Anniversary Stuff

Derek and I agreed to make something for each other for our anniversary. This is what He made me: a jewelry box!

It's made out of Walnut, and the cross on top is a special African wood. I thought he did a beautiful job on it! He filled it with candy and wrote me a love note to go with it. It was a beautiful gift.

This is what I made him, if anyone was wondering.

It's one of those card deck books. On each page I thanked him for something, or wrote something that I love about him. I was worried when I gave it to him, but he really loved it! And he loved to read everything I wrote for him too!

Some anniversary pictures that we took at my parent's house (we're actually standing right in front of the place where we had the ceremony).

It was a special anniversary! It doesn't seem like it's been a year, but at the same time it feels like we've always been together.

Today I tried on my wedding dress. It still fit, thank goodness! I don't think I'm bigger than last year, even though I'm a pound or two heavier than what I weighed last year. I think it might be attributed to better muscle tone, because I know my muscles are in better shape than last year. I love that 30 Day Shred DVD!

I have a touch of the first year anniversary blues though. I think it's just because I keep thinking about how this time last year we were in Hawaii. I really need a vacation.

Honeymoon stories are coming soon!

Happy Anniversary! The box your husband made you is so pretty, and special :-) I know what you mean about the anniversary blues. I love our life together, but this time last year was so exciting and special and new. I can't help but miss it a little bit. But who knows, I could be saying the same thing next year about this year, so I'm trying to live in the moment and cherish everything :-)

Aw that sounds like a nice anniversary. :) The jewelry box is so neat...and the book of cards you made sounds totally like something I'd do. :)

That's great you still fit in your wedding dress! Although I probably still fit in mine, I don't think I'll take the chance trying it on. :)
