A Year in Review
It’s true what they say about time flying. A year ago this weekend Alex and I celebrated our wedding with a small group of family and friends (and Henry and Albert) in Lake Placid, NY. It was (as any bride will say about her wedding) pretty much perfect.
I can hardly believe that it has been a full year! I’ll take this as a good sign. In these past 12 months Alex and I have moved and decorated, we’re in the midst of a renovation (our bedroom with me 7 months pregnant, of course) we have a sick dog, and I’ve been pregnant 7 of these 12 blissful months. We must be doing something right! I’m going to throw the credit to my husband for putting up with me with a smile on his face.
This weekend we had planned to return to the Lake Placid Lodge, in Lake Placid to celebrate our one year anniversary. We’d hoped to do it every year. Unfortunately, between me being pregnant (my Dr. asked how long it would take me to get to a hospital is there was an emergency and the conversation ended there) and Henry being ill, we had to make a change to our plans. Traveling with the restrictions of having to be able to drive (dogs) and finding a romantic place (anniversary) where they would allow dogs (three) is nearly impossible. Luckily for us, I think we’ve found the perfect spot!
Tomorrow afternoon we’re heading up the California coast to a romantic little rustic retreat on the ocean called Manka’s Iverness Lodge. It sure looks perfect but, I’ll have to let you know. We’re looking forward to our cabin on the water and letting the dogs swim, chase seals, and getting nice and muddy. There’s nothing more romantic than that.
There’s no question in my mind, despite Henry falling ill, that I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. We have a beautiful and happy little family that’s growing and changing by the minute. I guess that’s what happens when you marry the man of your dreams.
