May 3, 2008

Gary and I celebrated our one year anniversary! I pulled out my dress and wore it for dinner. Memories flooded back of how beautiful I felt and the uncomfortableness. I still love it and my favorite part is still the veil.
This shot was taken right when we walked out of the Temple. I can't really describe the feelings I felt but I know we really proud of ourselves for getting married in the right place and the right time.

This is one of Gary's favorite pictures of our wedding day. I am still getting use to it.

The weekend of our Anniversary we played all Saturday! We went to Temple square and watched all the billions of brides take pictures and walk out of the Temple. It is one of my favorite activites to do. I loved how there was tulips sprouted everywhere on the square and this picture was Gary's attempt to get me to pose by myself for the tulips. Tulips were the only flowers planted in Nauvoo when we got married and ever since then... tulips=May 3rd.

We did not have a wedding cake because I think they all taste nasty and a waste of money (my personal opinion, but they do look pretty). So we had cheesecake at our reception because that is what Gary and I love. Well, since we couldn't eat our cake we ate our cheesecake by going to the Cheesecake Factory! It was delicious and I believe we should eat there more often-not just on special occasions.

The whole day we joked about how we were leaving to Italy at night. In some way were...we stayed a night at the Anniversary Inn in Salt Lake in the Gondolla Room. Yes, the bed is a boat. The room was really unique and even had a waterfall shower(I don't remember waterfalls in Venice but it made for a nice extra). We watched The Notebook and the Celtics-we are romantics.

Breakfast was served at 10am-perfect time. I really felt like we were special guests at a castle. The cinniamon roll and cresant were great and we attempted to eat the granola yogurt mix. I was sad to leave and come back to reality---provo.

We are no longer newlyweds.
However, I still feel the same when he walks through the door after not seeing him for an hour. I am pathetic, I know. My friends tease me all the time and tell me one day I'll grow out of it and the newlywed feeling will die off.
I hope not...
