Do you know what today is?
I’ve always loved that song!
It’s our anniversary! Yep, today marks 2 years of wedded bliss for John and I. (I use the term “bliss” loosely) On 10/9/10 my best friend and I took our vows to love and bla bla bla until John dies.
OK let me stop.
Seriously, I’m surprisingly excited about this anniversary. We’re not celebrating big, and I know John will forget to get me a card like he does on every birthday/anniversary/valentines day/Christmas… but for some reason I’m just excited about the day.
We made it through 2 years. The first year was easy peasy. This year we had some stress…namely the old apartment drama, a pregnancy, an interstate move, going to a single income household and…oh yeah…this little thing called… the birth of our first child. That’s a lot!
Last year we celebrated 1 year by going to Vegas and this year we’re celebrating by going to….::drumroll please:: … dinner!! We actually celebrated last night at 340 Grill, our favorite Hoboken restaurant because John’s in school ’til late tonight. Booo.
To John: (cuz I know you’re reading today!!)
