Jessica I am so sorry. I wish I was there with a cocktail and a hug! I am an excellent sympathetic crier. Losing pets can be so hard, as we so often truly make them members of the family. I am so glad you were able to talk to him one last time and give him some love. I would venture to say, he was holding on until he saw you again. As far as the first part of your post, happy anniversary! Glad you were able to sneak away for some much needed sleep! I remember when my husband and I had our first night away after our daughter was born. We imagined we would go out and party all night like the old days.... nope. Dinner and a cocktail then ZZZZZZ.
