1st Anniversary


Happy Wednesday! Today is surgery day. Actually, by the time you read this, it will already be over with. With the hopes that it isn’t rescheduled again! I have zero expectations. None. I have no idea what it’s going to be like during or after. People keep asking me about recovery and at this moment, I have no idea. I have no idea how long it is going to take to feel back to normal. But, I haven’t felt “normal” since November therefore I am so willing to take a little pain and discomfort to get back to my regular self.

With that aside, let’s talk about something a bit more happy! Ryan and I had such a  wonderful time celebrating our 1 year anniversary together! We got showered with so many warm wishes from family and friends on our first year as husband and wife. We are so blessed!

While away for the weekend we were talking all things wedding. One of the things that came up in conversation was as idea. I suggested that we take one of our wedding pictures are re-take a new picture every anniversary in the same location. Watch how to change over the years.

It was pretty simple to pick our favourite location. While we loved the uniqueness of the old car in the bush, we loved the pictures on our porch best. It was just “us”. We love our home and the farm. We love our rocking chairs and will be spending many years rocking together on our front porch. So, we recreated a couple of those pictures!

It was fun to re-create and I think it will be nice to look back on all our pictures in many years from now!

As first anniversary traditions go, we also decided to take out the top of our wedding cake for dessert last night after supper! Besides a couple of wilted flowers, it looked pretty good!

And guess what? It wasn’t as horrible as I thought it would taste after a year in the freezer! There was a little bit of a sour freezer taste but it was definitely edible! In fact, my “I don’t like dessert” husband had a second slice!

It was a fun night setting up our mini photo shoot and polishing off some wedding cake. A great way to spend a Monday evening! It was a fun to commemorate our first year together and the wedding day that made us a family! 

Happy Wednesday!



  1. Aww, what a cute idea! Love the sitting on rocking chairs one! Happy Anniversary, crazy it has been 1yr already! And hope your surgery is going/went well.

  2. Love the idea of taking pictures each year on the porch!!

  3. Love the porch pictures. As a military family Reg and I moved too much to even consider that. It must be incredible to know you will be in your home forever.

  4. Upon returning to the starting line, the first player must pass the sugar
    cube to the next teammate in line and so
    on. Even Halloween parties with the very best Halloween costumes can get dry after
    everyone's seen the costumes to be seen and passed out the candy to the beggars. Play games all night long in keeping with the twenties theme such as various card games and crossword puzzles.

  5. Soon after readinging this short article, I had to remark in your part of Washington, DC.
    I agree with all the activites and employment opportunties, and so forth the area must offer.
    But I would have to disagree that "there are slightly more females than men in Washington, D.C., but about 33% on the populace is one." Somewhat is
    an understatement! There are A lot more ladies
    than guys, about 7-8 ladies far more than males.

    Contemplating the population's ethnic track record, courting preferences and sexualty, these stats vary. Many social businesses, meetups, and clubs host social and cultural occasions, which includes relationship occasions that often are in require of a lot more males. And due to there be far more males than girls, a lot of of them desire to proceed to be one and enjoy the several solitary women inside the region instead of settling down to have a family members. I invite you to get a online video digital camera for the streets of DC and job interview the females and see what sort of suggestions you receive contradictory for your stats.
