Let the Beard Begin...

To Chase... fall and winter mean "beard season".

Our dear friend Don grew his beard out for our wedding last fall.
Don is getting married this fall.
And therefore Chase is returning the honor and growing his beard out for Don's wedding in October.
Let the beard growing begin.
To beard season.
May you end quickly.

One Year!

Has it really been one year?!...



Actually to be honest, it seems like four.
Not in a bad way by any means, it just seems like our wedding day was so long ago and that we have been married for years now.
Maybe it's because of how deep our relationship has grown since then, or maybe it's because of all that's happened in that one year.
I look back at this day and I remember how in love we were and how excited we were to be starting a life together.
And now I look at us and it amazes me how much MORE we love each other now than we even did then.
Chase is more than just my husband, he is my other half- my best friend.
I couldn't have asked for a better year, and I can't wait to see what the years to come will bring.

Weekend Get-Away

Since I work every Saturday,
Chase and I haven't really had much of a chance to spend a weekend together.
Until this weekend.
And it was wonderful.
Our one year anniversary is coming up in a couple of weeks,
and since it will be on a Sunday, and I work on Saturdays,
we saw this 3-day weekend as our only opportunity to get away for a couple of days and celebrate it.
We couldn't go too far though because my friend from college was getting married on Saturday night and I really wanted to go.
So we stayed at The Pointe at Tapatio Cliffs for two days and it was perfect.

We sat by the pool all day Saturday, on a terrace by the waterfalls...
And read our books...
Chase's choice: Dracula.
My choice: Hunger Games.
Saturday night we went to my friend's wedding.
Sunday we went to church, read, and ate all day with family.
Monday we had a BBQ and swam. And read and ate all day again.
(Are you sensing a theme yet?)

I feel bad for Chase because this was supposed to be a weekend to "us" but I ended up getting so captivated by my book (it's a real problem I have) that I probably didn't give him the amount of attention he was hoping for.
Sorry babe.
I'll be back when I finish the trilogy. Only two more to go...

Anyone have "Catching Fire" that I could borrow?
