January 4th 2004

Our two year anniversary!!  We spent most of day at Ambers house enjoying the presence of her sister Kierstin who was heading back home to California the next day.  About a week later, I wanted to surprise Amber with a 'back to the future' type of night where we celebrate a romantic evening as if it was the date of our anniversary.  I had a meal prepared, candles lit, a huge 'Happy 2nd Anniversary' sign made, some of our songs playing on a CD player, and a heart shaped brownie for desert.  Amber was at work for most of the day so I had lots of time to prepare.  However, she got off of work early because she didn't feel well.  I called her to have her come over but she still wasn't feeling so great.  I didn't tell her about the surprise and by the time she came over it was pretty late.  We laughed about it and ended up watching a movie.
