Our First Anniversary!

It's hard to believe a year ago we were getting married on the beach in Jamaica!

Yes, more amazing flowers were delivered to my work. I just love this combo.. I only wish they weren't quite so fragrant.

As much as I would have enjoyed going back to Jamaica to celebrate we are waiting until our 5 year to do that so this year we celebrated with an amazing local night out.

We went to one of our favorite restaurants, a Brazilian grill where delectable meats and seafood are served on the skewers in a continuous table side service style called "rodizio". Basically you have a coin on your table and you flip it when you want waiters to parade to your table with different various cuts of beef, pork, lamb, and chicken all skewered which were slow roasted over a wood fired grill. They have a huge side bar that you can visit as much as you want for things like the most delicious mashed potatoes you've ever tasted, veggies, salads, Brazilian beans, breads, soups, and on and on. Needless to say we were stuffed when it came time to eat a bite of cake (made by the same person that made our wedding reception cake).

We tried the restaurant piña coladas but they were nothing like the creamy sweet piña coladas we had in Jamaica. So, for or the first time we attempted to make some of our own using the coconut rum we brought back. They ended up great!

What a great day, what a great year! I love my husband more and more with each passing day, he is truly a gift from God.
