Today, Hubby and I are celebrating our second wedding anniversary. Well, actually, we celebrated this past weekend in Seattle, today we're both back at work after a week-and-a-half off. Nevertheless, today is a celebration. We're celebrating the milestone that this two years of wedded bliss.
What have I learned in these past two years? I've learned (as cliche as it sounds) that our love gets better with age.
As we're entering our second year of marriage and the seventh year of our relationship, some may say that we're entering the "terrible two's" or that we're likely going to experience the "seven year itch". I've found it to be quite the opposite, however. If anything, I think that this is the best point in our relationship. We're in synch. We're communicating. We're compromising. We're working together as as team; Team T&A. Sure, we're not perfect and we've got our off days too, but for the most part, we're rockin' it.
I remember taking a moment on our wedding day to silently hope that we would always remain as happy as we were in that moment. I never thought that it would be possible to be happier, I thought that there was no way that I could handle any more love. I was wrong. I'm leaps and bounds happier now, two years later.
Happy anniversary, babe. I love you more than words.
I saved this Wedding Moment as the last because it means so much to me. To me, the vows are the most important part of the wedding. They are simple words strung together as a promise to the one you love. They are the words that I often refer back to when we're going through an ebb. I promised to respect, encourage, and forgive him. I gave him my love, and he gave me his.
Our vows were selected for us my our Reverend. We first read them and knew that they were perfect; they were exactly the words that we wanted to say to each other with our friends and family as witnesses. They are the words that will remain ours for the rest of our lives.
Amanda, I receive you as my wife; to laugh with you in joy, to grieve with you in sorrow, to grow with you in love. I promise to be your faithful husband as long as we both shall live. I promise to respect you, to encourage you, to forgive you and give hope to you. I give you my love.
Trevor, I receive you as my husband; to laugh with you in joy, to grieve with you in sorrow, to grow with you in love. I promise to be your faithful wife as long as we both shall live. I promise to respect you, to encourage you, to forgive you and give hope to you. I give you my love.

September is, by far, my favourite month out of the year. I guess it's no coincidence that we got married in September, and that we usually like to take most of our vacations during this fabulous month. Now, I know that once we have kids September vacationing will be a distant memory. I'm pretty sure that our kids' teachers would hate us if we took our children out of school for two weeks while we went travelling around the world. Yep, so not gonna happen. So, we're enjoying our children-less years and soaking up all the last days of summer by taking some much-awaited (and much-deserved) vacation time. Hubby and I are working today and tomorrow then we're getting the heck outta here. Our destination (or should I say, destinations)? Camrose, Alberta and Seattle, Washington.
The whole time during the wedding planning process, I was CONVINCED that Hubby and I would stay and party until the bitter end of our wedding night. Well, I was wrong. We were both having the time of our lives, but the later it got, the more exhausted we were. All we wanted to do was spend a couple precious moments together, just the two of us, on our special day. So, we decided to leave the reception earlier than anticipated and head for the hotel. We decided, however, to have one last dance before we left. So, we had the DJ put on Don't Stop Belivin' by Journey and called all of our guest up to dance with us.
