Celebrating one year! {wedding highlight video is working now!}

This weekend we celebrated our first wedding anniversary. It is so crazy to think that we have already been married for a year. We were engaged for two and a half years and that seemed to last forever. Though, the closer we got to the wedding, the faster it all seemed to go by. Now it feels like we blinked and we were seeing that same date on the calendar again. We had a low-key celebration but we spent today doing my most favorite thing, spending time with my husband!

This morning, Jeff did his usual Sunday morning grocery run but when he came home he made a delicious breakfast and we spent time opening the cards that we received in the mail this week. One of our sweet friends even gave us a beautiful bouquet of flowers!

Then we headed out to walk a local lake with Rocky. It was a gorgeous day, 70 and sunny!

For dinner, we had reservations at The Melting Pot. Jeff chose the Melting Pot, a fondue restaurant, because he knew it would last a long time and we could just sit and enjoy ourselves. We loaded up on spinach artichoke cheese dip, entrees that included lobster, filet mignon, duck, pork, and chicken, followed by a heavenly peanut butter chocolate dessert dip. It was seriously a pregnant woman's dream!  Since we made a reservation, they knew it was our anniversary and put us in "Lovers Lane", a section of the restaurant that was very intimate and secluded. It was perfect but so dark and we couldn't get a picture :( The waitress was amazing and she brought us our dessert tray with a candle in the cake and said, I know it's not a birthday but an anniversary and a baby are definitely something to celebrate! She was so sweet. We toasted to us and made a wish for our baby. It doesn't get much better than that.

Everyday, I am reminded of what an amazing relationship I have and how lucky I am that I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. Even when things aren't going the way we want them to, I can still say that I am lucky that Jeff just gets me and that he knows how to love me for better and for worse. These past six years have been better than I could have ever dreamed and marrying Jeff one year ago was the best decision I ever made. If I could do again, I wouldn't change a thing.

Happy First Anniversary to the love of my life! xoxox
