One down...

... many more to go.

Here is a snapshot of all the craziness that was our first year of marriage. There were so many new experiences and new friendships made, we are so blessed to have had such an amazing (though at times rather boring) year.
Obviously the year started with a bang...
 We headed to Rockport, MA, for our first sightseeing trip out east.
We spent the summer picking fruit with Seth and Kirsten...
and then baking delicious desserts!
In August we went whale watching,
the highlight of our summer.
We bonded with new friends on the beach.
Had a wet and dry visit with Dad and Dylan 
to celebrate my first birthday in Boston. 
Then came time to enjoy our first fall in New England,
with some apple picking and sightseeing in NH.
 Enjoyed our local colors with a hike.
Enjoyed more bonding with friends over cinnamon rolls and wings.
Dressed up like a cow couple for Halloween, trick or treated in Beacon Hill,
and went to our first BU Hockey game.
November brought our first married holiday and we hosted!
Rockband and turkey are a great combination!
We bought cross country skis in December,
what a great winter workout!
John took great Christmas photos of us.
On the beach.
In the cold.
Our first Christmas came,
and so did family!
January was uneventful, except for our belated Christmas trip back home!
February was winter road trip month. 
First was to Franconia Notch for a little skiing with Seth.
We headed to Portland, ME to check out the sites.
Nate's birthday was in March...
and he and Melanie celebrated with us! In Boston!!!
Easter was celebrated with our BU family and some beach time.
I obviously love Amit - we drove to BWW to celebrate him.
And then, all of a sudden, we're in June.
We actually survived a whole year together.
And celebrated in our favorite place, the coast.
It was so fun looking back at the pictures we've taken over the past year. We've made some great friends and memories! I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for us, so far it has included some more beach time!! (Yes, we love the ocean/beach/sun. If you are feeling jealous, come on out and visit us.) Maybe I'll even take the time to blog about more serious topics... Let me know what you want us to tell you about!

First Anniversary Weekend

Wow, we can't believe we have already been married a year! We have had so many new experiences this year, other than the whole being newly married thing, its been amazing. (I promise I'll write a post all about those adventures, but that's for another day.)

Even though our anniversary was technically yesterday, we decided to celebrate it on Saturday. We took advantage of the warm, sunny, gorgeous day and spent the afternoon lounging at the beach.
Fantastic weather...
 There were lots of jelly fish in the water...
They were probably the highlight of his beach day.
The second picture is of a dried up one. 

After we came home and got cleaned up, we headed out for our anniversary dinner. We headed to the Atlantica Restaurant in Cohasset. Amit had passed it on his bike rides and then did some research online. We ate in The Point, which was awesome. The floor to ceiling windows gave us this great view...
Amit ordered fantastic lobster and gnocchi dish, I had cod with artichoke hearts and tomatoes. His lobster was caught from a boat that was docked right outside our window. Awesome!! We were so excited to eat our food that this was the only picture I took. It doesn't look like we liked that meal at all!
On Sunday after church, we headed to one of our favorite beaches to have some lunch. Again, we were too busy eating to bother taking any pictures. At least we actually took one of the two of us.
So "Happy Anniversary" to us. We've had an awesome year and can't wait to enjoy what our second year of marriage brings. Thank you for being there supporting us through it all, we couldn't do it (or enjoy it) without our awesome family and friends!
