Four Year Anniversary

Russell and I celebrated our 4-year wedding anniversary yesterday! Every year we go to a body of water (ocean, lake, or bay), re-read our vows to each other and add something new. I completely forgot to do my amendment this year (doh!) but after thinking about it last night and today, I want to add that I want to be a better communicator. I tend to have K Rage (Korean rage, a real thing according to the internet) and get emotional in the heat of the moment. With my vow renewal, I’m going to try to be more thoughtful in the way that I communicate with Russell, even when I’m angry.

We try to stick with traditional anniversary gifts every year.

For this year’s fruit and flower tradition, we decided we’d gift ourselves with a budget to make an air plant wall on our patio. And Russell surprised me with some Korean pears last night as well.

It was fitting for our four-year anniversary dinner to be at Haven in Jack London Square, full of plant decor and a fruit-forward meal.
