Two Year Anniversary

As of Tuesday, August 5, we have been married for two wonderful years!!! I really can't believe it's been that long - time truly does fly when you're having fun! Our anniversary itself was fantastic. We were able to take the day off work and just spend the whole day together. We kicked off our anniversary with presents (for me - Cy's present, a new iPod Nano, has yet to arrive). Cy bought me some beautiful flowers - a mixture of pink roses, pink carnations, and daisies. And he bought me the most beautiful necklace - a circlet made out of sapphires!!!

After presents, we had a nice, relaxing breakfast at IHOP. For lunch, we headed to Chili's and then to the movie theater where we saw the new Mummy movie (great movie). Then, for dinner, Cy had made reservations at our favorite restaurant for special occasions - Oak Steakhouse on Broad Street. We both agree that Oak has the best food we've ever eaten. We each had a 7 oz. filet mignon (I ordered mine with gorgonzola cream sauce; Cy chose the balsamic barbecue sauce) and shared a family-sized side of whipped potatoes. It was amazing. For dessert, we shared a slice of six-layer chocolate cake called "Chocolate Indulgence." It was such a fantastic day!

And it really has been two amazing years. We love each other more now than we did two years ago. And it just keeps getting better. :)
