    2. The camera is easy to use. :) Yes, ang hirap lalo na pag flare up, hirap ihide. That's why I love cold season para may reason na mag longsleeves lagi.
