{an anniversary trip}

this past weekend, joel and i celebrated our second anniversary in toronto, canada. it was  kind of a last-minute trip, and we really didn't have much of an itinerary going there, which is unusual for me.. i usually have a lengthy list of things i want to do/see. perhaps it is because of our busy, busy summer schedule that begins next weekend (five weddings + three showers + two grad parties...) that i didn't really want any strict schedule to follow. 

we didn't wander aimlessly the whole weekend though... there were a couple of things that i insisted we do while we were there. we visited the colorful kensington market, traveled to the top of the CN tower and walked the lovely waterfront (and enjoyed some yummy food + drink, of course). we did this all on foot, which felt amazing and made me feel less guilty about aforementioned food/drink.

i only managed to snap a handful of photos because i suck at remembering to do that, but here are a few of my faves.

 
and now, for a little cheesefest :
 


I LOVE YOU joel, my one and only! thank you for being an amazing husband -- for sacrificing for me, for always lifting me up, for always finding a way to bring a smile to my face even when i'm being a negative nancy or grumpy gus, for putting my needs before your own, for making me feel tremendously loved...  the list goes on and on. i am so blessed to be living life with you and am excited for all of the adventures we have yet to embark on together!
