First Anniversary!

Sorry that it has taken me so long to post anything! We made it through our first Chicago winter (hopefully it is over!). Lauren and Andrew King came up to visit us in January. We had a great weekend with them. We wish they would come visit again soon. We had Missy and Andrew's wedding at the end of February. What a fun wedding weekend!! From the texas style rehearsal dinner to the bridesmaid luncheon at belle meade and finally the beautiful wedding...everything was absolutely perfect. We were so happy to be a part of the celebration! Then jonathan and i were able to go to Orlando to see julie, stephen, ellie and kathryn for his spring break. it was a much needed break for both of us and we had such a great time. i'll post some pictures from the trip soon!
Two weeks ago we celebrated jonathan birthday. we went to eat at yoshi's cafe in our neighborhood..which was delicious, and then we went to see Andrew Bird at the oprea house. the concert was great. He is probably one of the most talented musicians i have heard lately!

and today we celebrated our one year anniversary!! Actually we have been celebrating since yesterday when jonathan surprised me with reservations for dinner downtown at Catch 35 and then a room at the Sofitel hotel!! Dinner was delicious and it was so fun to stay downtown at the Sofitel. Then tonight he surprised me again with tickets to see Mary Poppins! We just got home from the show and it was so entertaining..it was great!! i don't want this weekend to end!!
it is crazy that a year ago today we were getting married at rosemary beach. This year has gone by so fast! so much has happened this year and it has been an amazing blessing to have jonathan as my husband and to share our lives together. i am truly blessed by him every single day. today has been a very special day for us and we have been able to reflect on the wedding and all of our friends and family that surrounded us as we were married a year ago. we love you all dearly and can't thank you enough for your love, prayers, and support this year.
last year...
