Total Basset Case: Our Love : 4 Year Anniversary

Our Love : 4 Year Anniversary

Today marks our 4 year wedding anniversary and I literally can't believe it.
I still remember our wedding day so vividly and it makes me so so happy.
There are times when I want to live that day over and over again (and wear my dress - which I will 100% be doing tonight).
But at the same time I love that we have 4 years or marriage under our belt.
4 years of growing (well 14 if we are counting from the beginning), 4 years of understanding our marriage and each other, 4 years of owning and running a home, 4 years of making dinner and going on date nights together, 4 years of going through the good and bad and ups and downs, 4 years of love that continues to grow each and every day.  And I can't wait to see what the next 444 years hold. 

Andddd that's enough mushy ;)

Because I am craving a vacation and sunshine like whoa I thought it would be fun to recap our honeymoon.
Our honeymoon was a 100% complete surprise to me.  Mister planned and orchestrated the entire thing.  I had no idea where we were going until we got to the airport and even then I didn't really know what to expect.  I always suggest to my friends getting married to go this route.  As much as I love to plan and be in the know, not having to worry about a single thing to do the with honeymoon made the wedding planning process so much easier.  Mister told me to pack for warm weather and the beach and that's what I did and it worked out perfectly.

We went Secrets Capri in Riveria Maya and absolutely loved it.  It was one of the prettiest and nicest places we've ever stayed.  I mean they welcome you at the door with champagne, it can only get better from there. 
I fully believe that all inclusive is the way to go for a honeymoon.  The less you have to worry about the better! Plus they just keep the drinks comin'!
And...room service.  Possibly the best part ever.

We met 4 other couples while we were there who were also on their honeymoons and became great friends with them for the week and still talk to them to this day.  
It really was just the best time and I would go back in a heart beat.
Can we, Mister?!

Mister and I are big fans of traditional anniversary gifts so I'll have a gift guide up next week for 4th year anniversary (fruit and flowers).  I couldn't have it up this week or it would have spoiled Mister's gift ;)

My honeymoon was a surprise too! Marc wasn't going to tell me that we were going on a Hawaiian cruise until we arrived at the airport but the limo driver spilled the beans!

Happy 4th anniversary and here's to many, many more!

Happy Anniversary! 4 years is quite an accomplishment. I totally agree with the husband taking the reins when it comes to the honeymoon. It makes it so much easier on the bride, after planning the majority of the wedding!

Happy Anniversary to you! Your honeymoon looks awesome, I think a surprise one sounds like so much fun, he did GOOD;)

Anne said...

Awww, happy anniversary!! I think every year gets better - and I love how you put it about 4 years of understanding, making dinner together, etc... Also: wedding is great, honeymoon even better. I say year 5 anniversary is a repeat of the tropical honeymoon vacation. That's what I convinced Peter of a few years ago anyway :)

Jayme and Mendi said...

Happy Anniversary!!! We totally think you too should go back to where you honeymooned!! :-) Wes and I did that last year for our 4 Anniversary and it was even better than I remembered! :-)

Happy anniversary! We did al-inclusive for our honeymoon too (in the riviera maya too, no less!) and I recommend that to every couple planning a honeymoon if they can swing it. It did spoil us for all future vacations though haha

Denise Wertenberger said...

Not to belatedly stalk your honeymoon, but we are tentatively planning a trip to Mexico, and this resort is at the top of our list! Think you could answer a couple questions for me, via email? :)
