Cheese Anniversary

Big Ball o' Cheese
You know how each wedding anniversary supposedly has a different type of gift associated with it, such as paper, wood, silver, or diamonds? Well, perhaps there’s a similar gift symbolism for expat/immigration anniversaries. If so, it would seem that cheese is the two-year anniversary gift.

On Friday, when we went to the Potdeksel to meet up with some friends, they surprised us with that lovely wheel of cheese you see. It even came in a charmingly Dutch gift box.

It’s a delicious wheel of good ol’ Hollandse Edam, looking quite official with its stamps and identifiers.

Most importantly, though, it’s delicious! Heerlijk! Lekker!

We have fabulous friends!

    • Both the cheese and the friends are greatly enjoyed! In fact, I think a little nibble of cheese right now would tide me over until dinner. 🙂

  1. I honestly don’t think there’s any nicer gift than that of cheese–and you deserve all the best gouda in the world, Ali. Congratulations on two amazing years!
