two years

Monday, June 5, 2017

Two years ago today I walked down to aisle to say 'I Do' to my favorite person. June 5, 2015, is still the most exciting and magical day of my life! Our wedding was beyond perfect - everything I ever dreamed of. Every day since then hasn't always been perfect, but that's what marriage is all about: blending the good days and the bad days and sticking it out together, side by side, regardless of what life throws at you. The past two years have been filled with so many things, good and bad: tons of travel, our fair share of fights, injuries and medical issues, big decisions and some disagreements, buying and renovating our historical home, getting the world's cutest puppy, loving hard, eating a lot and enjoying life. C said we are no longer "newlyweds" which kind of makes me sad (currently taking it off my bio on all social platforms...booo), but it is so fun to experience every stage of marriage with my favorite human by my side. I can't wait to see what year three has in store!

To celebrate our anniversary, we brunched at The Drake and sipped cocktails at some of our favorite places around Oklahoma City (Hi, SidecarOak & Ore). We got ice cream at Roxy's (I've decided its a tradition since they served dessert at our wedding), I tried on my wedding dress (it fits), we read through our guest book and then watched our wedding video. It was such a fun Sunday Funday together and I'm excited to continue the celebration tonight on our actual anniversary with presents and dinner a la Cole.

Two years is the cotton anniversary -- any guesses on what C got me? I told him a Lulu tank would be a great cotton item and he can accessorize with some accessories like a clutch or jewelry. :)
