One Year Anniversary!
Our one year anniversary has already come + gone!!! A year of traveling back + forth from Vancouver, Calgary + Los Angeles for the first year of our marriage!
I hope those dark days of traveling back + forth have come to an end, because I’ve been spoiled by spending a majority of the summer with Jeff! Spending time with your new husband! What a concept!
We have been so busy with the move from Calgary to Vancouver that we hadn’t even stopped to plan anything!!!! And of course, the day of our anniversary was the same day that Jeff started his new job. Luckily, it was just a meet + greet so he got off of work at a reasonable hour. Of course right when Jeff got home, he started mowing the lawn!!! This man cannot relax!
And no, the candle is not for romance, necessarily. It’s due to the fact that we actually don’t have any lighting fixtures in the house yet. The dining table was a tablecloth draped over a piece of plywood + two rubbermaid boxes.
With a “1” candle from the market! Awwwwwww.
The week plodded on with tedious projects to accomplish in our crazy house that I shall now name, “Sally”. Sally is in reference to Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. Sally is a patched up rag doll who frequently falls apart, but she is lovely + sweet all the same – just like our new home.
Over the weekend, Jeff + I drove south to Bellingham, Washington to officially celebrate our anniversary!!! I made secret reservations at Hotel Bellwether during the week as a surprise for Jeff.
Dinner was a 5 minute walk to Giuseppe’s Italian Restaurant. We were so starved that we forgot to take a picture at dinner. Don’t bother with the cioppino, but definitely get the Fettuccine Giardini Naxos!!!! A seafood fettuccine tossed in a yellow curry sauce. Sound unorthodox, but it was soooooooooo yummy!!!! Here’s Jeff enjoying the Profiteroles – chocolate mousse filled cream puffs. Num.
Thank you, Pacific Northwest for embracing me into your wet + chilly, yet somehow warm folds. I can’t believe it’s been a year that Jeff + I have been married! We are the best of friends + love having adventures together, scrapping + getting into mischief!!!! I know together we will NEVER be bored. It’s always crazy – but a dull moment does not exist in our vocabulary!!!!! I can’t wait for all the ultimate wacky antics that our next year will hold!!!!
