Our First Anniversary!

Mr. & Mrs. Joshua Wingerden Oct. 1st, 2006
Today, Joshua and I celebrated our one-year anniversary!!! I had no idea what it would feel like...a birthday? Christmas? Just any other day? And it turned out to be completely different than any of the above. It was simply...our day.
We both had usual days of working...him at his job, me on my website & graphic designs. We would call each other throughout the day trying to think of what we should do in the evening. Finally, it came to me. It has been such beautiful weather here (very unusual for Western New York!), so I thought it would be fun to do something outside.
We decided to have a picnic at a Mendon Ponds, a local park filled with ponds, trees, deer, and secluded areas perfect for a romantic picnic for two (plus their dog!).
I covered the picnic table with a beautiful table cloth and decorated it with candles, flowers, and vintage china...I can't resist going all out...even for picnics! All our food was purchased from Wegman' no I didn't make any of it...hehe...not one of my strengths! But we enjoyed blush wine, cheese, bread, grapes, chicken Caesar baguette sandwiches, pasta salad, and sweet n' spicy chicken wings. We even got Renoir a "gourmet" Filet Mignon meal to enjoy! We finished our evening off with delicious Old Fashioned chocolate chip cookies.
We came home and fell into our usual routine...watching TV on the couch and taking turns with the computer ;). It was a simple day. Just us. Just doing what we normally do. But it was beautiful. And I can't wait to have so many more!
