Happy 2nd Anniversary: To my husband...

My loving husband, 
    I cherish you more than you know. Our 2nd year of marriage has been full of adventure and love. I am so lucky to be experiencing what life has to offer with you. Thank you for all you do and for simply being you. I love you with all of my heart! Happy 2nd Anniversary! - J
Last year Jeremy and I sat down and answered questions about one another for our 1st anniversary. This year, I found that the same blogger had written new questions to ask on every anniversary. Some of them were similar to last year's, so I came up with a couple of different questions. Here goes!!!... :)

1. What has brought you closer together this year?
Me-  Talking about our future!
Jeremy- International travel and gaining perspective through the culture of others less fortunate.

2. What is your favorite memory of this year together?
Me- Brazil! That was an amazing trip and I am so glad we were able to go and create life long memories with dear friends. 
Jeremy- Being in beautiful Brazil for two short weeks.

3. If you could relive any day from this past year what would it be?
Me- This is a hard one! There are so many I would happily do over again. I guess I will go back to Brazil. Most everyday there was so amazing. 
Jeremy- Most any of the days when all the work is done, and we can relax in our home.

4. What's been the best thing about our marriage in the past year?
Me- The time we had together while on our trips. It was amazing to see all of the Portland/ California coast with you and then explore the beauty of Brazil. We have been so fortunate to travel and see such beautiful places and that time together was amazing! 
Jeremy- We're getting stronger all the time!

5. Anything shocking you've learned about your spouse?
Me-  I would say I am most shocked that you got into Mad Men. You aren't one for TV and I'm selfishly glad you like that show. I've enjoyed watching the seasons with you. I'm also shocked you let me get Maya. I appreciate you understanding my need for another dog. It was so hard to lose Kiya and all that love needed to go somewhere! She's been a great addition to our family.  
Jeremy- Your Brazilian street smarts!

6. What is a bonus quality you received in your spouse that you didn't know about until this year?
Me- That you can sing! I sing constantly (even though it's mostly off key) and you have never been one to sing in front of me. I have enjoyed the few times that you opened up and sang with me this year. You are very good which isn't surprising. 
Jeremy- I am always surprised in your ability to tolerate the real me all day everyday.

7. What has been the scariest thing to happen in the past year?
Me- Of course the incident in Brazil. Although, we swore we would never share all of the details, it was unbelievably life changing and when I replay those horrific 15 minutes in my head I thank God for watching over us. I am so very lucky to have a man who cared for me the way you did. You were so comforting and got me through the tears..well the hours of waterworks I should say. :) 
Jeremy- Having to see your street smarts put to use.

8. What have you learned from your spouse in the past 12 months?
Me- You taught me how to make a mean margarita and how to cook a steak perfectly on the stove top. 
Jeremy- I am constantly learning from your caring nature.

9. How have your feelings changed in this year together?
Me- My feelings for you have deepened not only in love, but in respect. I respect how hard you work and how hard you strive to keep things balanced in life.
Jeremy- Nothing has changed this year any more than others, but we're learning a deeper love.

10. What do you most look forward to in our next year of marriage?
Me- Starting a family. You are going to make one awesome dad! ;)
Jeremy- Moving forward to bigger things! Babies, house...

We are off to celebrate! First stop, Patterson House then dinner at our favorite spot, Rumours East.
