Wow, has it really been 2 years already? A part of me thinks that it feels more like one year, but considering all the things we’ve done since tying the knot, I guess it really isn’t that surprising. We’ve been on a bit of a wedding marathon lately, attending the most recent one this past weekend. It was great to see our friends Matt and Rachel tie the knot since Matt was a groomsman in our wedding and Rachel is his perfect match. The bonus was being able to stay with Drew’s grandparents, and catch up with some family and college friends. Drew and I are definitely at that age where all our friends are getting engaged or married. And now they’re having babies now too! A couple from our house church, Joey and Anna, welcomed a baby girl Logan last Saturday.
Not wanting to be outdone by our wonderful first year anniversary trip to Chicago, we planned to extend the anniversary celebration a few days. Tuesday night we went to dinner at The Lawrence, which we hadn’t been to since last December. It was just as delicious as we remembered–how can one go wrong with chocolate truffle cake? You know you love someone when you’re willing to share your dessert with someone without constantly wanting to jab their hand out of the way with your fork. We wrapped up the night on the couch, looking through our wedding photo album and reminiscing. I hope that’s a tradition we continue every year.
We continued the celebration last night, attending the Falcons vs. Bengals preseason opener at the Georgia Dome. I hadn’t seen my Bengals play in quite a few seasons and Drew had never been to an NFL game before, so it was the perfect opportunity. Drew did a great job picking out seats as we were just a few rows up from the field. Just as I showed Drew my love by sharing dessert, Drew showed his loyalty by donning my old Bengals jersey. That, my friends, is true loyalty. As for converting him from a Packers fan to a Bengals fan, I won’t be holding my breath.
To avoid being too mushy, I’ll wrap things up there. All I can say is that the past 2 years of my life have easily been the greatest. There’s no one else on this planet better suited for me; I’m not sure if I completely believe in soul mates but I know that Drew is my perfect match. I can’t imagine going through life with anyone else. So thank you to my husband for being my biggest supporter, encourager, confidante and friend. Here’s too many, many more years!
