More in love than ever!!

"If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don't expose it to the elements. You don't make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because ou have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by..."

I found this quote given by an apostle of the church and he was comparing marriage to china silverware. I thought it couldn't be more perfect for how I feel about my love. Keven and I had our 2nd wedding anniversary on December 30th. (I know, I'm sorry I am behind on posting!) So the past months, I have been working on a project. I can't believe I kept it a secret. Well, I made a scrapbook of our last year together. I did it digitally and I was so pleased with the outcome! I ended up getting 82 pages done!! I was so excited when I got it and on our anniversary I surprised him at lunch!After work, we went to our favorite beach, Laguna Beach. It's where we got our engagement pictures and we always hung out there when we dated. We found this restaurant on the beach called "The Beach House" and it was so awesome! It overlooked the beach and we got there just in time to enjoy our dinner on the deck overlooking the sunset. It couldn't have been a better day for just the two of us!

After we ate, we went walking around Laguna to look at the art galleries. We love looking at art, so it was really fun! We then went to South Coast plaza, which is right by our place. Keven surprised me at dinner and told me he was taking me to Tiffany's! I've never had anything like that, so when we went there, I was blown away! I felt like a princess! He really surprised me! We got it engraved so I haven't received it yet. It had to be shipped to New York because that's where they hand engrave the jewelry so I will have to post it when I receive it. It's going to have our wedding date in roman numerals (XII XXX) I am SO excited for it!
After we left Tiffany's, we were suppose to go to the movies, but the movies that we wanted to see already were playing. We decided to come home and just watch a movie at home. It was such an amazing night and I couldn't have been blessed with more! Let's take a look down memory lane of two years ago....the day my life began..




These past two years have definitely flown by! I look at all that we have been blessed with and I just can't imagine doing this all without Keven. He is so amazing and everyday I look at what he has done for me. He is so special and teaches me so much. He has so many qualities that I admire and I am so excited to go through this journey with him. I am so excited to have him by my side for all eternity! I love you so much Kev!
