happy ONE year anniversary!

we're no longer newlyweds --- we celebrated our first year anniversary in june! we had such a great first year as a married couple. it went by extremely fast! we had a ton of fun. of course, like many other couples, we also had our share of arguments & disagreements. actually those arguments & disagreements made us closer to each other. i asked bryan what he wanted to do for our anniversary, but we didn't end up planning anything...so i thought...Bryan planned the whole weekend to surprise me! all i was told was what to pack. we were able to spend our weekend on the eastern shore in cape charles, va. the weather was beautiful and the company was amazing. 

we stayed at the cozy cape charles house bed & breakfast (www.capecharleshouse.com) definitely a must! neither one of us had ever stayed at a bed & breakfast before. we LOVED it! it was so quaint and the owners were oh so sweet. 

we first ventured to the beach (because everyone know's that's my kinda place to be!) the water was still, so we were able to wade in the water for a little bit. while at the beach we strolled down by the water looking for shells. after our beach adventure we celebrated our anniversary with a delicious dinner at the aqua restaurant. aqua overlooks the chesapeake bay, so we were able to watch the sunset too. the funny thing is I wore the same dress the night before our anniversary that i wore for our dress rehearsal the night before our wedding & i didn't even realize it! 

when we were finished with dinner we headed back to the cape charles house where wine, cheese, & crackers awaited us. there was also large strawberries dipped in chocolate. yum!! 

i got some beautiful diamond earrings for our anniversary! i actually lost the first pair that i owned when we were in canada one year. i was wakeboarding & one fell out. bryan knew that i had been wanting some new ones for a while. he did a great job for sure! i also got a massage & facial gift certificate which i have yet to use...i think it's about time i do! 

we had such a great time away. i always want to make the time to go somewhere for our future anniversary's even when the kiddies come along...next year i'm hoping for somewhere further away! hmmm...maybe hawaii...capri...lots of choices. 

such a beautiful place...the couple who owns the b&b actually came to cape charles for their anniversary & ended up buying this house! they say that a lot of people have come & bought property there....funny thing was when we arrived we said, "maybe we'll just buy a house here since we can't find one around us." 
new 2nd hole earrings --- diamonds are a girls best friend!

beach time with my love! 
my love. my world. 

seriously the biggest strawberries I've ever seen! very sweet!
