We’re in Love!
Alas, it is true! One year after agreeing to an eternity together we are still madly in love. 🙂 Our Anniversary is today but it being the Sabbath and all we celebrated last night. It was so much fun! Tim brought me flowers to my work and later picked me up to go to dinner before taking me to the ballet! Being the dork that I am I brought 4 dresses with me, which I tried on before leaving working to make the right choice. We ended up having a few extra moments to go home first before dinner and exchange gifts. With 1 year anniversary being the year of paper or clocks Tim got me a card that had a painted picture of a scene that looked almost identical to the spot he proposed after the ballet on my birthday! It was so sweet! I also had mentioned months ago that I wanted to get a new set of scriptures with my new name and ones that weren’t all beat up and highlighted to death. And what do you know, he remembered! His memory is reputedly far better than my own and I was so touched that he had remembered how much I had wanted them. I love them! For him I had made us have mini celebrations every month for our first year of marriage and made him a book full of pictures and poems of the things we had done. It was fun to see how we had grown together throughout the year. Continuing on with paper I had made some calls and got my hands on the 2006 and 2007 SLC Jazz Festival posters, which we had attended each year since we started dating and both love! It turned out so cool! We put them in frames and I have to brag, it looks fantastic on our wall! I want us to start collecting them!
Anyhow, the night continued on with an enormous dinner at Samuri where they basically served us crates of tepanyaki and sushi and even gave us free fried ice cream after finding out it was our anniversary! It was so sweet! We wrote them a thank you note and left it with our tip. Then it was onto the ballet! I was so excited because Albuquerque doesn’t have much of the things we loved to see in Salt Lake so we were both happy to have finally found something! The ballet wasn’t exactly Ballet West but it was still fun to watch. We had a passerby take a picture of us outside the theater and then we got lost downtown for an hour trying to find our way back home. Ha ha! All in all, we had such a fun night and it was so nice to have a real night out on the town. All day I was remembering when I first met Tim and called my friend to tell him I had met the perfect guy! and I was soooo nervous around him, I made a complete fool of myself, yet he still fell in love with me! Ahh, life in love is beautiful, no? 🙂
