Hey friends! Chet and I recently celebrated our SECOND YEAR of marriage and we marked the occasion with a….couch?! That’s right, in honor of our 2nd anniversary we replaced our old (and very worn) Ikea number and got the absolute BABE of a sofa pictured above. I mean it IS fabric and there’s probably some cotton in there somewhere, right? (IDK I’m not a textile expert or anything.)
I’m still a far way off from the entryway of my dreams as you can see above, but I just had to share this lil home decor update anyways. So in love with this couch, you guys!

(Please disregard the staple that was left behind from the packaging which I carelessly forgot to remove because I was too excited but thankfully got rid of before it impaled anyone’s ankles, AHEM!)
I also gifted Chet with a pair of shoes and he got me 5 lovely hosta seedlings that we planted in our backyard along the house. Year 2 was pretty terrific!
Now, in honor of this marriage milestone, I thought I’d round-up a few “Cotton Anniversary” gift ideas. (Just in case you’re not buying the whole couch as cotton option, lol!)
2nd Anniversary Gift Ideas:
Neck Tie or Scarf,
Table Cloth and Napkins,
or Your Wedding Vows Printed on Cotton Paper.
Have you celebrated any fun milestones lately? How did you mark the occasion?

Love the new couch! We had to buy our current couch based on what we could fit in our last apartment and I absolutely HATE it! It fits in our current rental home okay too, but when we move it’s either getting sold or going in a basement (that would be idea…just to even have a basement!) It’s funny how when you reach this age the idea of buying the perfect couch is just the most exciting thing ever! I DREAM about our future couch every time I’m sitting on this horrible one haha.
Oh my gosh, I know right?! If only my 21 year old self knew how much a couch purchase would thrill me at this age! lol!
This reminded me that I wanted a new sofa haha! Oh my goodness, yours is truly gorgeous😍
Thank you! I’m so in love with it. 🙂
I love how your list is so practical – mine is always like “holiday here, night out there, super fancy meal here” etc etc. 😀
Oh totally – I’m super into experiences over material goods. I was just trying to come up with ideas that would fit the tradition of giving something cotton on a second anniversary. 🙂
These are SUCH great ideas! I never would have thought of a hammock!
Thanks! We were lucky enough to get hammocks as a wedding present and I thought it was such a wonderful gift. 🙂
