Two Years. I Guess it's Time for a Sappy Post.

Why hello, my little Lovemuffins. 

Is that one word or two? I'm just gonna leave it at one.

Anyway. Today is August 10. That might not be a significant day for any of you, but it is a pretty important day to me and the husband. I even marked it in my planner. Right alongside my dinner plans and Mike's work schedule, see?
And don't go all hater on me for having to write it down - I'm super busy and would probably forget to get dressed in the morning if I didn't get so chilly after showering.

Okay, I got way off topic there. This is supposed to be a mushy post about how much I love and adore Michael and how happy I am to be with him. But you know what? I feel like he knows that, so I don't need to tell the world.
       
Instead, I'm going to tell you guys how much fun I have with him... and take a little journey through our second year of marriage in pictures.
Right before we left for Germany, we got anniversary pictures taken together. 
We moved to Germany in August and were welcomed by craptastic weather that didn't stop the entire time we were there.
             
 We went on a ton of trips - many cities in Germany plus France, Spain, Scotland, and the Czech Republic.

We spent some time Skyping with the family and friends we missed back home.
 We flew back into Kansas and spent some quality time with my parents.
 We played at the lake.
 We spent the 4th of July with Mike's parents in the Black Hills.
Now for the semi-mushy stuff. 

Michael - In the past year, I have come to love you more than I ever thought was possible. You are my best friend, my confidant, my companion, and my favorite trouble-maker. We have so much fun together, and I love that about us - our relationship is never too serious, and I think that's perfect.
              
I love that you love me for who I am, even though I'm easily stressed, high-strung, ridiculous, and sometimes get lost in the future instead of the present. I love that you let loose and aren't afraid to be yourself with me. I love your bear hugs, your smile, your stupid jokes, your teasing, your ninja coding skills, your "woman" jokes - I love it all.

Thanks for a great two years - I can't wait to see what the future brings. Maybe a mini-you? He'd have me wrapped around his little finger. Except I hope he doesn't look quite as... interesting as this little guy... girl... thing.
Oh, and in case you were looking for it... DAY FOUR, PEEPS!! After this week I'll just do weekly updates.

Happy belated annivesary! I'm so behind on blogging yet find myself eager to catch up with yours first. Quite a year y'all had and even crazier ones to come, I am sure.

How did that slow cooker sesame chicken turn out because that sounds fab!

Elsha Bodily said...

yay for marriage!!! What temple is that?

RadiantKristen said...

Happy Anniversary!

I once called my readers "Muffin", and everyone threw a fit. I worked in a group home for a year where the staff called each other "Love muffin" or "muffin". One of my readers said it was akin to giving someone a stripper name.

I love all of your funny faces in pictures. And I love that you didn't take your wedding photos too seriously. So cute!

Sara Louise said...

I think not taking things too seriously is a very vital part of a relationship. Life is serious enough.
Happy (belated) anniversary and cheers to many more fun years together :)
