Anniversary Reflections: Year Two

Two years; two wonderful years since my favorite day ever.  It's been a year of fun, new adventures, and love.  Mike consistently does everything he can to make my life better and easier, and loves me with everything he has.  We celebrated our anniversary on Sunday night with cotton-themed gifts (two NFL tee shirts for him and a Sir Purr stuffed animal, Charleston tea towel, and sneaky KS necklace "that comes in a cotton bag!!" for me) and a night out at High Cotton - he's too clever.
This year, he didn't get mad when I chose the Panthers (even after all of his Eagles brainwashing) as my football team.  However, he did create a Star Wars fanatic!  We also lost a combined 60 pounds and ran our first 10k together.
I went through two eye surgeries this year, and he could not have been more supportive.
We agreed on literally everything when it came to our house and made it through the home building process, closing this summer.  I can't wait to share more of the DIYs we've been doing together over the past few weeks!
When my uncle passed away this summer, he didn't think twice and drove us the 6 hours to Tampa to be with my family.
We even had the chance to walk down the aisle together... again (!!!)... at his sister's wedding during one of our trips back to see our families in New England: fall, winter, spring, and summer.

We love the idea of keeping our anniversary photos going, so my wonderful friend, Amanda, took these shots when she came to visit earlier this month.  I can't wait to look back years from now and see how we've changed.  Since last year, my hair has grown a bit, and like I mentioned, we've lost a little weight!
This year is going to be one filled with adventure for us.  Last year, we visited a few new cities: Denver, Savannah, and Myrtle Beach, but this year we will have a full year of our Southwest Companion Pass (Every time Mike flies somewhere, I fly for free - no joke!  Let me know if you'd like more info!), so I know we will be traveling a lot in 2017 before starting to think more about our future plans.

Happy anniversary - and congrats on all of your milestones - especially dropping 60 pounds between the two of you. That's huge! Almost as huge as the Southwest Companion Pass - super jealous but definitely take advantage of that!
