Happy Second Anniversary!


Today is our second wedding anniversary!  

"Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
So take my hand, and take my whole life too
Cause I can't help falling in love with you"

This was our first dance song (Can't Help Falling In Love by Ingrid Michaelson) and those words certainly hold a special place in my heart.

Honeymoon Seattle/Vancouver August 2012

Anniversaries have a way of showing us how quickly time flies by.  Just 365 days ago was our first wedding anniversary.  It's been a big year.  I'd say it's been one of the greatest growing years of my life yet, mentally, emotionally, and physically with baby boy growing inside!

Last year I described our beautiful wedding day and this year I want to reflect on all we've been through together in the last year.  I've just focused on my pregnancy on the blog, but life was full of a lot of other stuff too.  We made big decisions.  Decisions about moving (not now), house decisions (surprise renovations), job changes, money decisions, and more.  Big life stuff that required a lot of thought and long talks.  And of course a whole lot of love.  

And in the midst of all this, the biggest blessing of all happened.  We found out that right around our 2nd wedding anniversary we would be welcoming our baby boy into the world.  What a wonderful gift.  The most exciting gift of all!  I'm writing this now before we've met our baby boy.  We are beyond excited!  I will always remember this year because in this year we found out that we'd be having our baby boy.  

The day I met my husband, I felt like I was meeting my best friend.  Like I'd gone a lifetime without knowing him and a part of me had been missing, and then there he was!  There is no one else I'd rather have by my side.  He's the first person I want to talk to in the morning and the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.

 I'm also extremely proud of my husband and I because in the last year we were faced with big life challenges.  And together, we faced them, and are stronger for it.  We're a team that I'm honored to be a part of.  

 I have no idea what the next year will bring.  I couldn't have planned the last year if I tried and I have no intention of planning out the next.  I certainly am looking forward to our wonderful journey together though!

I love you with all my heart, hubby.  This post is for you.
