And, they say it's the men who forget...

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."
-Marcel Proust

So Rob reminded me this afternoon that our wedding anniversary is quickly approaching. In fact, the conversation went like this:

R: So, did we set a price limit on our anniversary gifts for each other yet?
J: What?!?!? Anniversary... crap! I haven't even thought about that.
R: Really? I've been thinking about it for awhile and have lots of ideas!
J: Well, then you set a budget, and I'll come up with something in that range.
R: Ok, how about 1290 dollars?
J: Sure, I think I can fall below that.

And, then my preoccupation with lesson plans quickly transformed into a preoccupation with clever, sweet, romantic, useful gifts for my main man.

The second anniversary tradition is cotton, and considering the fact that my husband works at a cotton mill, it seems like I should be able to come up with something decent. But, darn, if it isn't a challenge to think up a clever gift for a man.

Any ideas? I've got two weeks!


  1. Hmmmmm, that's a tough one!!!
    Cotton hammock,

    This briefcase

    Good luck!!

  2. Jordan's suggestion: cotton balls (oh boy, that certainly makes me look forward to our two-year :)

    Are you trying to make something for him? Anything for your house that he could get excited about (linens, towels)?

    Messenger bag? Jordan was really excited about his, although I don't know what it's made of.

    Can you plan some sort of experience at his workplace, or would that embarrass him?
