Two years ago, Taylor and I tied the knot.
I could wax poetic about how much I love him and how happy we are, but I’ll spare you. For the most part.
I will tell you we are so very happy. And we enjoy being married. We enjoy each other’s company and laugh together… a lot.
Two years has passed in the blink of an eye. And we are looking forward to many more years to come.

Monday marked our 1 year anniversary of being married. The weekend started with a day trip on Saturday to visit my parents.
Our anniversary will forever be linked to Father’s day, since we actually got married on Father’s day last year. So I brought my dad a card as well as some homemade pico de gallo and tiramisu. I also promised a photo walk in the upcoming weeks since both of us like to take pictures, and he got me a nice DSLR camera for Christmas a couple years ago. We spent the day swimming and hanging out, which was lovely and relaxing.
Sunday, we basically hung around the house until it was time to get ready. We went to L’auberge du Lac in Lake Charles and ate at their Snake River Grill for our official anniversary dinner. We started the meal with lamb chop lollipops. I ate filet mignon and Taylor had wild boar wrapped in bacon. The wild boar tasted very good, but it too raw for my taste. I sipped a couple glasses of Malbec with dinner and we finished with dessert.
We spent a little time at the casino after dinner, but didn’t win anything before heading home.
We both took Monday off, the day of our actual anniversary. We cooked breakfast together (biscuits, bacon and eggs) and had mimosas (made with Tosti Asti, the same kind of sparkling wine Taylor “won” when he proposed, and that we drank at our wedding). We spent the day running errands and doing normal stuff that we can’t normally do during business hours since we are at work. It was normal, just like our relationship every other day.
During the weekend we also gave both sets of parents a wedding album I made using Snapfish…finally, one year after the fact (it’s difficult to pick out photos for an album). Everyone loved it as far as I could tell.
We didn’t exactly exchange gifts. All along I had told Taylor that my gifts to him were not expensive but they were thoughtful. We did exchange cards (in mine I rewrote a portion of our wedding vows, in his he wrote a very heartfelt message about being the perfect team). I gave him a mousepad with one of our wedding photos on it. I also made tiramisu, our wedding dessert, and bought the Asti for mimosas. He made a reservation for dinner at Snake River Grill and will probably be buying me a Nike Plus sportband.
Over all it was a great weekend. I know all our anniversaries will be as good or better.
I love you honey. Here’s to many, many more years together.
