One Year Down.

Our first anniversary was a huge success! 
The boy surprised me with the sweetest gifts and I don't think they'll ever be topped.

I walked into the bedroom to find tons of Polaroids ( 99 to be exact) from our entire relationship strung around the room!

I would have been perfectly pleased with that but he had to go and out do himself with a book of our  love story complete with cute stick figures depicting our first meeting to dates and our wedding. I'll be dedicating a whole post to the book soon because it is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. All of the small details he put into it are just the best!

I felt a little silly giving him my gift after this but he still loved it :)

We spent the day relaxing at Glen Ivy Hot Springs. Lounging by the pools and getting a aloe vera moisturizing treatment in The Grotto. I don't know if I'm a fan of all those fancy spa treatments. I felt a bit awkward. They send you down in an elevator to a dark cave area where we were met by two girls who "painted" the concoction on us. I use "painted" loosely because they kinda just slop it on all over you. After that you head to another part of the cave to let it soak in and its like a million degrees in there. I couldn't last the whole 10 minutes because I thought I was going to die. After that you head to these little cave like showers to wash off. Let me tell you, that was no easy task! Imagine being covered in tons of the thickest lotion ever and trying to rinse off. Next you enter the last part of the cave where it is cool and quiet and you're supposed to relax with tea and a crisp apple. I left feeling a bit puzzled but Tim couldn't stop talking about how refreshed and soft he felt. 

After that we took a dip in the pool and were having a great time till Tim stops mid sentence and orders me to go under water...After telling me several times I finally do but just a second too late because the bee that was on my shoulder already decided to make me his victim. My husband came to the rescue and pulled the stinger out quickly. We decided to get out and dry off thinking this was a sign it was time to head home and I see a low flying bird heading towards me in slow motion already starting his business and it lands right on my foot. Okay, now that's the sign we need to head home.

After a lovely dinner and picking up the fur kid from Grandma and Grandpas we went home to our partially defrosted wedding cake. It actually wasn't as bad as I was expecting. We took a couple bites and called it a night.

 All in all it was a very successful first anniversary!
