Over the weekend Jeff and I celebrated our one year anniversary. We hit an estate sale, walked around Chagrin Falls, looked for beach glass, then laid around in bed watching Bob's Burgers for the rest of the day until we were hungry enough to bike to our favorite pizza place. For some reason there were tons and tons of dogs there so we spent the insanely long wait for a few slices laughing at dogs. It was a lazy day, and it was perfect. We're both people who hate sitting still. Laying around and doing nothing is basically my idea of the most stressful day ever but I really don't think we could have done anything more relaxing for our anniversary. We even took a nap, and it was the coziest nap of my life. (I normally hate naps.) As we were laying in bed at the end of the night, both with heavy eyelids, I murmured something along the things of "I wish this day would never end".
 What girl doesn't love a man who picks her flowers and then shoves them in her face as the camera timer goes off?

Can I get sappy here for a minute? No? I don't care, going to anyway... I love this dude. 2014 was a crazy year for me, a life changer for sure. I met Jeff right after moving to Cleveland and he has been my rock ever since. He's the best friend I always dreamed of having and the very best travel partner I could imagine. He's introduced me to more new things that I can even begin to name and is always encouraging me to push myself out of my comfort zone. He's super with Klaus and the cats which just melts my heart (Guess that's my brain saying "Oh hey, he's probably going to be good with kids." Ohhh, and he looks gooood holding babies!) I adore his family which is such a huge deal! He makes me feel safe. Being with him is being home, no matter where we are. Plus he's the one responsible for getting me on a bike and that alone is worth something, eh? Hehe!

Here's to many more years of adventures with this dude!
xoxo

  10. I was just telling my husband and friend (who also follow your blog) that you seem incredibly happy. You're just glowing and so radiant. I remember you were dating someone named...Kevin or something (he had glasses and longer hair) and idk, something seemed off. You can just TELL you're happier in these photos. The way you write about him and the way you look at each other in photos. You two are meant to be and I can't wait to see where your relationship takes you. :)

  24. Congrats on your one year!! Its always an exciting time in a relationship when you've reached the one year mark. My husband and I have been together for 6 years this August and we'll be celebrating our 3 years of marriage next week. It still feels like I just met him which means the butterflies are usually out in full force.

    PS I love that dress!

  40. Big big big congratulations guys in your anniversary! You make wonderful partners, not just your stares in the pics are lovely but your words perfectly describe this magical connection that doesn't happen often yet somehow seem just natural. The furry ones loooving him is another signal of the magical connection, I bet ;) Pizza for anniversary, big yes! :) and you made me smile with the "I hate naps" I'm the same with them, can't stand a "super lazy" day because it doesn't relax me at all. Btw, Jeff style gets a big thumbs up! Love the t-shirt and red boots.
