• Four Years with Mal

    July 12, 2012

    As cheesy as it may sound, four years ago today, I married my best friend.

    Mal rules for a lot of reasons, but my favorite is that we always have so much fun together—whether it’s doing CrossFit, traveling, drinking beers, or simply making up spur-of-the-moment games to play together—we always manage to make each other laugh. And (also important) we somehow balance our equally neurotic personalities quite well, so living and spending a lot of time together works out just fine for us. I still have no idea how I got so lucky with a guy like Mal. He’s the best.

    Happy anniversary, Mal!!!!!


    Here’s a quick recap of our past three anniversaries. Feel free to click on the link for the full recap.

    A Simple Celebration (3 years)

    Last year’s anniversary celebration was pretty low-key, but still really nice. Mal and I ate dinner on the back porch, and I surprised him with new Adirondack chairs for our backyard. Reading the recap this morning put the biggest smile on my face!


    Celebrating Two Years

    Mal and I had a blast celebrating our 2-year wedding anniversary. We were invited to spend the night at Hotel Veritas in Harvard Square. The hotel’s Guest Services Manager is an avid Carrots ‘N’ Cake reader, so she offered to put us up for the night. What was such a fun way to celebrate!


    Our First Wedding Anniversary

    For our first anniversary, we ended up visiting Kath and Erica in Charleston, South Carolina. It wasn’t the most romantic first anniversary, but it was definitely a nice vacation with friends! (Seriously, what the f am I wearing in the photo below? Derp.)

    Congratulations!!! I love this line: “And (also important) we somehow balance our equally neurotic personalities quite well” So sweet. 😛 My boyfriend and I went to a winery last year for our 1st anniversary; it was so hot but a lot of fun.

    Congrats on four years of wedded bliss. It’s nice to see 🙂 I think it’s great when a couple finds time to workout together.

    Our anniversary is September 17th. We had always gone on a camping trip for our ‘dating anniversaries,’ and decided to keep the tradition with our wedding anniversary. We went to Las Vegas for a few days and then went backpacking in the Grand Canyon. Definitely the best (yes, technically the first) anniversary ever!
