that original feeling never went away,  
& that's why i'm standing here today...
it's offically been one year since we became mr. & mrs.
we love celebrating our love, and today feels like the biggest celebration yet!
i will always love the first of june for officially making me a wife to the love of my life.
i loved that day so much and love celebrating it now!
...we are celebrating by...
 eating the top of our wedding cake,
{thanks to my mom for sending it to us!!! that must have been a pretty penny, you are the best.}
doing whatever husband has planned for us, exchanging gifts, and
then getting excited for our big 1st anniversary trip next month!!!!
{details on that soon}
it has been the best and happiest first year of marriage i could ever ask for. we moved to LA for the summer, then up the bay...moved into our darling first apartment, went to jamaica, started teach for america, lost {then found} my wedding ring, started grad school, met new friendsroad tripped down the california coast, fell in love with venice beach, celebrated husband's birthday with a surprise trip, visited home a few times, explored every inch of san francisco, beached it at santa cruz and half moon bay, had lots of visitors, played tennis {and i coached it}, celebrated our engagement in the same city it happened in, had lots and lots of date nights, went apple picking, met our best friends, celebrated 6 months of marriage, took a trip to solvang, had our first married christmas, rang in 2013, had the perfect valentines day, explored seattle, celebrated every holiday, traveled to paris & rome, played in laguna beach and miami, got pad thai & froyo a million times, moved to manage apartments, made lots of good food, chase got into law school, and mostly we fell even more in love...and i mean that. 

for every anniversary, we plan on doing a big trip to celebrate.
we have it planned for next month, so for today husband has
planned everything...and i can't wait to see what we do!
