Best Anniversary EVER!

I married a good one!! I mean a really, REALLY good one! Bryce is the sweetest thing! He is thoughtful and kind in everything he does. This past week we celebrated our second anniversary. It was just magical! And, we did not just celebrate the day of, but the week of! That's right, it was Anniversary week at our house! See what I mean?! Totally a romantic! Here is how it went down:
Bryce brought me this at work Monday. Total surprise!
I  LOVE this! I had one that broke so Bryce replaced it! YAY!
Cute sign and yummy chocolates!
Pretty necklace.
I was out of town Thursday and Friday for work. Bryce was at my office when we pulled in Friday afternoon to pick me up. He said we needed to get checked in to the Bed and Breakfast we were staying at. We debated on whether or not we should stay somewhere. It is hard for me to justify spending hundreds of dollars on a room when we have a perfectly good room in the house we pay for each month. But, Bryce was making the plans here. On the drive Bryce gave me clues as to where we were actually going by the conversation we were having. I asked if the place was pricey. He said it was a really good deal. He said we had the whole house to ourselves so that was going to be nice. He also said it was close by and I probably knew where it was. He said the management did not really care if we checked in early. We could pretty much do whatever we wanted at this place. By now I kind of had a suspicion that I knew right where we were going. As we got closer to our house, Bryce told me to get in his back pack and find the brochure for the place.
Homemade with love!
So sweet right?! We rounded the corner onto Teal Loop and came up to our house, AKA "The Romantic Inn Bed and Breakfast." Bryce had done up the house SO cute. He covered every little detail!
He was SO thoughtful all weekend!

I really could not believe how clever Bryce was. The kindness and surprises just kept coming! I am so thankful to be married to such a kind guy! The rest of the anniversary week gifts went like this:
Beautiful pink daisies.
I had no idea this was coming! Yeah!
Heated blanket! Best idea ever!
We had a wonderful anniversary week! I am so lucky to have such an amazing husband! I love you Bryce!

Season of Thanks

I feel like I have been a bit of a complainer lately. Mostly about work. There have been a lot of changes in my office and it has been pretty rough for me. It seems I have something new to whine to Bryce about regularly. I have never used this blog as a venting place for the goings on in my life... Today I was going to make that no longer true. I was trying to decide how I was going to properly express how fed-up I am with work and all that goes with it. Then, it occurred to me, that many people around me are spending their time expressing how grateful they are for the little things around them. That is a much better way to go about things! I sure have a lot to be grateful for! Things are going so well for me and Bryce! We have a beautiful home, we have friends and family all around, we are both able to be going to school, we have reliable cars, the list seems to go on and on. I decided I better give a shout out to the season and make a list of all the many things I am thankful for. I'm sure there are things I left out, but you get the idea. 
We are so blessed! Life is good!
