When Vince and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary last year, well... we almost never got to celebrate it.  There was a heavy snow storm in Pennsylvania (first of that year), so the last minute, we cancelled our hotel reservation in Maryland.  Our plan was to drive early that day to Baltimore, which apparently was not affected by the snow storm then.  We waited for the snow storm to subside and when it did around 6:00 in the evening, we thought driving conditions would be better by then and so we went ahead with our plans.  Two hours and a half or so, we got there in Baltimore, and good for us, the hotel we booked and cancelled still had rooms available to accommodate us.  We had a late night dinner at the most popular Spanish restaurant in the area, and did a Segway tour around Baltimore the following day.

So, last week, we yet again celebrated our wedding anniversary.  This time, it was frankenstorm Sandy who created some sort of a havoc over the east coast.  If we were still living in Pennsylvania, I'm pretty sure, our second anniversary would have been a lot similar to the first one -- we either were rained in or snowed in stuck at home, but thank God since we had already moved here down south in Georgia, we were spared of Sandy's whips and twists.

Anyway, we had a wonderful anniversary celebration this year.  Our place here in Georgia is so close to Florida, we're just three hours away from Disney World -- yes, where the magic begins! ;)  We went to Disney in early 2010, but since then, we never had the chance to visit again, not until last week.  It brought us back sweet, fun and romantic memories of our first trip there ♥  Disney was actually Vince and mine's first major getaway together when we were still sweethearts trying the long distance shot, so I really couldn't help but feel a flutter in my heart to once again see those familiar roads and places (ehem, outlet malls, hehe!) we've been to before ♥

Moving forward...  at the hotel, I encountered problems with very slow Internet connection, which made me really stressed out (I was working remotely during our stay), but I'm glad that it didn't totally ruin our three-night four-day celebration in Orlando.  The first in our reservations was Oscar's Restaurant at Waldorf Astoria, but unfortunately, we were both sleepy and too tired to wake up early to make it on time for a 7:30 breakfast, hence we didn't go.  We tried to do it on the third day of our stay but the jurassickly slow Internet was really getting into my nerves (I was pulling my hair at my wits end!), we decided to just do the breakfast when we visit again in the future.

Despite the Internet fiasco, like I said, our celebration was immensely wonderful.  On our second night, we had a delightful and filling dinner at an Indian restaurant.  I was so full from all the naan, biryani and lamb rogan josh I ate that I suffered a tummy ache afterwards and I passed out in bed that night.  Haha!  On the day of our anniversary, we also received a great news from our lawyer regarding our status here in the States.  We finally received the much awaited approval of Vince's working visa, and that means he could start work ASAP!  Such a lovely anniversary gift to us ♥ The third night, we went to this very popular, fancy African restaurant located in Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge, and is called, JIKO.  Vince and I indulged on sumptuous meals (which made me feel like I was a judge on a Food Network show like Iron Chef or Chopped) including duck confit flatbread, seared duck and guinea hen.

The highlight of our celebration was when we watched La Nouba - Cirque du Soleil.  After dinner at JIKO, we drove to Downtown Disney where the Cirque du Soleil tent was located.  We had front and center tickets which made it more exciting and interesting.  We were seated so close to the stage!  All the performers were great -- from the clowns to the singers, to the dancers, to the tight rope walkers, to the jugglers, to the cyclists, to the trapeze flyers, to the trampoline artists -- all of them!  I thought I'd go into premature labor when the trapeze artists went flying on air.  LOL.  What else can I say?  It was simply a spectacular show worth watching ☻

Taking photos/videos is strictly prohibited during the show, so the only pictures we have were taken outside.

"La Nouba is a spectacle more visceral than intellectual.  An 11-year-old boy in the audience seemed to sense as much.  As the crowd filed out of the auditorium at the end of the show, his father asked him how he liekd it.  'My throat hurts,' he answered.  'Why?' asked the father.  'I think, I forgot to breath,' said the boy." -- The Orlando Sentinel
I'd like to take this chance to thank God for allowing Vince and I to celebrate another year of our marriage.  I pray that our love for each other as husband and wife continue to grow each day, and may we remain forever faithful to God and with each other.  Cheers to more wedding anniversaries, Vince!  I love you very much ♥
