Steve and I have 2 Anniversaries. The First, when we were legally married and the other, when we were sealed as a family in the Salt Lake Temple. Our church allows us to have a special ceremony in the temple where we are sealed to our families and no matter what happens to any of us, as long as we are good people, we get to spend eternity together... sounds pretty amazing to me.
We got sealed 4 years ago, when Alfie was only 8 months old, and any children we have had or will have thereafter are born into the covenant and are already sealed to us.
Members of our faith usually get married in the temple and are sealed on that day, but Steve and I did things a little backwards. Sometimes, the plans we make for ourselves don't match the plans God has for us, but then we wouldn't be who we are today if it weren't for our trials and experiences.
I love that the occasion falls near Valentine's day, a day to celebrate love. There is nothing in this wide world I adore more than these people.
Our wedding Anniversary is always celebrated with a trip for Steve and I and our sealing Anniversary is generally celebrated as a family. This year is was a nice (I won't say quiet) dinner out with the kids.
