Another year, another anniversary forgotten. Kristen Bell's Instagram for her and Dax Shepard's seventh anniversary was not unlike the tributes she's penned in the past in that they... well, they forgot again. You see, per People, the two were actually married on Oct. 17, 2013. But they can never quite manage to keep the date straight.

"Well, it's that time of year again," Bell wrote alongside a selfie of herself and Shepard on Oct. 19. "The anniversary of the day each year when we say to each other 'wasn't our anniversary last week at some point?' I love you, @daxshepard, and I always will."

Last year, on Oct. 21, 2019, in honor of what was actually their sixth wedding anniversary, Bell posted a tribute for what she thought was their fifth anniversary (LOL). In it, she explained why neither she nor Shepard can ever really remember what day they actually tied the knot on.

"We were reminded by family and friends that at some point last week, it was our 5 year wedding anniversary," she wrote. "In truth, neither of us remember which day. Thats because we have been living the celebration of our commitment every moment since. I find when you are living with gratitude each moment, the dates become irrelevant. To get to wake up next to someone who has put hard work, respectful fights, patience, understanding and gratitude into your relationship is the definition of love. I will never remember the date of our anniversary @daxshepard, and i know you wont either. And thats just one more thing i love about us."

Aaand here's the one she thought she was posting for their "5 year wedding anniversary," which was actually their sixth:

Per Insider, Shepard first proposed to Bell in 2009. That said, the two chose not to delay tying the knot out of solidarity for some same-sex couples who could not legally get married then. Bell re-proposed to Shepard on June 26, 2013, the same day the Supreme Court ruled that California's ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.

She wrote in a sweet tweet, "@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove."

Needless to say, he said yes. Afew months later they tied the knot with a super low-key ceremony. "We went to the Beverly Hills Courthouse," Shepard recounted during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live shortly after. "And all in, with fuel to get there, $142 out the door."

If there's an award for most low-key couple of all time, I think they deserve it.
