Happy 1st Anniversary to Us!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already been a year since we got married!!!

The weekend leading up to our wedding was the best weekend of our lives and our wedding day was simply perfect. Part of me would love to have a yearly reunion with all the people that made our day so special while the other part of me just wants to enjoy the day without having to plan something. 🙂 What made it so special was not just the obvious part – marrying my best friend – but also being surrounded by all the people that we love the most in the world. It meant so much to us to have everyone there to support us and celebrate with us.

So much has happened in the past year – we bought a house, bought a car, remodeled our house (and furnished it!), CJ started a new job, started working on our yard, traveled to New York to visit one of our favorite people, visited our dear friends in Northern California to meet their adorable son, went to a wedding, and so much more! We loved every minute of it and can’t wait to see what’s in store for us for the next year (and the rest of our lives!). We know it will be filled with happiness.

To celebrate our anniversary, we took last Friday off and drove up to Mendocino for a relaxing weekend. But first, we stopped to pick up our 1st anniversary wedding cake and stopped by V. Sattui. It was quite a detour but totally worth it!

We rented an adorable cottage in Little River that overlooked the ocean and spent time exploring the area. Neither of us have really been to Mendocino before (okay, so maybe CJ has when he was teeny tiny but too long ago for him to remember) so it was a lot of fun to see a new area. We went hiking around the cliffs, explored the cute little shops, and just enjoyed being together without any distractions.

Beautiful view!

Tonight, we are going out to a fondue restaurant in Livermore to celebrate more. We’ve never been to this place but hope that it’s as delicious as The Melting Pot (my favorite restaurant in the world).
