This weekend was the Columbus Day holiday and we were invited to attend our friend’s 10th anniversary party and vow renewal. In fact, we were asked to “stand up” for them. When I was first asked about this a couple months ago, I was disturbed. I had never really given much thought to vow renewal, in general it’s something that people who are my parents or grandparents’ ages may consider on a noteworthy anniversary, a 25th or a 50th. In my mind, the thought of vow renewal did not go hand in hand with anyone our age or younger. In fact, to me it rather seemed as if “weren’t you sure the first time around?” That being said, it was a nice little ceremony, they each wrote their own vows and they seemed quite happy.
