I'm sure we could all supply an endless list of things that separate men and women, make them so unique in their thinking and approaches to the world. In that case, I won't tell you what you could tell me yourself. Instead, I will maybe entertain you with the following list of dissimilarities that have emerged as my husband I approach our five year wedding anniversary and plan to celebrate it in the Mayan Riveria of Mexico!
-I call this vacation a vow renewal.
-He has a very different name for it. He calls it a vacation.
-I printed the vows we spoke on our wedding day five years ago and I have a pretty book I plan to put them in so we can read them to eachother on the beach in Mexico. I have also written something new that I will read to him that day and I am going to ask him to do the same.
-He doesn't yet know anything about the above two sentences.
-I bought a dress especially to wear on the day we renew our vows.
-He thinks we can share a suitcase and also make it small enough to carry on the plane.
-Two months ago, I hired a Mexican photographer to take photos of us renewing our vows on the beach.
-He asked why a member of the hotel staff couldn't just take pictures with one of our phones.
-We were married on February 13, 2009. I started planning this vow renewal on February 14, 2009.
-He said something insensitive about it being ridiculous to plan a five year anniversary when we had only been married for 18 hours.
-I have our wedding song downloaded so that we can dance to it on the beach.
-He is probably not going to like that.
-I started packing last week.
-He will pack an hour before we leave.
-I'm already planning something for our ten year anniversary.
-He is probably not going to show up.
-I have a Plan B.
