Our first anniversary! It’s hard to believe it’s been an entire year since we were blessed with so much love and got to celebrate with all our friends and family at Duke Chapel. We’ve decided to alternate planning the celebrations for the big day and I drew to plan this year’s. Last night we had the best meal of our lives at Canlis, one of the nicest and oldest restaurants in Seattle. Even though I called a month ago we could only get reservations for 9:15p, but it ended up being perfect since our waiter gave us a private tour of the building after most of the other guests had left.
We continued celebrating today with pimento cheese biscuits and gravy (from the cookbook my mom sent us for our “paper” gift) with mimosas and cupcakes – yum!
We didn’t save any cupcakes from our wedding (we left the next morning for our honeymoon and even if we’d been able to save them they probably would not have kept for our two week road trip across the country), but I picked up the same flavors from Trophy Cupcakes and a sparkler candle to top them off from the adorable Flourish in Greenwood.
It’s the paper anniversary, so Jeff took the wonderfully loose interpretation and got me a gift card for some much needed massages. Thanks, love! I got him some personalized, manly notecards and a journal that I decorated so we can record all the places we’ve been (27 states, 1 province and 3 countries so far!) and lived, and all the places we’d like to go.
