Yesterday marked two years since we were married. We weren't sure what we should do for the occasion. Yes, we were apart for five months...and yeah, life wasn't all that easy before then, but that's still the date we made a commitment to each other. It's still the date that we will remember for the rest of our lives. The time apart has helped us both see a lot about ourselves and what we want in life. Certainly not the easiest route, but it happened, it's over, and we're building from today. So why not celebrate?!?
We debated all of these plans, selecting restaurants, making different reservations, etc. We wanted to make the night special.
But..when last night came and we just decided to do what we felt like doing. Which was fantastic. The year before we were so concerned about having the "perfect" first anniversary that we ended up not having the best time ever.
So what we felt like doing, in the dead of winter, was try to get warm (on my ridiculously comfortable couch), then head to Famoso for a pizza and salad (it was freezing outside so we had the restaurant to ourselves, it couldn't have worked out better), and then stopped at Safeway for two cupcakes (I'm into this cupcake phase right now. I talk about them a lot).
It's been (and will be) a pretty wild rollercoaster ride. It hasn't been all perfect. There are moments (or days) where I'm still pretty shaky. All of this...the last six months...the last twelve months...the last however long...it's been like a blur. It's overwhelming to try to take it all in. Or adjust to all of the changes.
It's also incredibly overwhelming, in the most positive of ways, to have my best friend back in my life. We were apart for too long. <3
