One Year!

This past Sunday, October 3, 2010 was our first anniversary! I absolutely can NOT believe it has been a year since we got married. This first year of marriage has been one of crazy transitions. Besides the transition of just being married, Ryan has quit a career type job, we have moved across the country, we have started an internship to prepare us to move to another country, and we both now have jobs with bosses who are younger than us :/ (ie: coffee shop for R, Banana Republic for K) It has definitely been an adventure so far. It seems as if this next year will be one of even more transitions! Life is fun, crazy, and a little stressful.

We decided to go here for our anniversary.

It was so fun! We don't have any flower vases and so we have flowers we have to use our pitcher, which means we then don't have a pitcher. So, we both decided to paint vases. R did a bud vase and mine is a little larger. I think I would like to do something like this on a regular basis. I loved painting and can't wait until we get to pick them up next week after they have been glazed and fired.

Wow, those baby blues make me melt. Also, check out R's cool new hat. I got it for him for our anniversary. I wasn't sure if he would like it...but he did :) I think he looks quite artsy in this pic.

I wish I could do this every week!
After we finished our pottery, we decided to go out for Mexican food. Unfortunately, most of the restaurants in downtown Lancaster close on Sunday evenings. We found a restaurant called El Rodeo and it wasn't so great. There is nothing quite like Tex-Mex, so we were a little disappointed. We hear there are some better places up here, so we have not given up hope yet.

To end our evening we decided to go to a crepe place downtown, but it was CLOSED. So we ended our night in one of our favorite places, Barnes and Noble. We enjoyed a chocolate chip cookie and also saw this guy there:

that is our friend Steve :)

It was a great night and has been an amazing year!


  1. Yeah! Happy Anniversary! So glad you guys had a good day together! xoxo

  2. Happy Anniversary guys! Sounds like a fun evening!

  3. Happy Anniversary! Glad you got to have a fun date night!

  4. For a second I thought, WOW, y'all invited to Steve to your anniversary celebration. Hahaha!!!

    Remember that time WE celebrated y'alls 3 month (I think) anniversary by buying season 2 of 24 and watching it together?!?!?! Oh the good ole days!

    Love y'all! Hope the anniversary was AMAZING! :)

  5. Happy Anniversary! I think your wedding might be the only one that made me cry (well, other than mine-ha!). The image of Ryan walking to get you is a sweet memory in my mind from that day. Glad you two had a fun date night! Also, I like the hat-Ryan does look artsy!
