I’m thrilled to say that today marks Adam and I’s 2nd wedding anniversary. I thought it would be fun to reminisce a bit through my blog, as Adam is never very on board for all that mushy stuff. :)
Here are some questions and answers that I thought would be fun to answer and then to have to compare to in years to come.
Number of years married: 2
Number of years together: almost 4
Ages: I’m a week short of 29 and he is 32.
Where we live: Our house in Nixa that fits us perfectly for the time being.
Number of kids: ONE! Our almost 3-month old Avery Grace.
Where do I work? About to start my 7th year teaching at Central. And I finished off my fifth and final (for now) year of coaching tennis by sending a doubles team to State.
Where does Adam work? He is about to start his 11th year of teaching, and his 5th at Ozark. (I think I got that right.) Plus he is starting his second year of coaching junior high football, which he really enjoyed last season.
What awesome things have happened within the last year? We went on vacation to Weston/Miami Florida last summer and to Memphis on a Babymoon over our Spring Break. We also got pregnant with our first baby, then in May welcomed her into the world. So, pretty much the most awesome thing possible happened. :)
What do we enjoy doing as a couple? We are very much home-bodies when we aren’t on vacation. So just being home together is on the top of our list…especially when we are in the midst of all the busyiness that comes with school and coaching. And now of course, the time it takes to take care of a newborn. We also love working in the yard together, watching sports (what ever is in season), and eating out.
In our marriage we are really good at… supporting each other. Adam is the calm one, who can always bring my high-strung self back together when I’m panicked or worried about something. I do my best to take care of him in any way that he lets me, even if it’s little things like laundry and cooking dinner with no carbs!
We’re dreaming of… always our next vacation, hopefully to the beach next summer with Avery. A day when no baby cries ALL day long. And of course our retirement.
We’re busy with… school very soon, and for a few more weeks entertaining our newborn.
We want to… finish more master’s classes this year. I’m hoping to completely finish. And to continue to save money for our retirement and future trips.
I like to… read, spend time on the treadmill, watch bad TV. I’m currently hooked on watching past seasons of The Vampire Diaries. (Thanks Mari and Katie.), and of course try to get my precious baby to smile.
Adam likes to… hunt, play golf, work in the yard, play X-box on occasion, and keep up with the sports world. He is also a master of Words with Friends. I don’t think I will ever beat him at that one.
What does a typical day look like? We are still working on what’s typical now that Avery has arrived. Not to mention it will all change very soon when we both head off to work.
Anniversary Plans: We have spent the day at home…nothing exciting, but at least we are together. Probably dinner out somewhere yummy tomorrow night.

I love you Adam. Happy Anniversary! I can’t wait for all the years we have to come. -Lindsey
