{One Year Down}

I really can not believe it has already been one year since Cam and I tied the knot. It has been one amazing, difficult, crazy, special year. We got engaged in May of 2011, got married in September, went on our honeymoon then picked up and moved to California. Whaaaa? It was really hard for me moving away from my family and friends and especially my nieces and nephews. I felt like I was so alone while Cam was at work all day. I can honestly say, one year later, that it is really starting to feel like home for us now. That scares me for several reasons, ha! If we end up moving away, it will be extremely hard to say goodbye to this beautiful place and the wonderful friends we have made. I have gotten so close to Cams family which has been a huge blessing to me having them close. Anyway, it has gotten a lot better for me, and has truly been great for Cam and I to really be forced to lean on one another out here.

Cam surprised me with the most fun weekend up at Disneyland for our anniversary. We stayed in a hotel for a couple of nights and spent the weekend up there. We found this AMAZING restaurant Fire and Ice- I highly recommend it if you're in Anaheim (there are only like 5 in the world.) We wore ourselves completely out by spending every waking moment we could at the parks. Oh, how I love Disneyland- and Oh, how Cam knows how to make me a happy girl. Usually when we go to Disney we just spend a day there and come home. This time, we had two days so we had time to see all the shows and parades. It was so much fun, we both hadn't done all of that in a long time.

I think the highlight of our trip was waking up in the middle of the night (literally like 4 AM) to a woman (we think she was African American BTW) screaming with pleasure saying some R rated things and moaning. Whaaaa? It was very.. funny, awkward, LOUD, and.. well, did I say funny? We felt like we were on the movie Just Married. If you've seen it, you know what I mean. It went on for about a half hour or longer. It was too funny.

Cam and I spent our actual anniversary night with some Beni Hana and some wedding cake.

It has been such an amazing year, and I am so grateful for you and all that you do for me and our family. Many say the 1st year is the toughest. I say, we conquered it. I know we will have hard times and trials we will have to endure- but I know we can make it through anything. I can't wait for all the many years to come.

One down, eternity to go..

"Bring it onnnnn, Willy!"
