Our Anniversary

Kanyon and I celebrated our FIRST anniversary yesterday!

There's no way that was a whole year ago. Wait, there's no way that was ONLY a year ago! How can it feel both those ways at the same time?

Our wedding was so beautiful and so fun, I wish we could go back and do it all over again. I would do a couple things different but only minor things.. like make sure I packed my makeup in MY bag after getting ready for the wedding so I won't have to call my parents crying because I wouldn't have makeup for our honeymoon. Slightly dramatic, I know, but the emotions of that day came crashing down on me at that point.

Kanyon and I went to San Antonio for our anniversary to stay at a little bed-and-breakfast called the 1908 Ayres Inn. It was perfect. We'd never stayed at a b & b before and wanted to try it out. Plus, they are sometimes nicer AND cheaper than hotels. Gotta love that combo. And we were not disappointed. Just check out the room:

Kanyon's not afraid of the camera.

The living room, parlour and dining room were all so beautiful as well. Just go check out the website if you want to see what it looks like. Our favorite part? They had a TON of DVD's to choose from for free, including lots of new releases. We watched I think about 4 and a half movies on our own flat screen in our bedroom while we were there.

While we were there, we ate out a lot off and on the RiverWalk, relaxed in the room a lot, did a little shopping, went and saw The Fighter (good, but not great), went to Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum (Kanyon's choosing..), and one of our favorite things we did was go on an "African Safari"!

There's a place called Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch a little outside San Antonio where they have African animals on a reserve!

 Thats gotta be a headache.

 Ew. I hate ostriches. They are the creepiest animals.

 They are the coolest animals!
 This picture cracks me up.

It was much cooler than the zoo. But definitely not like a real African safari. Hopefully we'll get to experience that again someday soon!

Another highlight for me.. I got my birthday present from Kanyon! New boots!

They are Anderson Bean, the brand that is Kanyon's favorite, and I've always wanted a pair. By always.. I mean since I started dating a cowboy.. I never would have thought I would ever be excited about a pair of boots when I was say.. 17. Oh, how life changes. Going home to eat more of that thawed wedding cake! Which was extremely good by the way. I was pretty surprised. Made a believer out of me!

Happy Anniversary, Kanyon. No words could express how much joy being married to you brings me.



  1. Soo sweet and great boots! I got some before we moved to Montana and I have just about worn them out. I think I want some red ones next! That might be my mid-life crisis! Love you!
