October 12 was our wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and in other ways it's hard to believe that it's ONLY been a year. :P
I mean, this. This is true:
It has been one FULL and eventful year.
|Christmas in MD|
|New Year's in Chicago|

Preston's gift was really so incredibly thoughtful and clever. He got me a globe. Now, not only is this suiting since we just traveled the world AND it's made with paper, but ever since visiting my friend David in Australia, we've been obsessed with globes. David had one on his dining room table and we spent hours studying it and talking about it. The globe Preston got me is retro...I think from the 60s, so many of the countries are now changed. It was such a terrific gift and I'll treasure it forever. I just wrote him a list of 100 reasons why I love him. Hey, it was on paper and he cheated anyway!
We spent the day at the beach in Malibu where we were engaged. In typical Parisian fashion, we got some meats, cheeses, bread, and wine and had a picnic. I gotta say...I've gotten really snobby about these things since spending so much time in Europe. Your run of the mill baguette in America just does. not. compare. :P
It was a great day and I truly hope we are together for many more great days, and weeks, and years to come!!
