This Past Year in Photos!!

We will be celebrating our anniversary on June 29th this year & I could not be more excited to be celebrating my one year wedding anniversary! It has been an amazing year, especially since it was spent with this amazing man by my side. Therefore, I thought I would highlight the past year (in photos, of course)!

Right after our wedding, we left for Orlando to go on our cruise for our HONEYMOON! The cruise was our wedding present from his parents, which was AMAZING. We went on a Royal Caribbean Cruise to Coco Cay (a private Royal island) and Nassau, Bahamas. We made sure to prepay for a drink package, which meant that we ALWAYS had a drink in our hand. Dave's Aunt gave us money to go to Señor Frogs while we were in Nassau, and that's exactly what we did as soon as we got there!

Unfortunately, I jumped into a new job right after our Honeymoon and became quite busy with work, so we didn't get out much until around December, when I tried harder to make time. However, we enjoyed our (limited) time together by playing our fare share of DISCGOLF - which is one of our favorite sports to play together! If you don't know what this sport is, you are missing out for sure - go look up to see if there is a course near you and check it out - Nationwide Locations! In Huntsville alone, there are 7 courses and they just broke ground on one that will be less than a mile from our house!! (Oh & Go Pack Go) 

Once Christmas rolled around, we got lucky enough to have Dave's sister  take our Christmas photos - which resulted in these adorable Christmas cards, below. We had a great holiday season because his sister stayed in town for a whole month (she lives in California), we got to see my family, and really enjoyed our first Christmas in our house! I was lucky enough to have saved up money from my birthday and get a new CAMERA - which has been amazing to better document our life together! 

Soon after, we packed our bags to go out to Los Angeles, California to stay with his sister (MY FIRST VISIT TO CALI) to see AUBURN play in the National Championship game! Unfortunately, we didn't win the game, but it was such an amazing experience to be in the Rose Bowl stadium and be there to cheer them on! We also did a little sight seeing, and became tourists in the big city. We were only in town for just a few days, because we had to get back to work, but it was a great, once in a lifetime experience. War Eagle!

When we got back, we did our taxes and got back enough money to be able to support a new family member. We really wanted a Norwich Terrier, which are hard to find, especially in the south, and even though we would have loved to have gotten a shelter baby, we ended up going to a breeder for this little gem. As soon as we got him in our arms, we were so in love. We decided to name him Cooper because it went well with our other fur baby, Toby, and seemed to fit his personality! 
He's now 6 months old & just healed from getting fixed. He is energetic, loving, obedient, and means almost everything to us. We are such happy parents and he really brings a shiny beam of light into our household! 

Besides playing with our new fur baby, we have been hanging out with our friends and enjoying our time together.  We also got to watch my sister (only sibling) graduate from High School just a few weeks ago. We are both so proud of her, and can't wait to see her grow in the next four years at Auburn University, which is both of our Alma Mater! 

Dave really is my soul mate & I am so happy that he landed in my life a few years ago. I can't wait to spend the next 50 years with him!
