Happy 2nd Anniversary to the Man of My Dreams

First, the winner of my SkincareRX giveaway picked by random.org was Katrin, congrats girl!
 I'll contact you.
Sorry everyone, no Bachelorette re-cap today, why because I gave out my final rose already to my husband of 2 years ago today.
Well, Sean, today is our 2nd anniversary!
Two years already since we said our I dos, two years since I was standing there in a white (ok actually it was ivory) dress and you in your suit looking all dapper, two years since the pronouncement of Mr. and Mrs. Henning.

Two years of an adventure and what an adventure it has been, let's call it Sean and Meg's Excellent Adventure and using the analogy of an amusement park I'll continue describing our 2 years of marriage together. We handed over our not single anymore tickets when we checked into the marriage park on July 17, 2010. Our first stop was the honeymoon and like a carousel where you get on and are transformed into a new reality full of unicorns and happy music. Then shortly after our honeymoon we rode the Haunted Mansion when reality hit and we realized how fragile life is and how short it really can be. The next stop on our marriage-themed amusement park was the roller coaster with the ups and downs just like any other marriage. We had some highs and then we had some lows but it is because we were learning more about each other and learning how to be married to one other. 
After getting off the roller coaster, we headed over to the ferris wheel, where the ride smooths out a bit, we are moving at a consistent and even speed and we get to slow down a bit. After the ferris wheel, we continued the sweetness with some cotton candy and caramel dipped apples and this is where we found ourselves 2 years later, more settled in, a gentle, even ride known as Mr. and Mrs. Henning. Where will this excellent adventure of ours take us? Only God knows and we leave it all up to Him to decide but I know that sometimes we might take a ride on that roller coaster at times. Then I know we can jump right back on that ferris wheel where things are steady and consistent and for sure we will be sharing some of that cotton candy and caramel apples sprinkled throughout all of this adventure of ours.

I love you and I am so happy that God brought us together. You make me laugh harder than anyone, you have been a great provider, you are a great encourager and I wouldn't want to be on this adventure with anyone else but you.
