Anniversary #2

This past February 10th Joel and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. We had a little weekend get away, so the day of, we had a fun breakfast, then Joel came home for lunch with flowers!!! We then had a romantic candlelight dinner at home. Then this past Friday we headed to Hot Springs Arkansas where we spent our honeymoon! We were going to stay at my Aunt's lake house and revisit all special sights of our past.

We arrived Friday night around 6:45, just in time to get ready for our dinner reservation at Belle Arti Italian restaurant that we ate at on Valentine's Day 2 years ago. It was wonderful! We dressed up and were seated right across from the piano player and were serenaded while we ate.

Saturday we walked around downtown all morning remembering and make new memories. A picnic in the park, and window shopping was all apart of the fun.

Next was a Starbucks run. But not just any Starbucks. This one was the one we went to on our honeymoon, and received free coffee just for being newlyweds! Next was a trip to Walmart to get valentine cards and candles for our romantic evening at home.

Sunday we ate Breakfast at the little Colonial Pancake house that was packed. And being pregnant, I of course had to go to the bathroom, which you had to get to by going all the way through the small crowded kitchen. There too was a line, so there I stood in the kitchen of this restaurant waiting for the bathroom, and nobody thought it was weird except me! Sunday afternoon we went and took more pictures of memorable places, walked through the mall looking for sunglasses for me, and then home for lunch. Overall, we had such a wonderful time. It was a lot more special than I thought it was going to be. Seeing everything again that made our honeymoon so special, made our 2nd anniversary ever so much more special.

Happy Anniversary! I can hardly believe it's been two years already! Kerry and I will celebrate 7 years in April. Time sure does fly when you're having SO MUCH FUN with the love of your life eh? Congrats Isreal by the way, I didn't even know you were expecting until a few weeks ago and you're half way done. Kids will change your life forever, and there will be days when you'd sell them for a penny but buy them back for a dime. :) Let me know if there's anything I can do for you. God Bless!
