A year ago we got married here:
And ate amazing lunch here:
And we had an awesome reception:
And it was the best day ever. No really. While planning our wedding I was sort of stressed that I would be disappointed. I wanted everything to be perfect. The day was way more amazing than I could have ever imagined. The ceremony was incredible. The lunch was so delicious and people said such nice things. The reception was beautiful. The weather was in our favor. We had a good time. We did all the things people say you can't do at your reception. Like we ate. And didn't get tired. And my feet didn't hurt. And I didn't get bored of talking to people. And we enjoyed ourselves. It could have gone on for 5 more hours. It was so much fun. The perfect day to begin an awesome year of marriage.
People like to give advice before you get married. I didn't mind it. But for every time someone said it was great they also said "but its hard". After a year, I'm still waiting for the hard part. I'm not saying it's perfect. But hard is not the first thing I would tell someone. I would tell someone it is fun. So much fun. But only if you marry someone really really great. Someone that will work really hard to make you happy and make you smile and make you laugh. Thats who I married. And that's why it has been so fun. I honestly can not believe its been 1 year since that spring day in April. Every time I hear our wedding song I feel a little piece of the joy of that day. Home is whenever I'm with you. I love you Sam. Happy Anniversary (yesterday).
We celebrated our anniversary mostly with food. I made Sam a man breakfast. (Hashbrowns, real bacon (something we have in our house twice a year) and cheesy eggs).
We went to a Mexican restaurant, La Sandia for lunch.
And ate dinner at Wasabi, a sushi restaurant.
And we had some Martinelli's:
Sam got me this beautiful necklace that is my birthstone:
I kept a journal this past year of a nice thing he's done for me each day:
And we watched our wedding video.
