first year.

Hello friends and family!

We celebrated our first year of marriage this past Monday. We started the day with breakfast and coffee and then packed the car up for our eventful day. We drove about 20 minutes to a hiking area near by. We hiked up this beautiful mountain with our walking sticks and backpack full of food that Noah prepared. We stopped along the way and ate our fruit and chicken salads while watching squirrels scurry and listening to only the sound of a wood peckers peck. Being in the woods always reminds me of my childhood, building tree forts and raking the leaves off the dirt to sprinkle potpourri. Here I was all grown up with my husband and still enjoying it with the wonders of a child. When we  finally reached the top of the mountain there was a water fall, it doesn’t rain much in California so it wasn’t very big, but it was still beautiful.



We set up a blanket near the waterfall, enjoyed some delicious wine and reminisced what we were doing at that same time last year. What an incredible day it was with all our friends and family together, who knows when everyone will be together like that again. We layed in our past for a while and then as we began our hike down we dreamed of our future. What would our kids be like someday? What would there interests be? Enjoying our conversation, we wound up hiking a bit to far down the mountain and had to hike back up to get to our car!

After our hiking adventure we headed to the beach! Noah surfed with his cute wet suit on and I layed on the beach and soaked up some sun. After an hour we then headed to a sushi restaurant in the area where my parents had gotten us a gift card for. The place was beautiful and we devoured some delicious sushi! We tried sake for the first time and it was pretty good!


We came home to have our wedding cake, which by now was only a slice that had traveled with us across the country, so it wasn’t too tastey, Noah enjoyed it though! We popped some champagne and I frolicked around in my wedding dress!



It has been an amazing year, so much has happened. I’m thankful for each day we have together. thanks to all our friends and families for being along there with us this past year, love you all.
