first anniversary

One year and one day ago Jared and I were married. It was a beautiful, crisp March day in Utah. We got to celebrate with wonderful family and friends. It was perfect.

This weekend we went to Atlanta where Jared was presenting a paper at a conference. We stayed with Jared's cousin, Jonathan and his wife Kristy and their 6 beautiful kids! They were so nice and welcoming. It was really great to get to know them better. The only downside was that it was COLD! It snowed! In Georgia!

Sunday we headed back north and stayed the night in Asheville, NC. Asheville is in the western mountains of North Carolina. It is a popular spot to visit, especially in the fall when the leaves have all changed colors. Even this time of year, it was still beautiful. We stayed in a delightful Bed and Breakfast to celebrate our marriage turning one year old.

The best part was the tub!

The bed was pretty sweet too. As is the darling boy posing for this picture.

It was such a lovely weekend. We had hours to talk in the car. We got to see family. And we got to treat ourselves to a little night of luxury. I truly do love my husband more everyday. I am so blessed to be married to him. My heart is tender and full when I think of all he does for me. He showers me with love each day. I love coming home to him. He is my home.


  1. Oh my gosh you guys are so cute!
    Happy Anniversary! I'm glad you had such a good time.

  2. Looks like you had a perfect anniversary! Congrats! I've seen a few episodes of Jon+Kate, cute kids, crazy household!

  3. Oh fun! I always want to do stuff like this, but we never seem to get around to it. Way to start those traditions early on.

    Anyway, I'm pretty sure that celebrating with a babe in your belly makes it that much sweeter.

  4. You are such a beautiful couple! Happy Anniversary -what a nice trip - I'm glad you had such a good time!

    See you soon - Kellan
