  1. These are good reminders for old married folk like me. :-)

  2. I love the checklist. There are some great ideas. I do not want to admit both hubby and I forgot our anniversary last year.

    One thing we do to 'celebrate' each other everyday is with 'minute birthdays'. His birthday is January 31, so at 1:31 I tell him Happy Birthday and he gets one minute of celebration. He does the same with me. Of course, we often miss the time, but when we do catch the time, it gives us both a feeling we are appreciated.
