Before I start up on our anniversary recap, I want to send out a little message to the husband:
4 years ago, I made the easiest decision I have ever made, I agreed to marry you. On our wedding day, I was not nervous and there was no doubt in my mind that I was making the perfect choice. From early on in our relationship, even before we were engaged, I knew that you were someone that I wanted to have around me- all the time. The only thing that comes to mind when I look back on the last 4 years is, Wow… you must love me just as much as I love you. I am one of the most annoying people I know and it must be interesting having me as a spouse. Thank you for giving all that you do to make our union so successful. I pray that God blesses us with many, many more years!
We opened out gifts for each other the night before our anniv. Why? Because I am impatient and I love to ruin surprises. On our anniversaries, we exchange gifts based on the traditional and modern gift lists:
Traditional Gifts: Fruit or Flowers Modern Gifts: Appliances
Stephen claims that some of the lists also state that linen is an acceptable traditional gift.
Look at how nice Stephen wraps my gifts. He has always done that.
His appliance? KitchenAid mixer!!! This is his dream come true. This was the only thing stopping him from being a master baker.
My appliance is a beautiful, pink flat iron! Yay! My hair is already straight but, this should help with the sleek look that can not be accomplished by simply sticking my head out of the car window in the morning.
One of our favorite special day restaurants.
For Stephen. He deserved it after the long, stressful drive. A 40 minute trip took 1.5 hours, thanks to a traffic collision. We were 1 hour late to our reservation!
The view from the restaurant.
We wrapped up the night with a nice surprise: Tickets to see 9 to 5: The Musical! It was FANTASTIC!
It was a perfect day. 🙂
