1 Year Anniversary; 5 Month Birthday

April 2009: 5 months old

Well, we did it guys. John and I have made it through one year of marital bliss. I've heard from numerous married folk that the first year is the hardest, if that's true then we have some amazing years ahead of us :0) but I find that hard to believe because isn't that supposed to be the honeymoon phase? Regardless, I can't really call it very honeymoon like because during that year I spent 4 months throwing up, went through 2 major abdominal surgeries with two and half months of recovery time, boiled my eyeball (long story and not a happy one LOL), and have spent two weeks in the hospital... so maybe this year was a little harder than most, but it wasn't because of the marriage by any means. In fact I got through it all with nothing but optimism and positivity because I had John by my side through this roller coaster of a year. In the end it was all worth it to have this amazing little girl. No matter how hard it is or gets it's still a beautiful life.

Back from our coffee date

Our anniversary was perfect. We chillaxed at home for a while playing with Bailey, showering her with attention and affection since it also marked her five month birthday. My sister, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew came over and we all ate a delicious steak dinner that John grilled for us. We defrosted the top tier of our wedding cake to eat as tradition on our special day. I have to admit I was a little hesitant at first about eating something that had been in our freezer for a year, but it's tradition and it really didn't taste bad after all *whew*! Then we finished up the night with Candi and Bella babysitting Bailey as John and I headed to Cafe Brazil for a bottomless cup of the yummiest coffee bar ever. On our coffee date we reflected on how blessed we are, what this past year was all about, and what our future would have in store for us. John was sweating it all week wondering if I would be disappointed with such a relaxed day, but I really enjoyed every minute of it, especially the part where we got to venture out without the baby for the first time thanks to Sissy! In conclusion we are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together, and wondering about all the things we will have to be thankful for next anniversary :)

    Thanks guys :) I prefer comfort and good conversation as a date above most options. Way better than going to a movie or something.
