2 Wonderful Years!!!

Today is our 2nd anniversary. That's right, we've been married now for two whole years. I can't believe the time has passed so quickly, but at the same time it seems like Jared and I have been together forever and our wedding was just a big party we threw a few years back. Jared got me a set of scriptures with my married name on them and a pretty blue dress with brown flowers and leaves on it. I got Jared a new set of temple pants (and, he says, the suit that I got for his birthday is still counting for gifts). I know, we're sooo romantic, but hey, that's what we wanted! Also, Jared got me a lovely card, which is something I didn't expect. (Jared thinks cards are pointless and talking or a phone call works just as well, but he knows that I love them). We went to dinner at Red Lobster using our "free" gift card that we got through our credit card points. Then we wandered around and did a little bit of shopping and rounded out the night with ice cream at Macey's. We were both too full from Red Lobster to consider anything more than a twist cone a piece. Here are some things I have learned over the past two years:

-Nothing is really as grim as it seems
-Sometimes belching contests are really funny
-Sleeping with a teddy bear save Jared from a lot of bruises (apparantly I'm a violent sleeper)
-Happiness is something that you create together and share with each other
-Marriage truly is ordained of God; I can think of no happier thing than coming home each day to my best friend
-Jared is my best friend
-Always be willing to talk about things, even if they're just random stupid questions
-Share the simple things that make you happy
-Share things that make you sad so that you can help each other through them
-Don't open your mouth in the temple if you can't come up with an appropriate answer (for a more detailed answer, let me know and I'll give you the story of our sealing)
-Things don't always go the way you want them to, but that's what having your best friend is for
-Football is actually a fun sport, if you understand what's going on
-God invented irony
