Two years of wedded bliss...

Ok, maybe it hasn't been all "bliss", but living the military life where my husband has been gone about 6 or 7 months of our marriage, and a move to the other side of the world might be partially to blame! All in all I have a fabulous husband! Living here has definitely brought us closer together. We really only have each other to rely on because we are so far away from family, and we have only a few good friends here. I think it has been great for us, and a place like this can either make or break a relationship. Sadly I have seen the "break part". It is tough, but we are in it for the long haul! (Just to clarify on the "break part", I meant I have seen living overseas break up OTHER familes, not us!)
Here are a few pictures from the best day of our lives!
Our fabulous bridal party.
Who doesn't love a man in uniform?

Tonight we went out to a nice dinner at a sushi restaurant we had never tried, called Sushi Zen. It was good (just like every sushi place is here). It was nice to just be together. In the year left that we have here I hope to only grow stronger within our relationship and enjoy being here on this island.
I look forward to many, many, many more anniversaries together!

Our 15 minutes, or maybe just 15 seconds of fame!

A few months ago, my cousin Jess (fellow military wife) told me that the Military Spouse Magazine was asking people to submit pictures of their military weddings. She suggested I send a few in. Well, lo and behold, our picture showed up in the magazine this month! Ok, well it is small, but hey, it's there!
So here is a picture I scanned of the page it was on, and of course it is one of my favorites!

Here, There and Everywhere

Well, there hasn't been a whole lot of exciting things going on here, so that is why I haven't blogged in a while. Here are a few pictures of the last few weekends, just hanging out here and there.
Last weekend we took the dogs for a long walk around the dam here. This isn't exactly a dog friendly island, so we are always looking for places that have trails or large grassy areas for them to get out their energy!
Here I am with my crazy Mischa.
John and Zeke. Zeke loves to pose for the camera!
Later, we went out on our date night to a great Italian restaurant by the ocean called Cafe Nirai.
They have a loft area with couches and a table, it is great for just hanging out and relaxing, not to mention a wonderful view!
This weekend we did what else, but scuba dive!
Here are a few pictures of us checking out the water and a few surfers at the Tsunami Seawall with John's friend Dean.
It is definately nice to have the ocean so close. It is so beautiful!
We chose a new area to dive and it was spectacular!
The coral was gorgeous and we saw tons of fish!
I know this picture is a little blurry but I was trying to show that we were 60 feet below the surface! I figured my dad would appreciate this one!
Well, I guess that is about all for now. Hopefully soon we will do something exciting for me to blog about!
