2 years




Two years ago, we had been married for approximately 30 minutes.




We had just bought our house and had barely moved in.




I didn't have a job. We didn't even have grass or trees in our yard.



Two years ago, we left our life as college kids for twenty something DINKS (Double-Income No Kids). Well, it became double-income that October.


We made some new friends, lost some friends and gained a lot of knowledge. We planted some trees and our house became more cozy and comfortable by the day.


This past year, I had my best birthday at 23! Nothing beats bellydancing at a Greek restaurant. And let me tell you, Ben can shake it.



This year, we got our first Christmas tree! We hung a wreath on the door and lit up our tree for the world (fine, the fence out the window) to see. Stockings were hung on the hutch door knobs and merriness was in the air.





This year, we got puppies. We traded clean carpets for stained ones and became intoxicated with two furry creatures that have us wrapped around their little paws. They snuggle with us in the evenings and greet us in the morning. All we see is two white bellies with flailing paws and hyper tongues eager for kisses bouncing up and down at the kitchen each morning.


And things couldn't be better. We may work a lot and spend our evenings on the couch with the puppies instead of out and about, but I couldn't be happier. I love the salmon Sundays, the late night oatmeal cookies and the nights we watch Old Westerns. I love puttering around the yard and taking drives. I even love how your back never stops itching. Darling, after two years you still make me laugh so hard I cry and make my toes tingle with joy. I love you.



After all, it's been 2 years.

Duckie, I love the last picture best of all! You look delirious with love! You are the sweetest couple. A belated Happy Anniversary! May there be many, many more and more than the pitter patter of itty bitty doggie feet to keep you company in the years to some, as sweet as they may be! I seriously wish the pair of you the best. How does that go? Oh yes. "Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be." May it ever be so!
