3 years

Ah what an awesome couple of weeks I have had!
As my previous 10-line post stated, I got back from Colorado last WednesdSay night at 9, woke up the next morning for my new job at 6, worked all day Thursday and Friday, and as soon as I got home Friday, Jared whisked me away on a surprise anniversary trip.
We drove to Pendleton, Oregon Friday night, and stayed at the Wildhorse Casino. We watched some people win big at the roulette table, and mostly watched people lose big everywhere else haha. We got up Saturday morning and finished the drive to Depoe Bay, Oregon, where we pulled up to the cutest Bed and Breakfast called "Pana-sea-ah". A play on the word "panacea" which means a remedy for all ills. The owner, Bob, met us at our car and helped up take our bags to our room upstairs, and gave us the tour. This is the first real bed and breakfast either of us had stayed at so it was a neat experience.

We immediately headed down to the beach, which was about a 45 second walk from our b&b. We dipped our toes in the frosty ocean, and walked down to some huge rocks and explored the tide pools and climbed over the top to some absolutely gorgeous views.
That night we went to a little fish and chips shop and it was delicious...
Sunday we got to have breakfast prepared by Bob with 6 of the other guests, this amazing peach french toast souffle and other fancy things. Then we headed a couple miles down the coast for some whale watching. We took a zodiac style boat, which only held 6 people, but we were the only ones on it, so it was our own private tour with Captain Gary. Sadly we did not see any whales...it was pretty windy and a bit drizzly, so we couldn't see them, but it was so cool to take this little boat out on the beautiful ocean and get a bit of a tour.
That night we went to "Tidal Rave" restaurant and had some awesome crab cakes, and enjoyed our seat overlooking the ocean. I always snuffed the Oregon coast as not being a real "beach" because it was cold, and you couldn't surf there (well you can, you'd just have to be a little crazy) but I was definitely pout in my place. I loved it there, it may not be tropical, but the nautical beach is just as beautiful.
Daturday night we watched these awesome documentaries about mermaids on the animal planet...totally real. It was mostly fun to sit and gasp, and laugh and yell things like "sweeeet!" with my sweetheart, he loves those kinds of things.
Monday we woke up to another awesome breakfast by Bob, and took off for the long drive home. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband who is so conscientious of me, and what I need. When I need someone to talk to, he talks, when I need someone to listen, he listens, when I need to be held, there are his arms. I couldn't have wished for a better spouse. Discovering the world together is our favorite thing to do. He takes care of me and loves me absolutely, I am lucky to hear it multiple times a day.
I'm so glad for these three years, and cannot wait for the next 80 at least :)
