Kevin and I were honored to be a part of our good friends Mike and Samantha’s wedding this weekend in Michigan. It was also our one year wedding anniversary yesterday. I can’t believe how fast our first year of marriage flew by!
We were lucky to be able to spend the weekend celebrating with good friends and family, and able to see each other since Kevin is still in New York for work. Looking back on the last year, we’ve done so much together. It’s great to reflect back on all that we’ve accomplished and the special memories we’ve made.
In October we traveled to the British Virgin Islands for our honeymoon. It was so gorgeous there. I hope we can go back one day. My favorite part was the catamaran Kevin surprised me with for a few days of the trip.
In November we hosted Kevin’s family in Chicago for Thanksgiving and spent a week in Michigan with our families at Christmastime before heading to Chicago for New Years.
In February we traveled to Arizona for vacation, visiting Sedona and Scottsdale. Little did we know it would be our future home! Kevin was extended the opportunity for him to join the team in Scottsdale in April and we decided to jump at the chance to experience something completely new.
We traveled to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in April with my parents, Meghan, and Meghan’s friend Alyssa for some relaxation in the sun!
Over the summer Kevin and I attended a couple of weddings in Michigan before heading to our new home in Scottsdale. Kevin started his new job at his firm in July and I did some job searching and started my job at an advertising agency in Tempe in August.
It’s crazy how much has happened in the last 12 months. Our wedding day is still the best day of our lives. There are not many times in life you get to spend with all of your closest family and friends in one place. We are so lucky to have had such a beautiful wedding and a great first year of marriage. I can’t wait to see what the next year brings!
