Is it too late to mail wedding thank yous?

My wedding was almost two years ago, and I never sent out official thank you cards, because apparently I suck. I want to go ahead and send them out now, but would that be even more awkward?

Because of stupid life circumstance stuff, my husband and I never mailed the thank you cards after the wedding. Many of the notes are completed, and I think they are still in a moving box, but they weren't mailed and the wedding was in August of 2009. Every couple weeks or so I think about this and get that awful sick guilty feeling. I feel terrible that I never mailed these, but at the same time, mailing out thank yous now seems like it would just call attention to how much I suck. I've thanked most of the people in person or in email, but I still feel bad.
Is it a dumb idea to send out notes on/near our second anniversary, saying something about how I'm sorry I never sent out a thank you after the wedding, but we're doing great and we use x gift all the time? Or does that just make me look more like a jerk? In most cases I would just sort of suck up my guilt and say, "I'll do better next time," but I'm really only planning on getting married the once, so I'm having more of a complex about this than usual.
