Roses, Wedding Cake, Videos Games and Hydration Packs

If you could guess what this post is about based on the title you deserve an award!

I am so in love with this man! He is my best friend and a wonderful husband!

Sunday was our first anniversary! It seems kind of weird to say that we have been married a year because it went by so fast. Being married to my best friend is the greatest. Daniel and I have so much fun together and have truly enjoyed being married. One year down and eternity to go!

It sure was a lot of fun celebrating our anniversary. We went to church that morning and then headed to lunch with the in-laws at Celebration. This is the same restaurant where we held our rehearsal dinner. What a fitting place to have lunch! After lunch we headed home to exchange gifts. Daniel had given me a dozen roses on Saturday and on Sunday he gave me a CamelBack Hydration Pack. Doesn't that sound romantic? It is actually something that I wanted and will use as I train for the 3Day. Daniel was the lucky recipient of a new video game, a coffee grinder, some Starbucks coffee and a Starbucks giftcard.

Later that evening we watched our wedding video and relived our wedding day. It was so sweet and made both of us a little emotional. Our wedding day was truly the best day of my life so far! It was my very own fairy tale wedding.

We then ate some of our wedding cake that had been in Daniel's parent's freezer. I told them we would pay them rent for housing the top of our wedding cake for a year. I am sure they were happy to get rid of that thing! By the way, who came up with that tradition?
Even after spending a year in the freezer our wedding cake still tasted pretty good!

One of the neatest gifts we received for our wedding was a blessing cup and a book of blessings. The book contains prayer-rituals for families and groups and has a prayer or blessing for various holidays and special events. Daniel and I have begun the tradition of using our blessing cup to honor and to celebrate significant events. For our anniversary we shared the blessing cup with one another.
I am looking forward to many more anniversary celebrations with the love of my life! Daniel, you are such a blessing and I love you so very much!
