Anniversary day

August 4th  •  Posted in Lifestyle

As you probably already know from my One Year Together post, we had our first anniversary last week and you also probably can remember we met in Milan the very first time one year ago; so for our first anniversary we decided to re-live it all like it happened the first time, and met in the exact same spot we found each other one year ago.

The weather was pretty similar to last year, it all started with a pretty hot sun up in the sky, then it suddenly became rainy and a big bad storm was right upon us without we could even realize, with no regrets from me about deciding to wear my summer rain shoes (read: thicker loafers). Last year though, the sun came back after a while, but this year we left each other in the evening with the same rainy and cold weather as before. Even though we would had much more enjoyed our anniversary day without the rain, it really made us remember the first time we met and made everything a lot more alike.

We spent our morning wandering around, eating and buying noodles to bring home (because we’re obsessed), then went for two lemon & strawberry water ice when the weather was still super hot and we couldn’t even walk around without looking like some sweaty messes, but as soon as we decided to walk to Parco Sempione (where we spent our first afternoon wandering around and chatting a lot), the sky became darker and the weather chillier and when we reached the Sforza castle the storm was there and we has been actually stuck there for a hour or more just because the rain was too heavy to let us walk somewhere else. Lastly, as soon as the rain allowed us to move, we headed over a safer place, a Cafè, ordered two pieces of cake and two Marocchino and stayed there chatting and talking and laughing for a few more hours until it was time to take the train and go home.

We snapped some pictures of the day and thought to share them with you hoping you can enjoy them! I always love seeing Milan and it was nice to wander around like a tourist with the camera on the shoulder (no one asking for directions!) even though I’m not a huge fan of the tourist mode when it rains, and that’s for sure.

  • This is too cute! Wishing you happier days and more adventures ahead 🙂 xx

    • Glad you liked it 🙂 x

  • This is lovely, such a nice way to spend your anniversary, and even more fitting that the weather was similar. Sometimes rain can make a nice change and make you visit places you might not have gone in to just for some shelter 🙂 Happy anniversary!

    • Thank you, you’re definitely right! x

  • Hannah

    This is such a sweet post! Hope you guys had a lovely day and many more to come!


    • Thank you so much Hannah from both of us! x

  • This is so cute! Happy anniversary xo

  • This is a lovely idea! My bf and I met at a party so I don’t think it would be as fun to recreate. As it was at someones house, that would probably cause a few technical issues! 😉
    Shame about the rain, but sometimes it adds a little atmosphere and excitement. I do like the rain 🙂

    Really lovely to read and lovely photos too. I really like the close ups of you two 🙂

    I’m glad I came across your little slice of the internet 🙂 I think it’s going to be a lovely read to add to my day!

    • I like the rain too but not that much when I’m wearing summer clothes and am wanderning around a city – thank God I brought an umbrella “just in case”! But all in all it was really nice and something particular to remember 😉

      Thanks x

  • This is such a cool and beautiful post! Love the idea of capturing moments like these in photos so you can look back 🙂

    • It will be so nice to look back to them in a pair of year time! x

    So, so cute – would never have guessed you had been together for so little time! A lovely meet-up story too, far better than my maths-class-in-sixth-form! x

    • Every story is special in its own way I think! But yes, we met in real life only one year ago but know each other since a long long while ago though! x

  • Happy anniversary!! Also, your eyes are so beautiful! That is my favorite color!

  • This is soooo cute and such a great idea.

    Your photos are beautiful :o)
