Happy Two Year Anniversary!

I can’t believe it was only two years ago that Ryan and I said “I Do.” It feels much longer than that but in the best way. This also marks the anniversary of when we started dating as well…

Ryan and I had known each other in college but had never officially dated at school. However, there was always a strong connection between the two of us, something we both felt but just wasn’t right for that point in our lives.

The weekend it all started — dressed as a mime and Gilligan at a Halloween party. Awesome costumes, past selves.

A few months after I graduated in May 2007, Ryan randomly IMed me one night (thanks, Internet!), and we spent a few hours chatting. The following night, he sent me a text message, and I knew at that point that this was the start of something big.

In October of that year, I made a weekend trip to Chicago from Greencastle, where I was living and working at the time, and well, most of you know how the rest goes…

One year later. At this point, I had officially “followed a boy to Chicago” and was settled in an apartment a few blocks away.
In October 2009, we had just recently arrived in Buenos Aires, where we spent about six weeks exploring the city before scoping out the rest of the continent. This is the Floralis Generica in the neighborhood of Recoleta — it opens and closes throughout the day.
On October 30, 2010, we celebrated our wedding day with friends and family. My favorite part of the day? Our ceremony — it felt like we were the only two people in that room.
Last year, we made a quick trip to Denver and Winter Park for our anniversary — it was by far one of the most relaxing trips we’ve taken (if you’re ever in the area, we HIGHLY recommend Devil’s Thumb Ranch). Oh…and this photo was taken on the side of the road, in the mountains, in 40 mph winds. Great idea.

Obviously, celebrating our anniversary this year is a little different. There are no costume parties lined up or trips to take. Instead, we’re waiting on our little one and enjoying a nice dinner at “our place,” NoMI. As you can see, October 30 has always been a significant day for our relationship — maybe it will bring a baby too?
