1 Year Anniversary!

Yesterday, May 21st Ben and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary! We have had so many good memories and learning experiences this last year. It has definitely made our marriage stronger and has given us the smallest glimps of what our future has in store for us. This past WONDERFUL year we have experienced:

  1. Our first Christmas spending it together
  2. Getting our cat Chess 1 month after being married
  3. Going to Colorado to watch his sister perform in Mama Mia
  4. Many California road trips
  5. Camping up in AF canyon
  6. Staying over night at the cabin
  7. Moved into our first home in Provo
  8. Lake Powell with my family
  9. Me getting a full time job
  10. Driving up to Idaho to get our puppy Hurley for our anniversary
  11. Me chopping off my hair for my husband because he likes short hair
  12. Spending numerous nights outside watching movies on a laptop
  13. Going to Knotts Scary Farm for Halloween (Ben's FAVORITE time of year!)
  14. Tasting Indian food for the first time and falling absolutely in love with it
  15. Going to Vegas and playing the penny machines

That is just a small portion of this past year and our memories that we have created from what people would call "the hardest year of marriage," but what I would consider THE BEST!

Goodbye Apartments!

Wow it has been such crazy past few weeks! I recently got a full time job at a marketing company and I am a project manager there. Things are BUSY BUSY BUSY! It is nice being able to have a steady job that is consistent! I am always on my toes and there is never a dull moment working there. I love it though!
Aside from my new job, we have been in the process of moving! Ben's parents own a second home above the Provo Temple and for the past while he and his dad have been working so hard on clearing out the house and cleaning it up for us to be ready to move in to. It has been a lot of work considering that Ben's dad used it as a storage room!
So after all of the hard work clearing out the house, we FINALLY moved in last weekend. We aren't completely unpacked, but we are in! It will take a little while to get everything unpacked, it's exhausting!!! Anyways, we are so excited about this new adventure. Especially being in a house! We are loving it already! We are hoping to get a dog soon and I can't wait for that!
