Happy Anniversary to Us! (A little late!)

It's hard to believe that (over) a year has gone by since our wedding day.
It really seems like just yesterday that we were getting ready to say "I Do"
and experience one of the best days of our lives.

We were so excited to see each other! The anticipation was killing us! :-)

What an amazing year it has been! I've heard people say that the first year of marriage is the hardest and others say it's the best time of your life. I'd have to agree with both points of view. It's been a great journey so far but it's come with it's fair share of bumps along the way. Our relationship is rock solid but it's the outside factors that have been tough! (Can we say economy?!?) We've made it out in one piece tough and it gives me so much hope because I feel like Jeff and I have been through so much in our four years together that we can endure anything God has in store for us!

So, now for the fun part! The Anniversary weekend! Jeff sent me an email a few days before and said to "be ready by 11am on Sunday dressed cute and casual, bring a nice outfit for dinner and pack an overnight bag." I didn't know anything else but just those few details! I was so excited. Well, to my surprise, he had booked an amazing spa treatment for the 2 of us at ZaSpa at Hotel Zaza in Downtown Dallas. We had an 80-minute hot stone couples massage followed by a relaxing and very romantic aromatherapy bath with champagne. After that we walked to get an appetizer because we hadn't eaten all day. We came back to our hotel room, took a nap and then got ready for dinner. Jeff then took me to Morton's Steakhouse where we had a yummy steak dinner followed by dessert with the top of our wedding cake. (Successfully frozen for the year thanks to Mom!) We also drank a bottle of "J" Pinot Noir that my Aunt Suz & Uncle Trey gave us last year - we had been saving it the whole year!

Dinner at Morton's one year later...I think we've held up pretty well! So happy & in love!

We woke up the next day and had a few mimosas, great breakfast & most importantly celebrated Jeff's 41st Birthday!! What a great weekend it was! Happy Birthday Honey! Thank you for an amazing weekend - and more importantly, for being such a loving, thoughtful and romantic husband! I couldn't ask for anything more!

Here's to many, many more anniversaries!
Love you!
