Create a card that has one envelope for every year you have been together attached to it. You can then fill these little envelopes with things like your favourite memory from that year together as a couple, or a small picture – taken the year that envelope represents. If you keep the card, you can add to it each year to create a wonderful collection of all your memories together!
