Happy Friday friends! Today I’m actually in the car on the way to Iowa with my little family to celebrate a belated 4th of July with our family members. I’m super excited to have the time to be with my in-laws and nieces/nephews for a few days.
We actually are able to celebrate a little bit this morning as well because it’s Zach and my 6 year wedding anniversary. Over the years we actually stopped giving gifts because we’ve been saving for our home, saving for our kids camps or rather..this year saving for our trip to the Almafi Coast in about three weeks! ( See our FOUR YEAR Anniversary )
Over the last 6 years our family has done gone through many changes. Moving to our first home, than finding out a few months later getting transferred to Atlanta, had our sweet Landon, moved back to Chicago area and now building our third home. Goodness! It’s been such a fun little roller coaster with the occasional downs but many ups. ( See our 10 year dating anniversary )
Of course with any marriage there are a few things I’ve wanted to share some cute gift ideas + our FIVE YEAR Advice ) )
1. Amazon Echo – We seriously are obsessed with our Amazon Echo. We actually received it for Christmas a few years ago and it’s our little personal assistant. It reminds us upcoming meetings, reminders for things I need to get at the store and plays some great hits.
3. Jenga – We love playing games, especially fun games in the summer involving all our friends! Jenga is such a popular one ( even with a few adult beverages ha ) and I found this one for under $12! It’s such a great idea!
4. Express Maker – For the coffee lover in your life ( or maybe just yourself ) we adore having a big old cup of joe in the morning. It’s the best and THIS ONE has been on our list for a few years! It’s a bit pricey but you have so many options to make so many different varieties of coffee!
