2 Years Ago Today

Two years ago today, this happened:

I know it’s kind of silly, to single out this day in our relationship, but it was a big one, and definitely one of the happiest moments of my entire life.  I tell Chris that no matter what, each June 11th will always mean something to me because it was a day that changed our lives forever.

As each year passes, I learn more and more about love.  This year, I’ve learned about the true meaning of “in sickness and health” and “in good times and bad.”  I never thought we’d experience so much in such a short amount of time after getting engaged, and now married, but we’re here and we’re strong.

I’m continually reminded why I said “yes” two years ago today, and I feel incredibly lucky to have married my best friend.

Chris, I love you.  Always.

One Year Ago Today

One year ago today, this happened:

It was a wonderfully magic surprise; a day filled with love and laughter, and it’s a day that will always be special for us.  Today, I love him more than I did a year ago, and I can’t wait to see where life takes us in the next 365 days where we can remember this day again.

One thing I’ve learned this year?  He should always remember why he asked, and she should always remember why she said yes.

2011: Best. Year. Ever.

2011 was the best year ever.  No, seriously, I’m not kidding.  So many incredible things happened this year and I’m sad to see it go.  Hopefully 2012 will fantastic, but I’m pretty sure not much can rival this year!

We started the  year off with a bang by going to the Winter Classic in Pittsburgh!

In February, we bought our first house!

We got thisclose to President Obama at the Memorial Day Wreath Laying at Arlington National Cemetary!

We got engaged!

We got married!

Added a new country (Curacao) to the passport!

…and we hosted our very FIRST Thanksgiving!

Bon Voyage, 2011 – you’ve been amazing and I’ll remember you forever.  Xoxoxoxoxoxo!
