2 years and going strong.

I'm a terrible wife. Or at least incredibly forgetful. I can't believe I haven't blogged about our 2 year anniversary...that was in May. Whoops. So...
May 29, 2010: The beginning of forever

Chuck and I have officially been married for 2 years! We were married on May 29, 2010, one of my favorite days. ever. Since Mom Krebs birthday is on the 29th, we decided to celebrate the Saturday before. And because Chuck planned our one year anniversary in Fiji, it was my turn to plan our anniversary. Of course, how could I top a resort in Fiji? But, I tried.

I mean, really, does it get much better?
Awesome Anniversary.

I wanted to reflect on our first two years of marriage and so I tried to plan activities that were memorable for us and that stood for different stages of our marriage.

First, Jackson and I got up and made breakfast for Dad in bed. He was really happy to be able to sleep in on Saturday (He usually wakes up early with Jack so I can sleep in...reason #4,578 why I love my husband). I had made Chuck breakfast in bed on our honeymoon for his birthday. So, in order to honor our honeymoon, I did it again.

Breakfast in bed.

 Second, we went over to mom's townhouse and went for a walk around the sidewalk path. The original plan was to go to Jacobsen Park, but we decided to stay close to air-conditioning since it was pretty hot outside. We went for a walk to commemorate our first year of marriage. Our first year was full of, well, firsts. Starting our first holiday traditions, having sleepovers in the living room during the Christmas season, traveling all over, and plenty more :)

Third, we went to lunch at the Lexington Country Club, where we held our reception. It was fun to go back in time to our wedding day and relive some of the wonderful memories. (Thanks to Grandma Woods for hanging out with Jackson!)

 Fourth, we cooked a staple dish in the Krebs home: Yellow Curry. This is a favorite of ours and represents us well. We used this time to celebrate our second year of marriage. We graduated from BYU, had our beautiful son, went to Fiji for four months, got into UK Law, and moved to Kentucky! Our second year was quite eventful.

Lastly, we flashed back to our teenage years when we first met. We watched a movie at home to commemorate our first date on July 20th, 2004. That date was the start of a forever friendship that has blossomed into a beautiful marriage.

I was telling Chuck just a few days ago how much we have grown into each other. When we first got married I thought I couldn't love a person any more than I did at that moment. I was wrong. My love has grown and multiplied a million times over since that day. I was looking through a "love box" that I made for Chuck for Christmas 2010 where I wrote 100 reasons why I loved him. I realized that I had so many different and new reasons why I love him now. I'm so grateful to be married to a righteous, loving, ever-happy, helpful, out-going, talkative, funny and forgiving husband. He's a pretty awesome Dad and husband if you ask me :)

Bring on year number three!
