First of all, Stephen and I celebrated our 1 Year Anniversary on September 1st! I can't believe how quickly our first year of marriage has gone by. At the same time, I feel like we've been married for a long time because it feels so right and natural to be with Stephen. We definitely belong together and it's hard to even imagine life any different than it is today.
For our anniversary, we had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants - The Melting Pot! Mmmmm, so good and fun! It's a fondue restaurant and every course is served fondue style, meaning you skewer the food and actually cook it at the table. Here's some pictures of the fun:
And the absolute best part...DESSERT!
Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fondue anyone?
I can taste the goodness just by looking at that picture.
We also went to a movie and then drove out to the lake and spent some time talking about our favorite things from our first year of marriage and things we're looking forward to in year 2. Here are a few of our favorites from yr 1: honeymoon in Maui, weekend getaways in San Diego and Pasadena, serving together in Jr High ministry at Grace Community Church, Saturday morning waffles, and moving to Sylacauga. It was definitely an exciting year with lots of new adventures. And greater than all those things, I'm thankful for the time we got to spend learning, serving, laughing, and living as husband and wife. What an incredible blessing marriage is!
