first ONE of many

When I said, “I do” to Anderson one year ago I had no idea what the months following would entail. I was sufficiently warned that the first year is the hardest and prepared myself for disagreements over all the hot topics. You know: money, work, sex, communication, what to make for dinner, whether or not we should buy a dog, etc. 🙂 But I’m so thankful that I can honestly say it was much easier than I expected. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had our share of arguments, I mean lively discussions! What else can you expect with two highly-opinionated people living under the same roof?! But I couldn’t have imagined a happier, more joyful experience than this year. Our FIRST year!

We celebrated in Orlando over the weekend. We’re horrible at taking self portraits. It always makes me laugh!

Trying to put our Ikea purchases in the Mini Cooper. He did it too! Everyone was staring as we pulled into the loading area with that tiny car. 🙂

My mom is simply the coolest mom ever. She had this little mini replica made of our wedding cake. We were really excited about eating the top tier of our cake on our anniversary, but she was worried that it would be gross. She was right. This cake was much tastier than the original!
