Now you all know that I'm a sucker for "traditional" anniversary gifts, and this year was no exception. The traditional gift for the five year anniversary is silverware, and with the wedding seven months away, I found my beautiful girl an extra special silverware set from New York to use during our celebrations. But of course, these gift categories are open to interpretation, so I also figured that along with her silverware, she needed some silver wear; and thus some silver jewelry from London and from Paris was necessary. Something practical, something sentimental, and something just for fun; that's my philosophy and I haven't been disappointed yet!

Today is the day! It's the 5th day of my birthday month, and I am celebrating my 5 year anniversary with my ever-after; I think if anything constituted a 'champagne' celebration it would be today; 5 years on the 5th! And what better way to start our morning then with a few small surprises of classic No. 5 pieces from Mademoiselle Coco Chanel? My fiancée reminds me all the time; a girl can never have too much Chanel. It’s the Year of Five and I couldn’t be happier.

2010 / 2011 / 2012 / 2013 / 2014
One of our first photos taken in 2010 is seen above; before we had officially placed a title on the whirlwind romance we found ourselves in, we found ourselves at a Christmas function surrounded by people who knew both of us so well, but did not know our intentions. I'm not sure how much you can tell from the photo or expressions, but boy things have changed much since then. Fast forward to 2014, where the photo is from our friend's wedding last summer, where we are happily engaged, living in our beautiful home, and basking in each other as if Valentines Day 2010 was days ago. It's okay if none of that made sense - its our unique love story and I am usually pretty hoarder-ish about putting it on the internet. But today, on the eve of our FIFTH ANNIVERSARY, I can't help but look back at the last 260 weeks with this gorgeous creature, and ask myself how I got so damn lucky.

Love him or hate him, we will continue talking about him. Watch this impactful interview, where Kanye West shades Amber Rose, praises the Kardashian clan, and talks about his personal journey to becoming a better, more humble person. Also, tons of fashion; what's not to love?!

Every year at the onset of March, I have a type of re-awakening. Its almost as if I wake up from a deep winter slumber. Because both my anniversary and my birthday is in March, for me, March signifies the new / next year. January and February are kind of like my bonus months of the year before, where I still get to be the same and do the same things. And then March hits and I go in super-drive; gotta get this and that done before I turn 24, or 25, or 26, or in this year's case 27. For me, March is both the beginning and the end. The beginning of my next year of being this age, and the end of my previous year - for both my relationship and my life. March is my cornerstone of every year. This month, I am extra motivated to do everything I can to make 2015, and my 27th year of life, and my 5th year with my beautiful partner, the most amazing one yet.
