It’s Our First Year Wedding Anniversary

June 9, 2013 in I Adore What I Love >/div>
It’s June 9, 2013 which means that today I’ve been married to the love of my life for 365 days! WHOA… this year went fast!  When I think back to this exact day a year ago, I couldn’t ever imagine a more amazing weekend, from Friday night at the rehearsal dinner to getting ready with all my bridesmaids prior to the big event, to the most unbelievable wedding night a girl could ask for and finally to the delicious Sunday brunch the next day.  Every single detail was PERFECT.  Knowing that I was about to marry my best friend, my confidant, and my favorite human being on the planet, it was magical.  I just remember the end of the night and my face hurting because I had been smiling from ear to ear for over 24 hours straight!  So, as if that isn’t enough sap from me, I thought I would recap a little bit of how we’ve been celebrating in Chicago all weekend long.

On Friday night, we were about to dig into the top layer of our cake (which The Renaissance so kindly recreated for us) but after taking a few pics of it and realizing we weren’t that hungry, we decided that we were going to wait until today since it’s our actual anni.  Nonetheless, it was a fun way to kick off the weekend!


We woke up bright and early on Saturday morning and went to FliP Crêpes in the Chicago French Market.  We took part in their “Crêpes’N Brunch” class where we learned how to make crêpes and then, together, tackled the task on our own!  There were 12 other people in the class and everyone was pretty cool, which added to the experience.  It ended with a wonderful brunch where we got to fill our crêpes with pretty much anything, such as an array of marmalade flavors, fruit, cheese, and of course, nutella.  They also made fresh eggs and hash browns for us to enjoy too!  YUM!
