2 Years!

Yesterday, Ben and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary.  It seems like just yesterday we were shivering outside the Salt Lake Temple, wondering what had happened to the beautiful spring weather we had been enjoying the week before... but not not really caring since we had just been sealed for time and all eternity.

Mondays are hard days for us.  Ben goes to school early and I head off to work.  Regardless of what time he gets home, he spends the rest of the night studying for finals, and I go straight to class from work.  (I'm taking an Interior Architectural Drafting class on Monday nights this semester.)  After 3 hours of class, I get home a little after 10 and fall straight into bed.  when I saw that our anniversary fell on a Monday this year I was a little bummed.  I knew that by the time I got home I would be too exhausted to do much more than say hello.

Well, Ben - being the wonderful, amazing husband that he is woke me up with breakfast in bed!  When I finally got home, I was surprised with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a card, and a clean room.  As if that wasn't enough, at the last second, before I fell asleep, he pulled a little jewelry box out of nowhere.  I was completely shocked!  It was a beautiful necklace that Ben picked out all on his own!  What a guy!  I really have the best husband ever!

You know, it's really amazing to see how far we've come in these past two years.  I would have struggled to believe that I could ever be more in love with my darling husband that on that cold April day, 2 years ago.  But as we've grown as a couple, I know now that I love him so much more now than I could have ever imagined.  It makes me excited for the rest of well, forever!
