One Month

One month of marriage down...forever to go :)

Now, we've never been ones to celebrate monthly milestones...heck, if we are being honest I don't know if we have ever acknowledged our dating anniversary in the last 3 years...and I am almost positive neither of us know the exact date for that anyway...all we know is it was the end of July ;)
However, when we realized that our one month anniversary landed on a Tuesday...a Taco Tuesday at that...we couldn't resist the chance to celebrate :)


Our first real date was at Mi Ranchito a little over 3 years ago...I remember that date (and all the nerves that came with it) as if it were just yesterday! Who knew, that 3 years ago in a Mi Ranchito I would be on my last first date with my future husband?! I know I sure didn't! All I that I am so glad that after months of dropping not so subtle hints, I was able to finally convince AJ to ask me out on that date ;)

And here we are month into marriage, and I have to say...being married to AJ is pretty much the best :)


This month will most definitely go down as one of my most favorite (and busiest) months!

This month...

As you can see our first month of marriage was definitely a BUSY one!! While we are both exhausted pretty much all the time from all the crazy exciting times this past month, I wouldn't change a thing! And if this month is any indication of what the future holds...I think we are in for a fun ride :) Bring on month 2!
