I can't believe its already our anniversary. its definitely been an eventful year! i went down to daddy's on fri, the 12th and spent the night with them. sat morning i left claire with daddy and lisa for the weekend. this was the first time talon and i had a night together without claire, so i was really excited! we just hung out during the day and enjoyed being lazy together. we had a late lunch and drinks at the garage, which i hadn't been to since before i was pregnant. their sandwiches are sooooo good!!! that evening, we went to rojo for a light dinner and drinks. rojo is very special to us since thats where we met and talon took me there for lunch the day he proposed. after dinner, we headed to the alabama theatre. the alabama symphony orchestra performed covers of led zeppelin classics. the show was awesome! i love the symphony since i was in band, but listening to them rock out was a thrill!
now, we had all night to do whatever we wanted without worrying about getting home for a babysitter or waking up early with claire the next morning. but we still got home before midnight. ha! i guess thats a for sure sign we are getting older :) the next morning we slept in together, which was the first time since before claire was born. talon got up to make me breakfast and he would not let me come downstairs until he was done. finally, he allowed me to go downstairs for breakfast. i was completely surprised by what he had prepared. talon secretly bought us 6 sets of the wedding china we wanted and had two sets out for us to eat breakfast on. my husband is the sweetest guy i know. he started buying individual sets at a time months before and hid them at a friend's home so i would never know. since we had a private & intimate wedding, we didn't get any gifts from anyone. we picked out this china before we were ever officially engaged. and since i've always wanted wedding china, talon bought it for me. i have the best husband ever. not only for buying this beautiful china, but for everything you do for us, babe.
later on that day, we picked up claire from daddy's. it was so nice to be alone, but we always miss her terribly when she is not with us. claire's 9 month bday was also on our anniversary. thats right, without any idea we said our vows exactly 3 months to the day before our sweet baby came into this world. later that evening, we put claire to bed and pulled out our frozen wedding cake. we also had a bottle of champagne that levy's gave to us when we bought our wedding bands. so we had our delicious cake and champagne to finish off our celebration. it was definitely a love-filled weekend!
