2 Years and Counting

On Tuesday, July 14th, Opie and I celebrated the 2nd anniversary of our first date. This is our last dating anniversary before we tie the knot on October 10th. We enjoyed a fairly quiet evening after Opie put in his hours for the work day. We went to our favorite Chinese restaurant, Kirin Court, and then went home to enjoy some homemade pie and a bottle of port.

Pie and port have become an anniversary tradition, despite the fact that we've had all of 2 anniversaries. 2 occasions is enough to form a tradition, right? Last year, I'm pretty sure we killed the bottle between us that evening. This year we only had a modest glass each and called that good. Opie had pulled an all-nighter the night before, and my tummy just can't handle alcohol very well right now due to various gastrointestinal disorders, so it was definitely nice to sip a glass of port, but we weren't exactly in drinking shape, as it were.

We made a lemon meringue pie sans meringue the night before. An electric beater is one of the many things we (still) need to register for and my last attempt at hand-whipping meringue was such a miserable failure, we figured it'd be best to just skip that part of the recipe. Mmmm.. our lemon pie was delicious. Didn't even miss the meringue. Okay, maybe I missed it an eensy teensy bit, but it was still diviiine.

In a few weeks, we'll be going to Cape Breton as previously mentioned, in part also in celebration of our anniversary. I will be getting my software engineer honey away from internet access, television reception, and cell phone service for a good two weeks. [sighs] Sounds lovely, yes? At least until he goes bonkers due to reverse culture shock. Bwahaha. I mean.. I'm sure it's exactly the relaxing vacation we both need! Yeah! That!

Happy Anniversary, m'love. It's been an absolutely incredible two years. I can hardly recall how my life was before you, only that it was so terribly empty by comparison to life with you. Here's to many many many more years together. I look forward to growing up and growing old together.

Congrats on your anniversary! This past Sunday was actually 3 years for us - it's hard to believe it's been that long! I have to admit, it was a little strange knowing that this was our last "dating" anniversary (cheesy I know) and the next time we celebrate it will be as a married couple! Such a strange thought...
