Last Monday, August 18, Matt and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. I seriously can't believe we've been married for 2 years already...together for over 6 and 1/2 years. And now we're going to have a baby. It's been an amazing journey and I seriously fall more in love with him every day. He's my best friend. My soul mate. My rock. My everything.
We decided to keep with the traditional anniversary gifts (cotton for 2nd anniversary) and exchanged gifts Friday night. When we do exchange gifts we usually keep them simple and inexpensive - we tend to like to go do something/enjoy a nice evening out/etc rather than buy each other expensive gifts (and since we'd be away on vacation we knew we wanted spend that money doing something and enjoying a nice dinner out somewhere.) Anyways, I bought him a new CrossFit t-shirt and he got me this pillow:
I absolutely LOVE it!! Whenever, he says 'I love you' to me I'll usually say I love you more...and we'll banter back and forth a few times - so really, it's quite perfect for us. It's a constant reminder of one of those little things that we do between us that just makes me smile and love him more and more.
On the actual day of our anniversary we exchanged cards (my favorite thing EVER for birthdays/anniversaries/etc!) and Matt had one more surprise up his sleeve...
Once again - he knows me so well and is so very clever (cotton candy is one of my favorite things EVER and just happens to play into the cotton anniversary....dang, he's GOOD!) We spent the rest of the day hitting up the gym - hanging at the pool - enjoying a nice dinner on the bay - and relaxing on the boardwalk. It was a great day to spend with my love and we could't have asked for a better day together.
Being a wife is my most favorite thing. And navigating through this crazy thing called life with him at my side makes me the happiest girl ever. I can't wait for the next 10...20...40 years together...no matter what these years may bring. I know it won't always be sunshine and rainbows...but together we can do anything. Happy Anniversary, my love. Here's to MANY, MANY more.
