Two Years Today


Two years ago today I married my love Chase.  I can't believe we have been married for that long!  And that little.  It feels like we have been married forever in some ways and in other ways, it feels like we got married yesterday.  I know I am lucky to have married such a good man who loves me unconditionally.   He makes me a better person.  We have learned so much about ourselves and each other while on this journey together.  And it's a journey that will last forever.  

So since we got married in December we go pretty light with gifts on our anniversary (because we celebrate Christmas).  One tradition we have is making a photo book from our personal photos from the past years adventures.   Granted this is the second year we have done it, but by george, it is a tradition!  We also go out to dinner.   It's sushi tonight!  Have a lovely December 16th.  It only comes once a year!

i hope you have a sweet anniversary night, miss. you two deserve it. and honestly, that photo of you is so so lovely. you both look so thrilled you can almost feel it!

i love the tradition you have. gifts you get each other may be lost or used over time, but a photo album of the year is the perfect way to celebrate. i think i might adopt the same, if you don't mind :)

Congrats! You are such a beautiful couple. And a photo book and going out for dinner is nicer than gifts, I think. That way you are sharing your time and experiences, which is the best thing you can give someone.
