Did you forget our anniversary?
Gulp! Even if you’re not actually married, you could have forgotten an anniversary for a never ending list of occasions. Due to the power of Facebook we hardly ever forget birthdays but it would be pretty handy if it also flagged anniversaries.

They require balloons, a cake and at least one bottle of bubbles. A couple of my best friends have 3 anniversaries with there significant other.

In my opinion Anniversaries are simply a great excuse to celebrate and be proud and
