Six Years Down.

Today marks six years of marital bliss for us.

{Editor's Note: Yes, I just said "marital bliss."}

Our love story started out pretty heavy
and the excitement hasn't slowed down yet.

There have been some hard times on this road, 
but we're lucky enough to be each other's best friend...
so somehow, even the tough times seem kinda sweet
when you look back on them and see that we grew closer.

{Sorry, did I just hear you gag?}

Tyler always keeps me on my toes
by making it a point to celebrate our anniversary
someway... and somewhere special.

January 6, 2007

Our wedding...

with a honeymoon in Prague to follow
that took Tyler overseas for the first time...


Tyler surprised me with a trip to NYC for our first anniversary...
we had so little money
but had the best time together
walking around the city, eating pizza & hot dogs
and feeling so cool and grown up.


For our second anniversary,
it was off to Victoria, BC for a cozy weekend 
somewhere random & exciting.

We felt very swanky because our Luxury Link package
gave us free massages & dinner at our hotel.


Back to NYC for our 3rd anniversary,
but this time- we brought our friends, Anthony & Kellee 
to join along in the festivities
kicking off the first of many trips together.


This was our first year living in England
and we celebrated our fourth anniversary 
by wandering lonely canals in Venice
and windy hillside towns in Tuscany.

PS. January is a great month to have an anniversary
because traveling to cool places is so much cheaper.


Last year was our fifth...
and somehow, NYC seemed to be the right decision
officially making it our "every other anniversary" destination.

I'm so thankful we had pictures taken to celebrate,
thank you Victoria for capturing this special day in our marriage.

And this year?

With two babies on the way
and an abdomen quickly nearing the size of a glacier?

Well, tonight we are headed to pizza & a movie.

So would we call this the end of an era?


Tyler's taking me to Venice 
later this month to celebrate
with our friends, Tyler & Amber.

It's a combined Christmas/Anniversary/Babymoon present
since we are exceptionally poor this year...
but we couldn't miss the chance to squeeze in
another adventure before these girls arrive.

So if you happen to be in Venice
and notice a slow-moving gondola
chugging down a canal at an angle that eerily resembles the sinking Titanic,
just wave to this 8-mth pregnant woman
sitting in the back with the giant cone of gelato in hand.

I really can't wait...
and I can't wait to see where this adventurous life
takes the two (four?) of us next.

Happy Anniversary, Love.
