Two Years of Wedded Bliss

Aaron and I celebrated mid- August our 2nd anniversary in Galveston. Shown above is the noted paradise. And my heart aches to go back right this second. We jetted off to our paradise island to get some much needed rest and relaxation. We had the absolute time of our lives. Since watching a Grey's Anatomy episode featuring Meredith and 'McDreamy' on a romantic fairy boat outside of Seattle nearly five years ago, I knew I had to do it one day with my own 'McSteamy'. And I totally did!
We parked 'Boo'(our Cheve Malibu) on the first floor and quickly went on the second deck to catch the breeze and see beautiful scenes. The white sand and deep blue water contrasted perfectly with the clear skiess and hot weather was a much needed slice of heaven. I felt as though we were at Sea World as the dolphins tried to keep up with our fairy ride. The seagulls were swarming all of the tourists in hopes of finding some amused child wanting to watch birds go crazy for tossed french fries. Serious amusement.
Finally getting to the island was a breathe of fresh air. Just the two of us. Reminiscing the new feelings of becoming husband and wife. Watching my boyfriend-turned-fiance-turned-husband wearing a sexy tungsten band around his ring finger and suddenly feeling more qualified as a person and growing man.
Aaron and I had an absolute blast riding on this darling, little cart that made us squeal. Every twist and turn made us laugh and giggle as we found our selves zipping down a hill or on uneven and crumbled roads.
Oh boy, do I cherish these moments.
I love the afternoons we left the beaches soaking wet while covered in sea salt and sand to hurry back to our hotel room to get ready together for a fun night out on the town. Getting dressed up together. Another fun and new, exciting thing to do as husband and wife. 
Sometimes I feel like we are the only two people in the world.
We dined at a southern-style restaurant called Suga's. Complete with a Louisiana jazz band. I have a confession. I love fancy dinners. There is something to say about fancy dinnerware, impeccable service, a cute outfit and the best company around that makes my heart skip a beat or two.
We then strolled over to a theater to watch Brian Regan in action! He's my favorite comedian. Ever.
After the show, we headed back to our hotel and my Sweetheart had sneakily adorned our room with everything romantic. Chocolate and Blue Bell. You make my taste buds dance.

They say the best kind of love awakens the soul and makes us reach for something better than who we are. This brings peace to my soul. And that's what I hope to bring to you forever. Within the first few weeks of officially calling myself your girlfriend, I knew that you were the man I would someday marry. I fell in love not only with your smile, patience, gentleness and sincerity but your genuine heart and giving soul. Somehow you've made me feel like the luckiest girl alive.
As your wife, I promise to be completely in love with you like how I do now.  I promise that when we're eighty years old that we'll have as much fun now even if we like to go to bed at 9 o'clock at night. I promise to never forget the importance of back rubs, love notes, extra long glances, winks,  or a batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookies. With every ''yes'' we share, I promise to respect and care for you not only as my husband but as my best friend and partner for the eternities. 
Thank you for saying "Yes."

Yours truly, Me
