The Beach in Spring and Our 2-Year Wedding Anniversary

Hey there! Welcome back!


Look below!

Do you see him?!?!?!

It's Baby Henry being funny! Or... well... I guess it's Mommy and Daddy being funny, lol. We love playing with his long hair. I thought this would be a fun pic to share with you all.

Here are a few more. Recently we spent an afternoon at the beach. It was sunny out but still a bit windy. 

This pic below is one of my favorites. It's Daddy skimming rocks along the water and Baby Henry in back in his little cruiser. My two boys. Words can't express how much they mean to me :)

Here's another candid of Daddy and Baby.

So recently Daddy and Mommy celebrated their wedding anniversary. We've been married for two years. I know we JUST did the church thang in September but we did the legal thang in May of 2013 so legally, we have been married for two years. I made a few things for Daddy this year. First, a cake because I love making cakes. I just realized though that I had made him a blue cake last year for his birthday! Blue is my favorite color and it's Henry's favorite color as well, so... who cares! More blue the better! 

In addition to his blue cake, I made him a little frame. I printed our wedding song lyrics ("Sabes" by Reik) onto heavy cardstock, then I cut it out in the form of a tree. I then pasted it onto another white background, cut out red hearts, and hung them on the tree branch. Then I framed the tree. after that I cut out two of the same hearts again and wrote our names on them. Then, using 3D dots I put them on the outside of the frame so they would stand out.

I also put lipstick on and kissed some cardstock and wrote him a little note. Then I laminated it and told him to keep my kiss in his wallet. Then, I cut and laminated another piece of cardstock and put our wedding stats on there, i.e. how many years, months, weeks, days, hours, etc. we've been together. This was another card for his wallet.

Anniversaries aren't really big in Ecuador and my parents never really celebrated their anniversaries either. But I've always had a love for celebrating special moments and this is definitely one of them. I love remembering the first time we met, and the first time we went out, and our wedding, our son's birth... everything. It is all special to me and I am happy things happened the way they did. It wasn't easy when I moved to Ecuador, but Henry was a silver lining. I never expected any of this to happen. We met and became friends. I was positive that was it. Then one day... love happened :)
