Folks, can you believe it? It’s time to open the freezer door, grab the biggest tiny-New-York-freezer-space-sucking-box out of there, and start thawing this puppy out:
You know what that means! Yep, today is our first anniversary. Time sure does fly, doesn’t it?
One year ago today, we were partying it up New York Style to celebrate our love.
…with our nearest and dearest friends and family, all goofballs, of course…
…and with all of the Hive cheering us on, as well.
We spent the beginning of our anniversary weekend reliving our Greek honeymoon at the Greek Festival in Queens:
And are headed out to spend the night at the shore in this gorgeous bed and breakfast:
Where they have promised to give us a private showing of our wedding video in their little movie theater!
And we will be exchanging our paper-themed anniversary gifts (we’ve decided to try to stick to the traditional themes each year!). It sounds incredibly peaceful and romantic, and just the way I’d like to end a blissful first year of marriage.
When I first applied to write for Weddingbee, I thought I was just going to be blogging about cake and DIY boutonnieres. And actually, I didn’t even think I could write for beans. I had no idea that, not only would I discover a whole new love of blogging, but more importantly, I was really becoming a part of such an incredible community where I would find emotional support during the rollercoaster ride of engagement and beyond, incredible resourcefulness when my best-laid plans went awry, and a whole slew of new friends to be made, both online and in person.
So to you, Hive, I want to say thank you. Thank you for supporting us and “beeing” our friends.
I would never say goodbye because, a whole year later, I still read Weddingbee every day, and I’m sure I’ll want to pop in every now and then to share something with you all. But my time writing exhaustively about our wedding is done, and I hope you’ll come visit me over at my personal blog, Diary of a Manhattan Actress, in my Etsy shop, and on Twitter, where I continue to love crafting, am still a pretty “young-ish” (haha) wife, and I write about what it’s like to be a newlywed working actress living in the city that never sleeps.
To my unbelievably wonderful husband:
May every year be as beautiful as this one has been. May we never stop wanting to hold hands. And may we never forget the overpowering love and joy we felt on our wedding day. Our lives are truly one adventure after the next, and there’s no one I’d want by my side for all of it besides you.
Adieu for now, mes amis,
