Our First Anniversary

Monday, July 27, 2015

Wow, I can't believe that we've been married for one whole year!  You know you're getting older when you say that time flies but it seriously does!  This past weekend was full of celebration--Saturday was Dustin's 30th birthday and then yesterday was our one year anniversary.  

Being married to Dustin has been my most favorite thing ever.  I've learned so much about myself, him, and I've seen how much grace I constantly need so I pray that I've extended grace, too.  I pray that we glorify the Lord in our marriage and the decisions that we make.  We've accomplished so much in our first year of marriage--deciding to build a house and then actually building and moving, and I started grad school.  It's been a fun year and I've had the best friend to experience it with! :)

Yesterday morning Dustin came in from work, woke me up by telling me happy anniversary, and then he told me not to go in the kitchen until I woke him up.  Well of course I couldn't go back to sleep, so we exchanged gifts at 6:45 AM Sunday morning.  

 Here's what I walked into the kitchen to see :)
I got a new umbrella, monogrammed rain jacket, picture frame, dress from Nordstrom, and a shirt from Anthropologie.  

I went ahead and got ready for church and Dustin went back to sleep since he had just worked a 12 hour shift.  When I got home, he was already up.  I had been thawing out of cake since Friday morning and when I opened the box I saw...
 Apparently I should have put it in the fridge after it was almost all thawed out!  Oh well--it still tasted pretty good!  Our cake really was so good at our wedding, and we were pleasantly surprised when we tasted the cake topper.

 Excuse the iPhone photo, but that's what happens when it's just y'all two.  We had to have a selfie before we went out to eat!

He's so handsome!

And he made me take one, too.  This is the dress I left our wedding in a year ago!

Before we went out to eat, we stopped at Steel City Pops's newest location in Bridge Street.  We love SCP!  I also got the cutest new dress at Anthropologie before we had to be at our reservations because my dress from Nordstrom ran small and they were back-ordered until September.
