Today is our eighth wedding anniversay.  When researching what the traditions are around this particular wedding anniversary I came upon this:

The number eight is considered particularly auspicious in Chinese culture because it sounds similar to the word for 'prosper' or 'wealth'. It is pronounced like "bah" in Mandarin (pinyin: bā).

I also found this:

Traditional 8th wedding anniversary gifts have a theme of Bronze and Pottery.

A Contemporary or Modern Eighth anniversary gift has a theme of Linen and Lace.
The Flowers associated with the Eighth anniversary are Clematis
The Gemstone list shows Aventurine and Multi-colored Tourmaline are the gems associated with this Anniversary

There are so many things to say.  There are so many things that we remember from that day.  But the best thing from that day? 

I do.
