Prepare yourself for some mush. Something we had to do when we defrosted a slice of our wedding cake on our anniversary. Needless to say, the cake did not hold up, which I hope is not some sort of symbolism of our marriage. I laugh.
Jay and I celebrated one year of marital bliss Sept. 26, 2010. What can I say? He is the best husband I’ve ever had. And most likely ever will. :)
Normally Jay and I have to call a truce of some sort when it comes to buying gifts for each other. We have a tendency to try to one up the other person (competitive, anyone?). For this special occasion, we decided to go skydiving (a priceless and pricey experience), and call it a day.
But of course, Jay didn’t stop with that. Instead, with the help of the most stealthy Mrs. Captain, he gave me a beautifully hand-decorated art piece featuring our wedding invitation, save-the-date and RSVP card.
He is the best, isn’t he? And if you’re wondering who the talented artist is, she is Melanie Kozak from Punxsutawney, Pa. She spent approx. 17 hours putting this bad boy together, and I can’t tell you how special and lovely it is. So special and lovely that Jay and I had it professionally framed, and it is now hanging proudly in our home.
If you’re still with me after all that, congrats! We’re almost to the end!
I decided to go full circle and return to the place where Jay proposed to take some photos. It’s no longer our private beach since we moved, but it’s still beautiful.
