Paper Anniversary...

Our frozen Cake topper, not as pretty as the real cake but just as tasty!

This weekend Patrick and I celebrated our one year anniversary with a relaxing weekend getaway to his parents house. Some people might think I'm crazy for wanting to spend our anniversary with my in-laws, but they have an amazing house out in the country, no cell phone reception and Mrs. Rice (my m-i-l) waits on us hand and foot... needless to say sooooo relaxing. I just can't believe that it has been a whole year since Patrick and I got married. Some people say that getting married is the happiest day of your life, but I feel so blessed because everyday I wake up next to Patrick is happier than the day before.
When I look back at the last year I get choked up because so much has changed, we moved to a tiny apartment in Jasper on the third floor of a house with no washing machine and limited heat, then we got a puppy, then we bought a new house, struggled with some on going health problems and in the mean time we have been really focusing on trying to start our own family. We have had some ups and downs, but i am soo fortunate that the ups far out number the downs.Remembering my wedding day is still pretty easy for me, I've heard over time that the details start to become fuzzy. However my photographer did an amazing job so I'll always have so photo reminders of the day. I thought i'd share some of my favorites from the wedding...

My flowers, my mom and I searched antique stores for the Sapphire broach.
Something old & Something blue.

My shoes, anyone who knows me knows I live in flats and my wedding day was no exception. My dad's wonderful girlfriend got me the clips to dress up the shoes.
