One Year

Yesterday husband and I spent the day celebrating our first year of marriage! It's so hard to believe it's been a year since that special day. Looking back it was all a blur, yet perfectly clear - it was all slow motion, but gone in the blink of an eye - truly unreal! I loved spending the day with husband and reminiscing about July 17, 2010.

We slept in and then headed up to Birmingham to do some shopping (aka, I got to pick out my one year anniversary gift - husband already got his a couple weeks ago) and just enjoying the day wandering around unknown territory.



From The Summit to downtown, we came across Vulcan Park and Museum. We had no clue it was on the route, but it was - so we stopped. We took the elevator to the top of the tower and looked out over Birmingham. 

 



We decided to take the stairs down - get in our exercise for the day. 


Then we headed into the museum. Husband loves history - me... I would never use the word love, appreciate it a bit more appropriate. So he read, I looked at pictures, and then he summed it all up for me. He's the best!


Then we hopped back on our route downtown and ended up at Five Points South. We had a late lunch at Fuego Cantina. It was pretty delicious. I meant to snap a photo of our food, but I was too hungry. 


So then we wandered a bit deeper into downtown. We found a cute little cobble-stone back road and we got out to take some pictures. There was an obnoxious number of pigeons in the road and I was encouraged to try to catch one. 


It was a great day - just the two of us, doing whatever we wanted! Expect some wedding photo reminiscing this week!

Congratulations on one year! That's so exciting!

I got so giddy when I saw Birmingham--that's where I was born and I currently live about two hours north of B-ham. I am glad to see another blogger from Alabama!

Congrats again!
XO,
Whitney

And I just saw your profile--that you're from NC. My husband's family lives near the Outer Banks--I think North Carolina is an absolutely beautiful state!

Small world!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
But please don't touch pigeons!! LOL
I used to try and catch them but when I was in Italy some strange man grabbed my hand and put corn in it and pigeons flew all over me. I got terribly sick! they carry all sorts of gross stuff...
