“Mi media naranja” literally means my half orange. As an expression, however, its meaning is closest to our version of “soulmate” or “my better half”. So today I dedicate this post to John, mi media naranja, because today we celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary! These past two years have been such a gift as we have learned to love and forgive, to cheer for each other, to comfort one another, and to put the other first. I also want to thank our family and friends for their unconditional love and support . We are so thankful for you!
John and I celebrated a little bit early by spending some time at the Clifton Inn in Charlottesville, VA. We had a such a wonderful time! The grounds are beautifully kept, the rooms are so full of elegance and style, and the food and service are truly in a class of their own. It is a lovely, lovely site for a wedding or a weekend getaway!
Here are some shots we took, thanks to a couple of adirondack chairs and our camera’s self-timer!
Our 2 anniversary! (and peace)
The butterfly bushes were incredible! We definitely decided that our next house is going to need a few in the yard.
