We're On a Boat

July 8, 2013

Nate and I have been married two whole years!  (Plus six days)  Obviously that needed to be celebrated!  Since I planned out our white water rafting anniversary celebration last year, Nate had the responsibility to make plans for us this year.  I can sometimes be a control freak so it was great to get to sit back and worry that he’ll forget he needs to plan something not concern myself with the details of our anniversary celebration. Of course, if you’ve been around here long enough you know that I LOVE planning events.  I couldn’t let our anniversary come and go without contributing to the planning a little bit.  I decided it would be my job to plan out dinner on Friday night to kick off anniversary weekend! What’s better than a theme dinner?  I made enchilada, rice and beans, and margaritas and we had our own little Mexican restaurant in our home.  It was an anniversary fiesta at its finest. Mexican Dinner The next day was our real anniversary celebration day.  Nate had planned it out so well.  He had booked us a little day cruise up the Columbia River.  We got to sit on the deck of the ship for a few hours, soaking in the sun and marveling at the gorgeous scenery.  It was such a wonderful time being with my love with no distractions like schoolwork, housework, or anything else. Going west, it was SO WINDY!  I was wearing a cute little cotton skirt that weighed basically nothing and it kept billowing up – to the point where I was thinking of sewing rocks into the hem…  if I had just had a sewing kit with me.  It definitely caused a lot of laughs!  Thankfully, as soon as we turned around and headed east, the wind was gone and we got to enjoy everything wind-free. River Boat After the mini-cruise, Nate and I drove a little further east and stopped in Hood River to walk around and have dinner.  It was fun to explore the quaint little town and find a new place to eat.  We decided on the Big Horse Brew Pub.  It was such an interesting restaurant with tons of eclectic food – definitely the sort of place Nate and I enjoy. The last thing on Nate’s schedule for the day was driving home a back way – behind Mt. Hood.  It was an amazingly beautiful drive and we had fabulous views of the mountain.  It made me so thankful that I live in the Pacific Northwest.  We are so blessed with such gorgeous nature.  God’s handiwork at its finest! Anniversary Dinner The whole day was such a wonderful blessing to me.  Nate had planned the day out so well, allowing us to enjoy things together without the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  We were given so much time to just talk – about our future, things that are going on in life right now, our frustrations, and our relationships with the Lord.  With how busy we are, sometimes I forget how amazing it is to have so much time to connect with Nate.  I also simply love experiencing new things and marveling in God’s glorious creation with the love of my life!  I’m so thankful I get to spend the rest of my life with such an amazing man!
