An anniversary long in the making

On Saturday February 12th the Future Hubs and I celebrated our first anniversary after almost two years of dating. Yup, that’s true!

The Future Hubs and I first met and started dating in August 2007. We got along really well, but…things don’t always work out. We broke up a few weeks shy of our first anniversary. Imagine my surprise when he contacted me again just over a year ago. Getting back together wasn’t a quick and easy decision, but shortly after we started spending time together again we knew where this was going.

It has been one crazy and wonderful year so far. From first dates, to weekends in Banff, DSCN2970DSCN3254he supported me through my crazy Ironman training DSCN3706and then we got engaged!DSCN4270

To celebrate our anniversary we went out to dinner at Alloy where we had our second, second date. We shared an appetizer of prosciutto pockets stuffed with brie and roast Asian pears. I had a surf and turf of prosciutto wrapped monkfish and braised veal cheeks. FH had duck with a pomegranate reduction. We shared a decadent chocolate trio for dessert with coffee cake, pate and gelato.

While I don’t have any pictures from our lovely anniversary dinner, I can at least share what I wore with you! My brand new Sing Sweetly Party Dress from Anthropologie made its debut.

I’ve never been huge on Valentine’s Day but it was nice that Valentine’s had a bit more of a special meaning for us this year.DSCN4785How was your Valentine’s Day?

Happy 1st Anniversary!! Great story!

DH and I had a great Valentine's Day. He made me a delicious dinner-same one he made for me on our 1st Valentine's Day together! It's a tradition now.

Love your dress! I am disappointed that you didn't post a picture of you wearing it though! The headless mannequin doesn't do it justice I am sure!
