Happy 2nd Wedding Anniversary

on September 18, 2012

We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
~ Frederick Koenig

Today marks two years since C and I stood in front of Jasper’s Pyramid Lake and declared our love in front of our family members. I remember how filled with love my heart was that day.

It is so easy to close my eyes and go right back to that day – I can feel the breeze lifting wisps of my hair, I can hear my heart beat, and I can see the pride in my parents’ eyes.

In what has become true N&C fashion, what one of us does, the other balances out and so as we stood facing each other, our hands joined, my vows brought tears (of joy and gratitude) and C’s vows brought laughter (he ended up needing to pull out his iPhone as the marriage commissioner didn’t see the email he had sent).

In the quiet beauty of Jasper, we took another step in our journey together. It is one that has been filled with laughter and tears (mostly of joy and gratitude) and a whole lot of unconditional love.

So here’s to celebrating all of our milestones – the weeks, the months, and the years.

It will never cease to amaze me that the secret to a happy marriage is an attitude of gratitude.

And to conclude this blog entry, here are fitting excerpts from two of our wedding songs:

“You’re the reason I believe in love. And you’re the answer to my prayers from up above. All we need is just the two of us. My dreams cam true because of you.”
(Shania Twain’s From This Moment On)

“And so today, my world it smiles, your hand in mine, we walk the miles.”
(Led Zeppelin’s Thank You)
