dating anniversary post-marriage: to celebrate or not?

To celebrate your dating anniversary post-marriage or not? It's something I've heard varying opinions on, and as today is mine and Justin's four year dating anniversary (woohoo!) the topic becomes top of mind for me. 

I'm the kind of person who enjoys celebrating …well… anything, so I'm all for it! I, of course, don't think it deserves the kind of grandiose celebration that a marriage anniversary deserves, but I do think it should be recognized.  It is the day it all really started, after all.

Not surprisingly, I have a picture from all of our anniversaries over the past few years, so let's take a little stroll down memory lane.

I feel it necessary to explain that we coincidentally did our engagement photos on our three year anniversary. We don't always have people take pictures of Justin holding me in the air whilst giggling and gazing into each other's eyes. I promise.

This will actually be the first March 27 since we've known each other that we will not be taking a photo, because Justin's out of town for work! (sad face). If he were here, though, I would like to think we'd have a little celebration.  What do you think? Do you celebrate your dating anniversary even though you're married? Or do you think it's silly?

I think it's fun to remember the dating anniversary. That's the MOMENT it all started. Maybe not worthy of a BIG DEAL, but maybe an extra dessert or a cheers of wine that night. But I always enjoy celebrating :)!

We do something small- like make a nice dinner or go out to dinner or have a glass of wine or something. Any excuse to celebrate is ok in my book!

Haha - love the giggling and staring into each other's eyes disclaimer. We all know you lie ;).
