(& one day) I will be celebrating 4 years married to the most amazing man in the world! I love you baby and cannot wait to spend many many more years together! ❤
In years past, we have always had our anniversary plans figured out by now – but this year with the move and travels we have done so far this summer we don’t have it figured out yet – but we will soon! We are debating between the coast, the mountains, Seattle, lake fun and a cabin, or a resort like Kah-nee-ta. After going to Vegas twice in the past 2 months and SoCal as well, we are keeping this trip close to home. Plus, I am loving the thought of a long relaxing weekend with the hubby at the gorgeous Oregon Coast or relaxing in nature in the mountains or by a lake – just what we need to end this *cough* summer.
Each of our anniversary trips have been so different, yet AMAZING – and I have so many memories from all of them. Our first year we were young and had no money so we went to Portland and stayed at our favorite McMenamins, Edgefield for three nights. We got spa treatments, drank on our patio and explored PDX – that was Shaun’s 1st time to Multnomah Falls. For our second anniversary, we still were young broke kids so we spent two nights at 3Rivers and also had a great trip. Last year we managed to pull off two Vegas trips as well, and one was for our anniversary, which of course was a blast – we had a strip view suite at TI and the hubby treated me to an amazing dinner/night at Voodoo, just one of the highlights.
Not only do I love being married to my best friend, but I love having this special time together. Some people just look at anniversaries as another day, which is fine because frankly, that is my feelings towards Valentine’s Day, but for some reason we both feel that our wedding anniversary is meant to be spent doing something special. Whether we are completely broke or have tons of money, we know that the few days surrounding our anniversary will be special, this is not to say we don’t do other special things throughout the year just because. Needless to say, I am writing this post because it has been on my mind a lot lately, and I am so excited to be celebrating the best four years+ with my love.
