one BIG one

Bryce and I celebrated out first anniversary this month. How magical!!

Have you ever heard someone tell a young couple, "You've been married one year now. You made it!" I always thought it was odd when I would hear it. Now the thought of it makes a little more sense. Marriage is work! It is most certainly something Bryce and I have had to learn a lot about. And I am sure the learning will continue for years to come. But, what a fun learning experience it has been! Bryce is a wonderful person in absolutely every way! He is my very best friend and I am happy to call him mine.

It has been a big year for us. We have seen good and bad, happy and sad, and ups and downs. I graduated from USU and Bryce started. Bryce changed jobs several times. We sold my car and bought 2 different new ones. We took a lot of fun vacations. I got a really cool full time job at USU. Our families taught us a lot about life and love. We moved. The list could go on. We were lucky to have each other through it all. I cannot think of anyone I would rather spend my time with. Bryce is always lifting up those that are around him and I have learned a lot from his Christ like example.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, Bryce and I spent a couple days in Park City. It was a great little getaway.

I gave Bryce a little basket of goodies. Each one mentioned a sense and told him why/how I loved him with that sense. I found the good idea here.

I think he liked it :)

And, of course, Bryce SPOILED me! He got me an iPod Touch! I was totally surprised. He shouldn't have but I sure love it!

We brought our yummy cake topper with us! (Thanks for keeping that for us mom!)

We spent one day looking around at the Deer Valley Resort. It was a pretty fancy place!

We rode up the "funicular" to the main hotel where we found a game of chess. I had never played before but Bryce taught me what to do...

...and guess who won!

It was a wonderful time! I am gratful for a wonderful first year and look forward to an eternity more!

Saturday, November 6

Today was a beautiful Saturday in Cache Valley. I noticed the car said the outdoor temperature was a nice 59 degrees! Beautiful!

But, I am sad to say I did not take advantage of the nice weather. I went to a craft fair then went home to clean the house. Nice eh?! It was good though...our house really needed it! Bryce and I have both been so busy that our home has not been getting the attention it needs.

The day did give me something to talk about though...our new apartment! We moved into this new place about 2 months ago. We love it! It is a bigger than our old place, has washer/dryer hookups, an extra bathroom, covered parking for both of us, and is just an all around upgrade. So, here are the long anticipated pictures of our new home.

So there you have it! It is a fun little place. We are glad we found it!

Oh, and if you were wondering what Bryce was doing while I was hard at work back at the house...
