what a great year!

This weekend marked our one year wedding anniversary. It’s a weird thing. I didn’t except married life to feel much different (after all we’d  been dating for more than a decade) but I was mistaken. It’s better than I could have ever imagined. We’ve had such a great year. A few of the highlights: our unforgettable honeymoon to Greece, moving to Alki, getting pregnant, our cruise, the list goes on and on! I am so lucky. And I know it. And I’m thankful every day for my loving husband and the life we share together.

In the spirit of celebrating our wedding anniversary, I thought I’d share some photos. Our talented wedding photographer Jennifer Tai has featured our wedding on her website. The gallery is called “summer garden wedding at Hidden Meadows”.

hello 2nd trimester!

Friday marked the first day of the second trimester! I’m pretty darn excited for a couple reasons. First of all, this means my chances of miscarriage are significantly reduced. I was surprisingly cautious the first few weeks not to get too excited for fear I would be hugely disappointed. I loosened up quite a bit after we saw the heartbeat at 8 weeks via ultrasound. Now, I’m fully allowing myself to get excited (telling everyone, surfing the web for cute baby stuff, etc). The second reason I’m really excited to move into the second trimester is that I’m hoping my morning sickness will start to subside. It’s been pretty awful. I’m consistently puking 1-2 times every morning followed by a few hours of gut wrenching nausea. It’s not fun. I try not to whine about it too much, because I know nobody likes hearing about it. They say that women start to feel less tired and less nauseous around this time.  BRING IT ON, I’M READY! The third reason I’m excited is that we only have 6 months until we get to meet Baby Boots! Hooray!
