One year ago

This weekend mark's our one-year anniversary. I can't believe that it's been a year! Cliche to say, but it goes by so quickly.

One thing I feel compelled to say is how wonderful, amazing and fun it's been. I think too often marriage get a bad rep. I've heard a ton of whiners say miserable things and sly comments under their breath, by the reality is - for us and many others that I know - marriage, especially the first year, is AMAZING. For us it's been comfort and freedom, stability and adventure. I just don't think that enough people talk about how exciting it really is.

This weekend, my husband and I will return to where it all started - both our first date location and the place we were married. We'll stay at the Sofitel on Rittenhouse Square, where we'll get to enjoy more of the luxurious bed than we did last year and will order room service and take long naps. And we'll have an over-the-top dinner at Davio's, our reception location. But mostly, I'm looking forward to walking around the city, which I completely have a love affair with. I work downtown every day, but there is something about the feeling of escaping here on a little vacation that makes me swoon.

And now, just because I can - one last time - my favorite pics from our wedding (thanks for indulging me, once again):

{And a little shout-out to our super cool photographers!!}
What did you do to celebrate your one-year anniversary? I'd love to know!

I was diagnosed with DVT in the first yr of marriage. I had just gotten out of the hospital for the second time the day before our first anniversary. We went to the place where we dined the night my husband propsedto me for dinner.
It was wonderful because I was still alive.
This November we will celebrate 10 yrs.
Congratulations to you on a big milestone. Many more to come your way.
