2nd Anniversary!!!

Two years ago, I married my best friend. 

 I will forever remember the day.  It was Saturday, September 5th 2009, and I had been staying with my parents for the 2 weeks before.    My Mom and I ran around like crazy people getting all of the last minute details in order and it was rainy and cool, the majority of the time.   But on that magical day, it was 75 degrees and Sunny with clear blue skies.  Someone was smiling down on me : )  About two hundred and twenty five of our closest family and friends gathered to help us celebrate and we exchanged our vows promising to love one another in good times and in bad, for the rest of our lives.  It was my fairytale wedding come true and I wouldn’t change a thing about it.  We toasted, ate,danced, and laughed all night long.  And the next day, I got to wake up next to my husband for the very first time : )

Last year the two of us celebrated our anniversary on the beach and watched our close friends get married
We had been trying to have a baby again for what felt like forever, even though it was only 4 months at the time, but we made a promise to one another to celebrate our love regardless of what was happening in our lives, and realizing how blessed we were….we had a great time with our friends! We thoroughly enjoyed what we did not know, but had hoped to be our last beach trip as a family of 2 (well,4 with our Buddies : )
This year we again celebrated our anniversary with a trip to the beach but as a family of 3 (or 5)
I know this picture was on an earlier post but unfortunately we didn’t get a single family picture together on the beach!  Next time for sure : )

Our actual anniversary was celebrated by Dan cooking an amazing paella dish, and drinking some wine (which he ordered and had shipped to our beach house from a winery we really enjoyed on our Napa trip last year)  The celebration continued on Tuesday night when we hired a babysitter to watch our Little Man and headed into downtown Charleston for a delicious dinner at a restaurant called Tristan.  It was a very modern restaurant, which was very quiet (since we waited until after the Labor Day Holiday to go) and we indulged in a delicious wine paring menu.  We chose a la carte dishes from their menu that stood out to us and asked if the General Manager along with the chef could pair the wines that they felt would go best with the dished.  I’m pretty sure a wine pairing menu is one of my favorite things in this world, and if I had the money, I would do it with every meal at a fine dining establishment.  It was a wonderful night spent with Dan, and we got to go home to our beautiful son! 

It was a perfect anniversary celebration and I wouldn’t have wanted  it any other way : )

So…A lot can change in a year…..and even more can change in two.  But change in this case was for the better, and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world!  I have the most amazing husband and the sweetest little boy to ever walk the face of the earth : )

I can only imagine what another 2 years will bring us : )
Here’s to many more Happy Aniversaries to Come!!
