You know things are good when.....

In lieu of Valentine's Day coming up...I have a nice, cheesy, post for you today!

Well, today marks 6 months (1/2 year) of being married.

Some of you (probably most of you) may read this and laugh hysterically that one would get excited about this. But where is there a rule book saying:
"You are only allowed to celebrate your marriage on an annual basis."

Unless I am lacking on resources, I don't think there is a rule out there like that.

And upon celebrating 1/2 year of a great start to a marriage I was surprised today!

Now, sometimes there are moments where you just know that a certain person is right for you. And they do things that no one else in the world would do for you. In fact, no one else in the world would be thrilled by it -- but I am.

And this is how I know that Ryan is right:

We are celebrating this evening since we didn't have a weekend. He had guard drill and late nights at the library, and I had volunteering and school responsibilites. Our menu is Grilled Stuffed Bell Peppers, bruschetta, and of couse a salad. As I was getting the meat slow cooking for the peppers; Ryan had to run to the store....

And he returned with a package containing the following:

-12 Red Roses
-Balsalmic vinegar (even in a fancy jar)
-And a bouquet of Limes and lemons (not really a bouquet...but a plentiful amount.
-Carmex in the tube--not the stick or jar (very nostalgic of my childhood)

Some of you may read this, and think "That's kind of odd." But if you only knew my true love for citrus (the limes and lemons) and the balsalmic vinegar. Or if one could understand how I just grin ear-to-ear and am brought back to age 7 when I put on carmex from a tube.........

It's the simple things in life that bring us some very happy moments!

It's so important to celebrate the simple moments in life. You have quite the wonderful husband! Sounds like a wonderful night!!

I had to laugh about the carmex. Totally makes me think of mom. She always had jars of it in her car, on the bread box in the kitchen, etc. I have no become obsessed with Burts Bees Wax! If you haven't tried it, you must!

Happy 1/2 year!

Happy 6 month Anniversary, Abby & Ryan!! I think your anniversary gift and celebration sounds absolutely wonderful. I LOVE it that Chris *knows* the special little things that make me happy and I so get the "special bottle" of balsamic vinegar!

Here's hoping the next 50 "Half Year" anniversaries are as sweet and happy as this one!
