Anniversary Fun & Long Distance Dates

So since I was busy with packing week last week and preparing for my new journey, I didn't have the opportunity to let you all know about my amazing 1 year anniversary. It was such a gorgeous weekend filled with love and a lot of food lol. Like all good anniversaries should be. Josh took me to our absolute favorite spot for dinner on Friday night, Seasons 52. That's where he took me the night we got engaged and where we tend to celebrate so many milestones in our lives. The menu changes to reflect the season and the week and each dish is 475 calories or less. It's delicious!  

The next morning I awoke to the amazing smell of delicious breakfast on the griddle. My incredible husband was cooking me banana favorite. He's beyond sweet and makes my heart melt. The pancakes were so so yummy and this only continued an already amazing weekend.

We went out to dinner to a new Mexican restaurant in our area for dinner Saturday night called Distrito. It was seriously amazing. Mexican is one of our favorite types of food so finding a new Mexican restaurant that is truly delicious was the cherry to a wonderful weekend. 

Sunday morning, our actual anniversary day, we had a sweet breakfast together and exchanged gifts. Since anniversary 1 is celebrated with paper, this is what we did for each other:

My DIY Vows Frame

I first went to Staples to print out our vows. Rereading this after a year actually brought tears to my eyes. These words are just as true today as they were a year ago and they will continue to be true for the very rest of my life. I picked up some washi tape and this frame from Target. 

Next I taped the two pieces of paper together and outlined the entire piece with the washi tape to make a border. Then I placed it in the frame. 

Josh and I handed each other gifts "wrapped" in the bags we bought them from. Are we meant for each other or what????

These are the two incredible books that Josh gave me for our anniversary. They have both been books that I've been dying to sink my teeth into and I was super excited to get them. I've already started tearing through Let's All Be Brave: Living Life with Everything You Have and I honestly can not put it down. It is so super insightful about how God is calling us to live a life that is brave, and when we step out for Him, He will always stand by us through that brave decision. I'm loving it! The second book he bought me was Breathing Room: Letting Go So You Can Fully Live and I can not wait to start this one up next!

And finally, we come to celebrating Valentine's Day long distance. Since our anniversary is only a few days before Valentine's, we tend to celebrate them together. However, we did purchase each other some really sweet cards that we opened together via Skype on the 14th. We were able to spend over an hour laughing and talking and enjoying each other's company. There are moments where technology is overwhelming but in cases like this, I am oh so happy that I can spend time seeing my adorable husband even when we are thousands of miles apart.

How do you celebrate special occasions with the people you love??


  1. Obviously we LOVE Seasons 52 and that is where we spent our Valentines. So far for our Anniversary we like to spend them on a mini get away. We really enjoy the time away.

  2. This is so cute! I love the washi tape :)
