august 28.

Two posts in one day? Retirement is good for this blog! (if you missed it, keep scrolling for the week 30 baby update).

One year ago, on August 28th, Scott and I said "I do". Our first year of marriage has been nothing short of eventful! Not only are we constantly on the go, but we are also expecting our first baby (duh) and bought a house. I'd say we knocked out two pretty major life events in our first year of marital bliss. It is hard to imagine that future years are going to be able to rival the first one, but I think Baby R's arrival just might trump everything that has come before.

But, back to this year. While we did check off some major life milestones it really has been all of the in between that has made this year complete and kept me as in love with Scott as the day we walked down the aisle. I truly love coming home to Scott (or having him come home to me) each and every day and keeping up with our crazy life together. Whether it is cooking dinner at home and listening to the same playlist we have heard 100 times on my iPod, finding new spots to dine out, or calling up Amici's for some delivery, each and every night (and day) is as special as the one before. There is no one I would rather take this journey with than my handsome, caring, thoughtful, fun and loving husband. And let's be honest, he let me retire...I'll keep him forever (I guess I have to, don't I?!). 

All kidding aside, we had a wonderful anniversary weekend to top off our first year. Let me tell you, one thing, among a zillion, Scott does well is anniversaries. He goes the extra step and is always beyond thoughtful and romantic. While the days were filled with lots of fun details, the one worth sharing with my blog readers is our dinner out in the city (and the fact I squished myself into a non-maternity dress from Jcrew for the event). We went to one of our favorites, A16. This is also the first restaurant Scott took me to when we began dating and I was just a visitor from Boulder. The night was perfect. We spent two hours eating, talking, and eating some more. I even had a glass of wine to celebrate.

Driving into the SF fog (which we both noted we don't miss at all). The lights on the left hand side of this picture are Candlestick Park. Brrrrrrrrr.
My wonderful husband.
My wine. I mean, me.
One year past, a lifetime to look forward to! (those specs are the fog "raining" on us)
This is a really long post and I am not even sure what I have written. Apparently I need more human interaction! The poms are cute but they aren't great conversationalists.

Ok, back to my house projects...they are going to be spectacular, just you wait!
