Happy 2 Year Anniversary

Well, two years ago yesterday I walked down the aisle and married my best friend. That was such a magical day!!! I remember it like it was yesterday. I will never forgot the details of that day. It started off with me packing for our honeymoon because I had waited to the very last minute. Then going to get my hair done with Jessica and Annesley. Then going to Back Yard Burger for a little lunch hahah. Then it was time for pictures. Drew and I chose to see eachother before the wedding and that was so special for us. I still remember his face when we first saw eachother. It was a BEAUTIFUL day... close to 70 degrees outside! It was such a relief because it has been raining all week and it was cold! Then it was time to walk down the aisle. Of course, my nerves had kicked in full swing by this time!! However, I remember feeling so calm when we were saying our vows. It was as if we were the only people in the room. What a wonderful day it was. Our two year anniversay was not spent quite the way we had imagined... in a hospital room at ACH. However, it was a nice anniversay. We spent quality time with each other and our precious Anniston Kate. Anniston was feeling better, which made our day! Drew and I did get to go to dinner last night because his mom came and sat with her.

I just wanted to share a little bit about Drew and me. First of all, we are pretty opposite. It's really funny actually. He is very detail oriented, just not about the things that I am detail oriented about. If I ask him a question about something for example "Why does the lake turn?" I don't get a simple answer. It is almost always drawn out with specific scientific info. I usually am looking for a very simple answer. However, this explanation can go on for up to 20 minutes. I actually asked him this question one day and I was getting all of this info... I looked at him in mid-sentence and said "I think its because all of the fish get together and swim to one side of the lake and it causes the lake to turn". His facial expression was priceless. He says that he is horrified that I am going to tell our children those kinds of things! Of course, I didn't really think that but, by this time, I was on to a completely different thought. You will hardly ever hear us call each other by our full name. Drew ALWAYS calls me Ash... NEVER Ashley. In fact, if he called me Ashley it would literally stop me in my tracks because it would just be weird. Sometimes if he is talking to people he will say Ashley in conversation with them but that is literally the only time I ever hear my full name come out of his mouth! I call him Roo. This started way back when, when we were dating. I really don't know why. He wasn't real excited about it at first, but then one day I said "Hey Drew " and he said "Why did you call me Drew?" At that point it was evident that we would never call each other by our full names. It may be weird, but its us and I love it! Roo says that I, "Add color to his life." He says that I have a talent for thinking of things that he would NEVER think of in a million years. These thoughts just come natural to me hahaha. Drew does the laundry... yes I said it! He has a certian way that his shirts must be folded... annoying yes, but our t-shirts are NEVER wrinkled. I will admit that I can fold his way, but most of the time choose not to. It is basically because I hate folding to begin with and then having to take 3,893 minutes to fold one shirt gets on my last nerve! Therefore, I usually put the clothes in the washer and then in the dryer and he folds them. I am one lucky girl, I know!!! Overall, we have decided that our differences compliment each other. Yes, we have our occasional "disagreement," but who doesn't??? I love my husband very much and I know that he is God's gift to me! Happy 2 year Anniversary!
