On the 27th we celebrated the anniversary of when we first met, our first date. We have always said this was the date we got together, although it wasn't until a month or so later that we became "official".
We have always celebrated this date, with a meal out or trip to the cinema.
There seemed to be an attitude of this date not really being significant, or important enough to warrant a celebration. I guess due to the fact that we are married and therefore have our set anniversary every year.
We don t go overboard and exchange cards and gifts. Its simply about recognising the date and acknowledging it, and it's a great excuse for a date night.
This year we got my mum to babysit and booked a table at Prezzo in Aldeburgh. We've been there twice before and loved it.
We had a really delicious meal. I went for a £19.95 deal choosing Calamari to start, the Zilli Meat pizza for main and bread and butter pudding for dessert.
Every part of the meal was amazing. I think it was the best pizza I have ever eaten in fact!
All washed down with 2 glasses of Rose wine and a glass of beautifully chilled Limoncello.
To us it's still a date to celebrate, it's still an anniversary, us being married doesn't make the date we first met any less special.
