Our Second

It’s been a couple weeks. We have been adjusting. A few things have changed in our home of late. First off, on the 26th of August, we celebrated our 2nd anniversary. It was weird, and awesome. When I was in the MTC, a speaker told us the week we left for Albania, that one day we would wake up, and we will have been in the country for 3 months, and we wouldn’t believe it, it will have gone so fast. The day he described, came, and he was right; I couldn’t believe it. The morning of the 26th was just like that. I looked at Karl sleeping next to me, and I couldn’t believe it. Not that two years is really even a bench mark of the time we will spend together, but I think that I can say that we are officially not newly weds anymore. (Or at least we can’t play the newly wed game show anymore.) My mom always asks, “So, how are things, are you two still in love?” I always answer yes, of course mom. Which is the truth. Our relationship dynamic is still the same, and we are still best friends. People tell us just give it time, you will want to take a break from eachother. No, not really. I would always rather be with Karl. He feels the same way. Sure we have great friends that we Not to get too cheesy, I hope that never changes. I know that we don’t have kids yet, and that will probably really change the dynamic of our friendship, but I hope not .Not to get too cheesy, I hope that never changes. I know that we don’t have kids yet, and that will probably really change the dynamic of our friendship, but I hope not.
Anywho, we went to Carino’s for dinner. For those of you who don’t know, while Karl and I were dating in California he worked as a server at Johnny Carino’s. At the time we ate there often, and every time we ever go to any other Italian place, we will inevitably say, “it was good, but Its not Carino’s. I would just rather have a Penne Gorgonzola.” We had a great time.

Here is Karl with his Penne! He loved it!
This is my baked tortenlloni. YUM!

On our way over we went to IKEA and bought a few little accents for the house. I have decided to add a bit of blue to the brown and orange. It looks good:

After dinner and IKEA we headed off to Costco…and bought something that I am not advertising on this blog. For more detail…call me.

We spent the rest of the evening together, talking about the old days…

Here on a hike near Occotillo, CA, on one of our disasterace hikes while dating in the Valley.
Bridge jumping…and yes, Karl almost lept to his doom.
Caving at the Darby Wind Caves near Driggs Idaho for Karls 22nd b-day.

The night Karl called my dad to ask him to marry me. Karl was really nervous, you can see it in his face. I was there to give him support.
And of course the best day of all…
Two years and going strong baby!!!
Let the Adventures continue.
