The start of May is always a bit strange for me. Today, May 2nd, is the day my grandmother passed away – now already 11 years ago! May 7th is my grandfather’s birthday (her husband) and he would have turned 94! He passed away about 3.5 years ago. But then May 10th marks the anniversary of me and my boyfriend. We’ve been together for 8 years now!
I don’t always consciously remember these dates considering my grandparents, but somehow they’re always stuck in the back of your mind, and a small thing might make you remember. So the start of May is both looking back at what was, but also looking forward to the future me and my boyfriend still have ahead of us. I can’t believe it’s already been 8 years! I’m not sure how we’re going to celebrate. We’re not really the people for big gestures and fancy dinners. We might just celebrate with a good glass of wine, some snacks and a fun movie – chilling on the couch :) Or since Lucifer season 4 is coming May 8th, we might just binge-watch that together ^^
How do you remember your lost loved ones and how do you celebrate anniversaries?
