Another Anniversary!

Wow, This has been a crazy week for Anniversaries!  First mine and William's wedding anniversary, then our one year in China and yesterday (Nov. 12) was our good friends Julie and Martin's one year Wedding Anniversary!

Last year William and I landed in Nashville airport on November 9th at about 10pm. Then we took the long drive home with my mom. 

We rested for a day and tried to figure out what time zone we were in and then got back on a plane on November 11th to fly to New York. Yes. We are crazy.

Julie has been a dear friend of mine since we lived together in college, she is also Rosie's Godmother, and she was getting married. It just so happened it worked out that the date she wanted was the day after we arrived in the US so that was super awesome. There was no way we were going to miss that wedding.  So off to New York, New York we flew.  It's not like we knew what time zone we were in any way... so what was one more flight?

We had such a wonderful time. I'm still really happy we decided to go.  It was the most fun wedding I've ever been too. And what made it really really special was the fact that Me and William and Rosie, and one other person, were the only guests. It was relaxing and fun and happy and wonderful.

We started our day with breakfast and sitting around talking and laughing. Then a limo picked us up at Julie's Manhattan apartment and took us to New York City Hall.

There was a short, simple but totally sweet ceremony where we all laughed and smiled. We also doubled as Wedding Photographers so that was fun too.  Then the Limo picked us up again and we drank the most amazing champagne while we drove to a very nice restaurant for lunch.

It was such a simple and intimate day of celebrating the love of close friends and the love of Julie and Martin. It was simple and elegant and perfect.

I think my most favorite moment was when we were all walking home from lunch and a man stopped Julie to tell her how amazing she looked, and what a wonderful dress she was wearing. (He was right. She looked totally hot) I told him that it was her wedding dress and he got all excited for her and clapped his hands, took a good long look at Martin and said "And he's CUTE TOO! I would know. I'm gay."  I said "we know" and we all had a good laugh. It was such a funny typical New York moment.

William and I really enjoy New York every time we go but this trip was extra special. We spent the rest of the weekend exploring Manhattan in the early hours of the morning (we were jet lagged)  and letting Julie show us some of her favorite places.

But it was also a wonderful trip because we got to be part of a very special day of a very special friend.

So Happy Anniversary Julie and Martin. We love you very much and we are so happy that you let us be a part of your special day and a part of your lives.


  1. Awww, yay, thank you so much! :) The day was just what we'd hoped for, and so much more special because you were all there with us. Thank you for being crazy (and loving) enough to get back on a plane! We went back to Freeman's tonight for dinner (the same place we all had lunch after the wedding at City Hall) and we talked about all the things that have happened in the last year -- including my Rose tattoo, so you were there with us again in thought and spirit. We love you all so much. Thanks for sharing in our day with us.

  2. Oh yea! I was hoping you'd go back there. That place we yummy.
    I have SO many amazing pictures of your guys it was so hard to just pick a few. You guys look so good together and managed to look so photogenic that day! I think I could have posted 15 more.
    We love you very much.
