1-Year Anniversary Recap

Well, we're back to real life here at the Atwood casa.  But, what a great weekend we had!!  Thank you to everyone who left us a Happy Anniversary comment--y'all are just too sweet!

Our "real" celebration for our anniversary won't take place for another couple of weeks (when we head to NYC!), but we had tons of fun this weekend celebrating around the house.    

I already mentioned that we kicked off the anniversary weekend on Friday night with shopping and Chipotle.  Then, on Saturday we spent the day running errands and doing some massive yard saling.  I'll post our deals later this week when I can take pictures of everything.

Sunday (which was actually our 1-year anniversary) was spent at church, and then Monday was our day to celebrate.  We woke up around 9 AM and ate a big breakfast then hit the road and took a 4-mile bike ride down one of our favorite trails.  When we got back home, we lounged some more and then went to The Lobster Trap to pick up our fresh Crab Legs.  We came back home and Nathan fired up the grill!  Our anniversary dinner consisted of Steak, Crab Legs, Lemon Pepper Broccoli and a yummy garden-fresh salad!  We even lit the candles for an extra romantic feel.

After dinner, Nathan and I got all fancied up in our wedding attire (I got this idea from Nathan's mom) and we took a few photos, ate our 1-year old cake, said our vows and danced in our living room.   It was such a nice evening, and a great time of reminiscing back over the past year of our marriage.

Thanks so much for bearing with us as we've gushed about our anniversary for the past few weeks--in case you missed any of the fun, be sure to check these posts: Kick-Off, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, He Said and She Said

Here's to many, many more years of Atwood love!
