If you follow the blog, then you saw this post, and if you follow DBK on Instagram or Facebook, then you know as well. Yesterday was our first anniversary! In keeping with a typical Monday post for the blog, I wanted to share a quote, this one, not so motivational or inspirational, but sentimental.
These words are from an E. E. Cummings poem that P’s sister read as part of our ceremony, and I love every single line of the poem, though this is just an excerpt. (The graphic background color is Benjamin Moore’s Summer Plum–our wedding colors were plum and sunflower yellow!)
We had planned on going camping this weekend and taking Brantley with us to go hiking and soak up the foliage and scenic views, but Joaquin was supposedly coming and we decided that we better not take the chance of having a muddy camping experience. Instead, we stayed home!
I think it was a great decision, we got a few things done around the house that have been on the list for far too long, had brunch with some good friends, and went out for an amazing dinner last night in downtown Jersey City at VU with amazing service that celebrated our anniversary and really made it a special night, soaking up stunning skyline views of Manhattan. Then today, I made a delicious breakfast and then we found a great park with a hiking loop and still got to take Brantley for a good long hike–I think he will sleep for days.
All in all, it was so much fun reminiscing about our wedding day and all of the amazing memories that we have made in the year since. I can’t wait to see what this next year holds for us!
And, for those of you who are wondering what we ended up exchanging for the traditional first anniversary gifts? P got me the Kate Spade, Little Gold Book notebook, and I got him a personalized leather bound writers journal with a little note inscribed for motivation every time he opens it.
How was everyone’s weekend? Did you all stay dry from whatever storm was passing and get to enjoy this crisp fall air? I think later this week I’m going to make a fall bucket list, there’s a tag for this that has been floating around Instagram, and I think I’ve gotta join in on the fun! What things should I be sure to add to the list for this season?
