One Year! (yes, one of those)

This is one of those blog posts that announces an anniversary, but I couldn’t resist, it was so fun to write! I loved looking through all of the pictures from when Adam and I were dating and our wedding, so this post is pretty much written for my own happiness, but if you aren’t tired of anniversary blog posts, you are totally welcome to read it (which is why I posted it). Today, Adam and I have been married for one wonderful, glorious, and incredible year!

Here is the door where I met Adam for the first time. It was kind of like a movie (Oh, how I LOVE real life moments that are just like movie moments). When he walked in and we were introduced, he couldn't seem to take his eyes off me, he just stared at me, which was kind of weird. But how cute is that? Apparently he decided right there and then that he needed to ask me out on a date.

We met right when I had resolved that I was not going to get in any serious relationships for the next several months until I left for my mission. And then Adam showed up and the next thing I knew I had somehow gotten caught up in a serious relationship. But I was still determined to go on that mission. Actually, the first time he asked me out I said “no,” for a lot of reasons, but not because I didn't like him. Luckily he was persistent and the second time he asked I said yes and I'm kind of glad I did!

This was when Adam held my hand for the first time and I realized that I wasn't doing too well on my goal to swear off boys until my mission, but maybe that was okay.

One of our first dates: scouching (nailing skis on the bottom of a couch and riding down a snowy hill-- so much more dangerous than it sounds)
The message Adam mysteriously left at my apartment to ask me out for Valentines Day.
And we went on fun dates

One week after I had my doctors and dentist appointments for my mission papers, Adam asked me to marry him and the mission plans got postponed to when Adam and I are an older couple. We got married in the Portland, Oregon temple, about eight months after we first set eyes on each other.

And we had our reception at a beautiful rose garden

And there was a live jazz band at my wedding, which was something I had always dreamed of
Look at these dashing men in their suits! I love the colors (which is probably why I picked them)
The glorious girls who introduced me to the incredible Adam Jones, plus a few more wonderful girls
And I married this beautiful, wonderful, incredible blue-eyed, blond-haired boy who is the love of my life, which is another dream come true!

I love you with my whole heart, Adam Jones!
