I think the idea of "topping it" implies that it has to be better, grander, more expensive than the first. But, I think that's not so. To us, "topping it" means putting thought and meaning behind what you're doing, and making it special. There's no pressure in that when it's fun, and you're together!
Here's a little peak into the Worley House anniversary: Orion and I have decided to stick with the "traditional" gift for each anniversary year, only rule: give the gift with a twist! For example, Paper is the traditional first year gift. Orion got me last year in addition to Bentley he made me this poem which he wrote about our first year together and burned the edges and made it look old and worn and gave it to me. Pretty cool huh? This year you'll just have to wait and see what we come up with.
