We’re Home For The 4th Of July

I hope y’all had a great American Independence Day celebration on the 4th of July. I know that most of us were traveling and on vacation.  And watching fireworks display in famous landmarks around the country was irresistible.  Some of you who stayed home to celebrate the special occasion with family and friends, I bet had a great time like me.

My family and I just came back from our mini-vacation on July 2nd.  We only had a day to buy food and prepare for the 4th of July party in our home.  But my husband and I were calm and got everything.  Even we were tired from all the traveling, we were able to accommodate our guests on the 4th of July.  🙂  We shot fireworks and everyone had a great time visiting and celebrating America’s Independence Day.

Tips To Celebrate Wedding Anniversary

What a lovely day to go on a road travel today. The weather is mostly cloudy and the temperature is in the 70s F. I thought it’s going to rain this morning but it didn’t. But there’s no plan to travel far away except this weekend because it’s my wedding anniversary. My dear husband and I are planning to go on a special trip just the two of us. Yes, it’s husband and wife’s getaway alright. We haven’t been together in a while. This time the little one will be with the aunt and uncle’s care over the weekend. My husband and I are going to spend a special time together.

Special occasions like wedding anniversaries are events that every couple should celebrate to keep the relationship fresh. It is also very important to keep the sweetness to each other. There are few things you can do to celebrate this special occasion.

Lunch Date or Dinner Date – Make an advance reservation for your date.  If you are scheduling it on a weekend, better reserve three days in advance because some nice restaurants are fully booked on weekends.

Gifts For Your Sweetheart – If you are giving a gift to your man, a few items can be considered:  watch, belt, polo shirt, wallet, travel planner, passport holder, under garments, hat, or a travel bag.

If you are giving a gift to your woman, here’s a few examples you can buy for her:  jewelry (necklace, earrings, ring, bracelet), handbag, shoes, clothes, perfume, customized travel planner, travel bag, kitchen electrics, home decor, or beauty products.  

Getaway – It is one great gift for both of you – a vacation to your dream place or a cruise that you have been looking forward to.  Plan ahead of time like six months ahead.  Travel planning can be stressful if you do it close to your agreed date.  Comparing hotel rates, ticket prices, and cruise packages can take time.  So book your trip soon.  

My husband and I are going to celebrate our wedding anniversary this weekend.  We are just gonna have a dinner date in town. Next year, hopefully, we can go on a vacation for our next wedding anniversary celebration.  

Planning A Trip To Charleston

In about a month or so, my husband’s nephew is graduating from The Citadel, The Military College Of South Carolina.  He’s taking a course in the navy.  And we are proud to say that he is in the Dean’s List.  He had successfully passed the job interview and he got an officer spot.

Almost all of the family wants to attend the graduation ceremony in Charleston, South Carolina.  Mom and Dad are going, too.  My husband is not 100% sure if he will be able to go because he said it’s hectic at work.  I would like to go.  But the problem is, the work schedule at my part time job doesn’t come until the 25th of this month.  My boss is a flight attendant and she travels most of the time.

Mom and Dad are currently planning their trip to Charleston.  They are also planning to rent a car because Mom and sister-in-law are going on a road trip since Dad is flying.  So Dad wants to know our response as soon as possible if we are going or not.  Because of my work schedule coming late, I want my husband to attend his nephew’s graduation ceremony.  He has to make his decision very soon.
