Happy 10 Year Anniversary, Good Bye December

Spencer and I got married on December 20th. Weird I know. But I remember thinking, every year we'll have to take time out from a busy December and do something cool, just the 2 of us. Well, that kind of backfired for the first 10 years because we were always broke and had really small kids. But this year.... we kind of rocked it for our 10 year Anniversary.

We didn't have a lot of time, so we went on a little staycation to downtown Portland. We stayed at The Nines Hotel that is located right by Pioneer Court house. It was awesome! We shopped, we went out to dinner, we walked around downtown Portland for a while, it was fun. Happy Anniversary to us.

This year it was my favorite December in years. I am so sad to see it go. I'm not ready to stop listening to Christmas music, I'm not ready to pull down the Christmas lights, and I am certainly not ready to give up the Christmas treats. My kids have been amazing this season, I have loved watching Christmas specials on t.v.with them, telling them secrets of what I got their siblings, wrapping gifts with them, driving around looking at lights, taking them out to dinner. Why can't it last 2 more weeks? In January the gym gets busy, the food gets boring, and Spencer goes back to California:( This is the "library" at The Nines where they served us dessert at 8pm and breakfast at 8am. We probably spent at least 2-3 hours in here reading and talking.

This is our breakfast buffet, what, I always have my oatmeal in a fancy glass.

Our evening dessert with tea and reading. The pumpkin cheesecake was divine.

Pioneer Square Mall all decked out.

Elephants Delicatessen.

The menorah behind the FOX tower.

Where we had dinner. More hotel glamour.

I love it when someone else makes my bed.

Merry Christmas.

VERY awesome!!!! We got married in December, too, and some years are easier than others when it comes to celebrating. Actually, it's not the celebrating itself--it's being de-stressed enough to enjoy it! Anyway, looks like an AWESOME celebration!!! Happy anniversary!
