One Year.

It's been one year since the best day of our lives. April 21, 2012.

So, if I could sum up our first year in a few words?

Joy. Frustration. Growing Pains. Excitement. Change. Moves. Love. Dates. Love. Love. Love.

Aside from the normal ups and downs I believe all couples experience, our first year was pretty darn good! 

We decided on a low key celebration. Darren made all the plans. As a planner, usually I'd want to be the one in charge...but I loved the thoughtfulness of his idea so much-I wouldn't have had it any other way. 

Anniversary day started with church and Sunday School. It was a Sunday after all. Then we went to the grocery store and picked items out for lunch. We came home, packed our lunch, packed up Coco, and headed to the park by the lake for a picnic. We had a great time on a blanket right by the water with our lunch, our love, and of course, Coco. We enjoyed a few hours there in that spot, then decided to walk around. We checked out the doc and the trail. Coco was of course thrilled to come along! 

For dinner we got dolled up and went to a spot that Darren picked out-Copper. It's a lovely Indian cuisine place in Charlotte. It was very romantic, and the food was so delicious! Especially dessert. We got a sampler that they offered (me a sampler? Surprise right?) with a chocolate molten cake and then two little Indian desserts...they were SO good. I think about those desserts every day to this day. YUM. Time to go back! 

We really had a great day. We've been looking into finally planning a getaway. We haven't found the perfect time and place yet, but we are still looking. We finally got our passports, so that is a start! 

I am looking forward to the next thousand or so years with this guy. I love him. 

Are your picnics this fancy?
