Today is mine and Alan’s 4 year anniversary!
It was such a wonderful day the day we were married! And our love has grown ever since.
Alan and I are very similar, but instead of boring you with how great we are together, I wanted to share some things about us that are actually quite opposite. Ok here we go.
I hate the cold. Hate hate hate, hate hate, loathe entirely! I just can’t get warm once I’m cold. I love the sun and the heat. Alan has great memories growing up with the snow and he hates being hot. Like gets super grumpy if he’s overly hot. So we decided we need to end up in St. George where we can have the best of both worlds. 🙂
Engaged in 2009.
Alan is a morning person. His natural wake up time is about 6am. He just can’t really sleep in or nap. I am a night owl. I often function better at night and my natural wake up time is more like 9am. It works with having kids because I take the night shift and he takes the morning shift.
Our wedding day – November 20, 2009
If we ever have a disagreement, Alan likes to talk about it right away, but I like to walk away and take time to just calm down so I can be rational. And that just kills him!
One year anniversary – 2010
Alan loves to hike. I don’t. I like the outdoors and went camping growing up, but I don’t love hiking. I’m more of a sports person.
Just after our two year anniversary – 2011
I really like chick flicks. And Alan actually will watch most with me. But he got tired of Downton Abbey pretty quickly and doesn’t like most Jane Austen type movies. To his credit he does like Pride and Prejudice.
Just before our 3 year anniversary – 2012
Alan hates surprises. If he knows about a surprise it stresses him out and he has to know what it is. So if I want to surprise him I just can’t tell him that’s what I’m doing. I love surprises! But I usually seem to figure them out so it’s Alan’s mission to try to really surprise me when he can.
We took this picture on Sunday – 2013
I have loved every minute of our 4 years together. I love you Alan Tanner! Happy Anniversary!
