My husband and I have been married for six years (together nine) and we do something like this on every anniversary. We check in with how we're each individually feeling in our relationship. What feels stuck. What feels good. What we want to try or experiment. We talk through our hopes and dreams and fears for the following year. It always feels good to acknowledge that we made it but also take a closer look at our last year together. It's always lovely to see what felt difficult or hard or wonderful to me, maybe didn't to him or vice versa.

We do it with birthdays too but on an individual level. - What went well for you personally this year? What didn't? What can I - as your partner - help you achieve in this next year of life?
