Hunka Hunka Burnin' Love

Yesterday was our 2nd anniversary!!! YEAH!! Tony took the day off to celebrate. We started this day (one which by nature of celebrating our love MUST be without even the littlest argument!) tired and cranky!! Why you ask? Well for starters we hadn't gotten to bed before 3:30 am the past two nights. Don't ask.

On Second thought, Do Ask. WHY? We have a little get-together with my Brother and Sister-in-law just about every Saturday night to play this We love the wii. We get a bunch of junk food we would never eat if it were just us and play to our hearts content. We TRY to get home at a reasonable hour, but usually we're home pretty late. Ruthie sleeps on the couch while we play games! But, since Tony had taken off work for our anniversary, we went back on Sunday night for round 2. We have a blast. We PAY big-time the next morning. You know, we're not getting any younger!!

So, after trying to stay loving and kind and happy, we didn't get really moving until after 1pm!! We ended up at Target and the Mall for some good old window shopping! We had linner - that's the meal between lunch and dinner for those of you who are wondering- and ended the day at Starbucks!!

We did start a new tradition at linner- we told each other the 5 things we most love about them and the one thing we would want them to work on. It was such a wonderful conversation. The 5 things I most love about my man are: 1. His heart for the Lord, 2. How tender he is with our daughter and how he makes her laugh, 3. How much he truly loves me, 4. How tender he is with me and how sensitive he is with my emotions (even if he doesn't understand why it is the END of the world), and 5. How passionate he is about the things that he cares the most about.

Tony is one of God's greatest blessings in my life (the only other greatest blessing is Salvation!). I would not be a complete person without him and his love. It seems like these two years have flown by, and at the same same time I can't remember a time before he was in my life. He is my true love, my soul mate, the father of my sweet baby girl, and the one that I am honored to spend the rest of my life with. As always, we pray that God's perfect plan would be shown through our Marriage, and that by the Grace of God, when people look at us and our marriage they would see Jesus.

Happy Anniversary!!! I'm glad you had a good day. I love the idea you had about giving five things you love about each other and one thing to work on. That's a great idea!!
