TWO & Counting

* insert Yuna ft Usher-Crush* that's how i'm feeling.
Goofing around on my Trad Wedding day
we cuul lyk datt *wink*
It's our 2 year anniversary!!
We had our marriage ceremonies on May 16 &17 so we consider both days our anniversary. I can't believe its been 2 years already, its still quite surreal although way less surreal to me than our 1 year anniversary
There were not as many highlights as the period preceding our 1 year anniversary, we had been chanced to have many 'firsts' together and make lots of good memories in that time. 
During our 2nd year together was when it sunk in a bit more that we are married, there were highlights of course but more challenges than our 1st year together, i'm grateful to God for helping us overcome and rise above all the drama that can comes with this marriage ride.
I'm looking forward to celebrating our 3rd year anniversary and maybe we'll be three celebrating then by God's grace.
May 16th-We had to go to work, but i dressed up all fancy 'cos i was feeling super-happy, grateful, excited and all the other types of happy feelings *widegrin'. We chatted and spoke on phone during the day and after work hubby made us dinner & we spent the rest of the day together just chilling at home and reflecting on our life, future and all that good stuff. We also replied messages and calls from our loved ones wishing us a Happy Anniversary. We later drove out to get Habib Fura  da nono with coconut slices *Yummyyy!!* (i tink it has become a habit to eat something sweet on our anniversary, y'all know i'm a foodie & sweettooth so really i'll take any opportunity to have sweet stuff) and bumped some jams before heading back home, jisting some more and going to bed reallyyy late.

Yaasss. i seriously dolled up to work, my colleagues never esperred it

May 17th-We had to go to work again of course, and guess who was all dressed up again? Moi!! lol. yup it seems the happy feelings gonna last me thru the entire week and i don't mind one bit. Same daytime routine as the previous day. We went to Al-Basha Restaurant, Maitama for Lunner (Lunch/Dinner). We sat in a private area, ate to our heart's content *foodie/sweettooth mode* and we talked 'bout deep sturves. We took pics (well i forced him to take pics, if it were left to him we would have no pics together and later he'll be begging me to send him nice pics of us *side eye*). Back home, we watched movies and enjoyed the rest of the nite jisting, playing, singing n listening to music, watching youtube dance vids together, etc. I eventually took down my hair (Freedom from Bobby Pins!!) and we  replied messages and calls from our loved ones wishing us a Happy Anniversary once more. As usual we went to bed superrrrlate.

What do people do for their 2nd Year Anniversary?? *shrugs* I guess whatever they enjoy. We had fun in our own way and as always made some happy memories *insert Brymo-Happy Memories*.
I am so grateful to God that we are able to pass the 2 year mark, its definitely a big deal to us. It has been the grace of God that has kept us together this long and i pray we will live to celebrate many more happy, goofy, fruitful and prosperous years together. This past year has been quite the journey, even moreso than our 1st year together, a learning process still ongoing. We have had our laughs, tears, quarrels, disagreements, disputes, fun, goofiness, love, lows, highs, and so much more. We are learning more about each other daily, communication, patience, appreciation, and so much more.
Goofiness 98.999%
We choose to focus on the positives, appreciate what we have and make the best of it while improving on ourselves. Remember love cannot survive just by itself, it needs constant nurturing. Contentment while pursuing goals is the key to happiness. We should make a habit of counting our blessings and then we will see how much God does for us.
Remember Teamwork makes the Dream work.
We hope to share many more of our anniversaries with you guys. Check out my posts- Life as a 'new' wifey & Baby Pressure. I might also do a post on my 2nd year of marriage *fingers crossed*.
