2nd Wedding Anniversary - Cotton

We have been so blessed this past year. Good health. Good Job. A roof over our head. Food on the table every day. And good friends and family watching out for us. This year, we celebrated our 2nd Wedding Anniversary on Whidbey Island. We stayed at a beautiful vacation rental across the street from the ocean. It is a great location to whatever touristy thing you could or would want to do. We relaxed a lot, slept in late, cooked at the house so we didn't have to worry about what restaurant to go to and just enjoyed being together, alone with nothing that we had to do if we didn't want to. It was a really relaxing and nice vacation.
We did venture out a few times. We went to downtown Coupeville and walked through the shops. We also stopped at Toby's Tavern for a house beer, chicken and sausage gumbo and some fries. It was all really good and gave me something to add to our menu list at home to make.

We went into several little shops that carried a lot of souvenirs and other little tchotchkes to buy. But one of our favorite shops had this sticker in the window.

This made our day - we were laughing for a while, so we ended up going in and buying a magnet with this saying on it. I also love the little dutch boy and girl salt and pepper shaker kissing in the background.

The other time we chose to go out to eat was on our actual anniversary. We were both very hungry and we not going to be picky about where or what we were going to eat. We went to a mexican restaurant - I can't even remember the name of it, but it was in Oak Harbor. We both ordered and we ate, but we weren't impressed. The beans tasted like a tin can and the rice was really dry. We ate because we were hungry and I wasn't going to be picky, but we should have been because our dinners gave us tummy troubles later. Ugh.

I wanted to make our evening special, so before we left, I designed a logo for our get away. I put it on two wine bottles and also made t-shirts for the both of us. Since it was our Cotton anniversary, I thought it would be perfect for a gift for Peter. He liked it, but it was way too cold to wear it. It was the thought that counts, right!? Here is a photo of the wine bottle.

We also spent some time at Fort Casey. We hiked around for about two hours. It was a lot of fun. While we were there, we saw these guys practicing Kite Dancing. It was amazing how they were guiding and flying the huge kites synchronized. We also went down onto the beach, walked around the light house and just had a overall good time. 

We went for a few walks on the beach close to the house and while we were out. I got my heart in the sand again for this trip and we also found our heart shaped rock. Everywhere we go we always find one!

Hooray for Two Years of Wedded Bliss!!!
