2 years already!?

last month (yes, i am still playing catch up) cade and i celebrated our second anniversary. time is FLYING by! i still remember the day i met cade like it was just last week. i was walking up the big hill in logan on my way to church on the first sunday after i moved back up to logan. as my roommate and i passed cade's apartment, he was walking out on his way up the hill too. now- i won't use the phrase 'love at first sight' - but i will say that there was something very intriguing about cade and it caught my attention. we chatted to church, through church and all the way home. on our way home, cade was commenting on how good of a day it had been and insisted we take a picture. this is us about 3 hours after we met...
three years later, i love looking at this picture. we have no idea that this little meeting on our way to church would lead to all of this....

it has been quite the adventure.

since cade and i switch off who will plan our anniversary each year, this year fell on him. after we both gave one another books last year, we decided to continue following traditional anniversary gift protocol. as this is our second year, it requires a gift of cotton. cade planned a trip to park city to pick up a few cotton clothing items for one another before heading to dinner and then off to the jazz playoff game. it was a blast.
looking at all the great times these first few years have been, i am excited about what is ahead. it is tough to imagine anything better than this....

What a great post! I loved hearing about how you met! Greg and I had that "instant connection" too. I can't believe you've only been married 2 years and already have a kid! CRAZY!!! Greg and I are comin' up on our 5 yr, pretty soon. You are right, it just keeps on gettin' better. What a cute pic of Vi at the end.
