Over the weekend Jon and Melissa celebrated their First Anniversary!! I always get so excited when these dates roll around. I remember exactly how I felt that first anniversary. I was overwhelmed with a sense of accomplishment and incredibly excited for what the future held for me and my new hubby. I can only imagine what my couples are feeling when they near this important date and I hope that feel the same sense of pride and joy over what they have achieved together!
That's why I love these anniversary posts so much. In their own words, each couple has the opportunity to express just what this past year has meant to them. I hope that it not only leaves them happy after reminiscing over all the beautiful memories they shared together but with a sense of excitement of the future. Year one is simply that, one. There are SO many years of life to be shared together and to me, that is something to celebrate!!
With that I'm so excited to share all that Melissa and Jon have been up to this year, including a BIG move from our nation's capitol to the BIG APPLE!! How exciting!! But my favorite change has to be the addition of their sweet pup... I'm saving the cutest picture for last!! Enjoy!!D -- Happy anniversary! I simply cannot believe that it has been a year since your wedding!! Has time flown by for you too?
J&M --Yes! It seems like just yesterday we were planning the wedding and now here we are one year later!D -- What is your favorite memory from your wedding day?
J&M -- We loved the energy of the reception and all of the dancing thanks to our amazing band, Heartbeat Dance Band!! We also loved when we went outside during the reception to take some photos on the pier with the amazing sunset!!
D -- What has been the best thing that has happened to you as a couple since your wedding last year?
J&M -- A few weeks after our wedding we bought an amazing labradoodle puppy named Bailey:):) He has brought so much joy to our lives in the past year!!!D -- What have you learned about each other over this past year?
We learned we are both adventurous and ambitious....This is leading us to move to New York City next month to pursue new career opportunities, I can't wait!!
D -- Traveled anywhere fun?
J&M -- In May, Jon and I went on a two week road trip to northern Spain and southern France. Despite missing our flight due to a delay leaving DC (and losing our luggage!) we had a had a blast:). In a few weeks were heading to the Cayman Islands for a tropical getaway!!
D -- Any tips you can offer newlyweds for their first year of marriage?
J&M -- Yes, be sure to make a lot of time one another. Get into good routines so you have something to look forward to -i.e. date night once a week. It's so important to make time for each other!!
Seeee, I told you. How adorable!!!!
