Two Weeks Letter

My fridays are usually reserved for my Best Week Ever posts and upon reflection today I realised it really has been the best two weeks.  So much has happened and so many great memories shared with both family and friends in several cities.  So today I share another sneek peek photograph of Ryan and I on our 10th Wedding Anniversary in Wales and a special letter to recap the best two weeks.

A Letter to my Last Two Weeks

Dear Weather,
Thank you for being amazing without being over the top.  Up until our vacation in Wales we were experiencing a heat wave in England.  We leave for Wales and welcomed with rain showers.  It did not ruin our plans and I had one of my favourite memories from my trip.  A hike in Dollegau with just my husband ended in a rain shower and a fun run back to our B&B. It rained the morning of our anniversary, just like the morning of our wedding, which I had been told ten years ago was good luck. Which we indeed did have with perfect weather onwards.

Dear Family,
Thank you to my mum and sister for coming out to the UK for our 10th Anniversary and to be a part of our Vow Renewal. Ryan, the boys, and I enjoyed creating more wonderful memories together.  We are already looking forward to our trip to France next year.

Dear Friends,
I am beyond words when it comes to thanking my dear friends from Uni, Grant and Miriam, for coming out to celebrate with us.  Thank you for traveling all the way from Germany with your kids.  I loved watching all of our kids play so well together and how it felt like no time had passed.  Thank you for traveling so close to your due date and I anxiously look forward to hearing the baby news!  Thank you to my other friend from Uni, Lauren, who opened her place in Notting Hill for us to stay for two nights.  We greatly appreciate it and had such a wonderful time in London for two days.  Thank you to my friend, Leigh, whom I met while we both lived in Hawaii and who modeled for me several times.  Thank you for meeting up with us in Oxford and for showing us around the city.  It has been so great to meet up a couple times now in the UK, and I look forward to meeting up again in Oxford soon!  Thank you to my long time family friends in Oxford for letting us share a day with you and for letting us catch up over the years since when I was a little girl. Again, because I cannot say it again, thank you to all my blogger friends who took care of my blog while I was away.

Dear Sons,
Thank you for being the cutest and sweetest boys I know.  Watching how much fun you had over the last two weeks made my world.  Seeing you laugh, smile, and make new friends was so wonderful.  You really touched my heart during our vow renewal with your sweet words and sweet song.  Thank you for making my life complete.

Dear Ryan,
The best two weeks have been because of you.  The first week as part of our first ten years of marriage and the second week as the first week of our next ten.  I love you so much and so proud to have stood up in front of our family and friends to pledge our love together.  Thank you loving me as I enjoy every day I get to love you and look forward to many more anniversaries together.
