2 years...

Today marks 2 years since I said "I do" to Mr. Stephen Baker.  I love being his wife.  I love being a mother.  I love how many memories we've made in the lifetime we've already had together (I feel as though I've always known him). 

I love looking back.  Here was 3 years ago. 

I gave Stephen an "opening day" basket.  He's taught me so much about the game of baseball and I really love it.  We can't wait to take little AB to her first baseball game.  It probably won't be to see the Cubs, but she'll love being outside and cheering along whoever we go see.

And then a year later, we were married.  That was such a fabulous day and I would LOVE to do it all over again.  (and be able to fit into my dress again.  Someday.  Someday).

And then we left for Carmel Valley, CA.  Our dream.  Where we want to retire.  And move everyone we know to.  Where I discovered my love for lavender.  And curvy roads that lead to Big Sur.  I miss this place every day.

And then a year later, I was pregnant.  The wine we had purchased on our honeymoon would have to wait.  We celebrated our one year anniversary with sparkling apple cider.  I had no idea how much our lives would change in just a few short months.  When our Annie Beth would arrive.

And here we are today.  2 years later.  With our little baby girl, who has captured every fiber in my being.  She is wrapped 20 times around both Stephen and my fingers.  She is the biggest joy and perfect product of the love Stephen and I have for each other.  We could not be more blessed by this little one.

We have so much to look forward to.  So many fun memories together.  I love this picture as I feel like we're looking out to our future.  It's bright and I can't wait for all the wonderful days to come together!

I love you Stephen Baker.  You are such an amazing husband, father and best boyfriend a girl could ask for ;)  Excited to go on a date tonight!  It will be nice to eat a meal at the same time!  ;)
