Celebrating our 2nd wedding Anniversary

       I dont believe i have been living in the Netherlands and married for 2 years. Honestly time flies, it is a little bit scary. There should be a way to stop the clock :)
Last year we didn't really celebrate our anniversary because i was catching a flight to lebanon to run a 10 km race.
This year we decided to take a long weekend and go to Maastricht.
 Maastricht is one of the oldest towns in the Netherlands and has a long history as a strategically important location. Maastricht is on this strange peninsula of the Netherlands which juts out from its bottom right corner into what should be, by all 
rights, Belgium. This peninsula is surrounded on the south and the west by Belgium, and by Germany on the east. There’s a distinct difference in the way Dutch is spoken here, much softer and without much of the throat-scraping and spittle-inducing consonants. In other words, much more Belgian.
The town has a more Belgian feel to it as well. It’s an old town with small cobblestone streets and quaintly off-kilter house fronts.

The town is amazing! We stayed a the BeauMont Hotel. A really nice Hotel, they have very comfortable beds :) We shopped till we dropped. I was so excited to buy new baby clothes.We also visited Magraten, i was speechless. The World War II Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial is the only American military cemetery in the Netherlands. It was exactly what i usually see in movies, i couldn't imagine a more beautiful cemetery.

I am so blessd to have a wonderful Husband. We were remembering our wedding day, it seems like yesterday but at the same time we have done so much since that day!! Here some pictures of one of the best day of my life.
