ONE YEAR!

Spencer and I had our first anniversary on Sunday. I can't believe it, but I can't decide if that's because it's gone so fast or because it feels like we've always been married. Either way, it called for a celebration...
We kicked it off the night before with dinner at Mimi's Cafe (where we also went for our first date...thank you Mo and Adam!). It was delicious and of course, very nostalgic (and thus romantic). Sunday we had a blessed day of rest.

For dinner, we packed a picnic and went to the prettiest sunset view in all of Tucson, possibly in all the west. As fabulous of a photographer as Spencer is, these still don't quite do it justice--it was phenomenal.
Then, we came home to, of course, eat our year-old cake. I was totally expecting freezer-burned hash. Surprisingly, it was every bit as good as it was a year ago! I couldn't believe it, and I wish we had saved more for every anniversary! PLus, it was all the better since this time we could shove it in each other's faces unabashed...


Anyway, I am so grateful for this last year, which has been the coolest of my life. Marriage has not only made every thing so much mre fun, it has stretched me and helped me grow in ways I couldn't have imagined. And I am so grateful for Spencer--for his OJs, his crazy curls, his Legolas-build and speed :), his humility, his constant love for me, even his crazy food concoctions. Spence--you are the fudge to my sundae!

Happy anniversary! Sounds like a fun one. I'm glad your cake was good--ours was nasty after a year. As Adam said, "You know when you lick the inside of a freezer?" Actually no, Adam, I never have. But I can imagine that's how it would taste.
