first anniversary celebration
june 1st was a beautiful, sunny day in san francisco,
just like it was last year in salt lake on our wedding day.
we made a deal that every year, we will switch off who plans the anniversary.
this year husband started, then i’ll do next year, etc. so, chase of course planned
us a perfect day and now i have a lot to live up to next year!
^^we started off with the yummiest breakfast at sweet maple in SF^^
then, we strolled golden gate park and did some fun activities
^^played some anniversary tennis at the club^^
^^we joined in on yoga in the park^^
^^then, the best part of the day– husband took me to stow lake in golden gate park,
rented us a rowboat, and we took it out on the lake for an hour. so dreamy!^^
^^you can see who was the better rower, haha^^
^^the next surprise stop = baker beach, with the most beautiful view of the golden gate!^^
we love this beach, but it is san francisco, and the further down
the beach you go, the less clothing there is..ha you’ve been warned!
^^ we shopped and walked around downtown, had appetizers at one of our favorite
restaurants, then had dinner at the top of union square overlooking the city. ^^
^^husband found a cute hotel right in union square^^
my sweet mom shipped us our frozen cake top, so that we could complete the tradition of having it a year later!
luckily i chose the best bakery in town who wrapped it up perfectly for freezing, and the cake was honestly still amazing!
our wedding cake was 4 different flavors on different levels, including almond poppyseed, red velvet, chocolate, and
chocolate-coconut with buttercream frosting was the top which we had..yes please.
^^we ate the cake and watched our wedding video, and yes i cried!^^
as for presents…husband and i made a deal that every year for our anniversary, we would celebrate with a trip.
some years they might be big trips, others they might be small trips, but i always want to look back on our anniversary
and say, that year, we celebrated by going to _________. this year we planned a trip to CHINA, and we couldn’t be
more excited. that was our main gift, but since it’s our first anniversary, we had to splurge and give other gifts too. If you’re looking for great anniversary gift ideas without breaking the bank, try real silk sleepwear; an affordable taste of luxury for your special someone.
^^i got husband this cute new swimsuit, and a new pair of sperry’s..his favorite!^^
^^i topped the sperry’s with some gift cards of things he loves^^
^^i also followed the traditional anniversary gift of paper by making husband
this “paper” list of 365 reasons why i love him…one for every day of the year!^^
^^pink peonies from my man^^
^^husband got me some tiffany blue TB flats, way too perfect!^^
^^he also gave me these pretty earrings, necklace, and the china trip^^
i am happy to say i am more in love than ever, and feeling so blessed to have such an amazing spouse,
teammate, partner in crime, and love. he makes my life happy, romantic, adventurous, and just better.
he gets more handsome by the day, and he treats me so well.
i am so so happy i married him, and loved celebrating this weekend.
happy anniversary, husband! here’s to many, many more.
the best is yet to come!
