Scraps of Life

Life As a Scrapbooking Newlywed

Happy Anniversary – To ME!

on June 9, 2013

A whole year since we were married is just impossibly hard to believe. Wasn’t I just getting all of the final details together and making sure everything would run as smoothly as possible? Wasn’t I just get phone calls from the guys who had questions about where everything went despite the detailed instructions with pictures we gave them? (Read jokingly, it was funny. We were never mad)

Wasn’t I just waiting anxiously in the nursery at church watching my two flower girls play with each other, wanting nothing more than to get to Matt at the other end of that aisle?

Apparently not. We’ve been through the best summer, fall, winter and spring of my life and we did it together. We had ups and we had downs but we did it together and it flew by so quickly I can’t even find the words to describe it. It was filled with love, laughter, joy, tears, chance, silliness and many other things that this life has to offer.

To start the day off right, we each ate a small sliver of the top tier of of wedding cake that still smelled and tasted just as fresh as that day one year ago. Amazing, I tell you. Downright amazing.

We decided to celebrate by treating ourselves to dinner at the Riverfront Club in the ballpark and nicer seats that usual at the game. Originally, the game was scheduled for the afternoon but with it being a Reds versus Cardinals game, ESPN decided to make it the Sunday Night Baseball game. Clearly, the logical thing to do is make a sign saying it’s our anniversary and try to get on ESPN. Sadly, this did not happen but we did, however, make it onto the jumbotron. Matt held the sign up above our heads for every break between innings and it only took until the 8th before we were shown.


Dinner was fantastic. The Riverfront Club is a buffet that offers some pretty fancy choices at atmosphere. Calamari, beef cut specifically for you, fresh cheeses, salads, fruit, etc. Matt decided to order us an entire bottle of champagne to celebrate and it was delicious.

The only thing that would have been better was if the Reds had won. Thanks to our sign, we had all kinds of people wishing us happy anniversary and shooting smiles our way.

To rewind a little bit in the day, with our afternoon free, Matt’s brother Pat treated us to a free movie complete with popcorn and a drink. He works at this theater and when we got there, everyone behind the counter was clapping. The cutest part? It wasn’t even his idea. These coworkers of his just decided to do it on their own. Hangover 3, it’s hilarious. Stay after the credits. So worth it in every way.
