AJ planned a flight to Wendover for our two year anniversary. We spent the night at the Rainbow Hotel chowing down at the buffet and enjoying a relaxing night away from home. The following day we flew up to Logan to grab a quick lunch at my favorite place, Great Harvest. I found this darling necklace on Etsy at a little shop called Gem Passion Jewelry  and had it inscribed with an A and M in commemoration of our two years together. If you’d like to read the post from our one year anniversary it can be found here.

Happy Two Years lover bum

“There are four pillars to a happy marriage:
respect one another as individuals; soft answers; financial honesty; family prayer.”  

Today marks a mere two years of marriage. Two years. Sometimes I can’t believe it’s already been two years. Sometimes I can’t believe we actually made it two years. Marriage has been challenging. It has been eye-opening, educating, frustrating, and humbling. Marriage has taught me many things about myself, about AJ as well, but mostly about learning to endure to the end. Yet, through all the tiny struggles, it’s those moments of laughter, those moments of pure bliss that make the whole thing worthwhile. The small and simple things are what remind me of why I chose him to spend the rest of my life with. He’s the one who knows me better than I know myself, can calm me down after a storm, knows exactly what to say to put me in my place, can keep calm and speak reason, can be understanding and kind, yet always finds a way to make me laugh. He’s the perfect one for me. One time when I asked him why he married me he said, “Because we’re soul mates.” 
Simple as that. 

I believe the key to a happy and successful marriage is this:
“Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
(That and shopping money)

Quote of the Day: 
While walking single-file through a rack of clothes at Target with AJ at the front he turns back and says to me: “You’re walking into a trap.”
(*Nice of him to at least warn me that the air between him and I was now contaminated, if you get my drift)

We’re going to the parade, lighting off fireworks, and firing up the grill. My brother’s coming into town from Japan with his wife and babe. It’s gonna be quite the party. What are you doing today?

I think it’s time for a Vegas trip.
Quote of the Day:
[singing that “Hey Mickey” song in the bathroom]
Me: “Hey Mickey you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind,  hey mickey!”
[AJ says something from the bedroomI swing my head into the room]
Me: “What’d you say?”
AJ: “When’s your album coming out?”
I leave you with a secret to spice up that boring old brownie mix.


Holla at your boy! I love you bayba loo!
