One year later



It has been a fabulous first year of marriage.

In September, we travelled to the UK for our 2nd party and it was a blast.

In October, we celebrated Frost's birthday.

In November, I posed half naked for a knitting calendar in support of my LYS. When my grandfather passed away shortly thereafter, Frost dropped all is work commitments to drive me home to Ottawa

In December, we celebrated my birthday and then travelled back to the UK for christmas.

In January, Frost was sick for the first 10 days of our christmas holiday which meant we didn't travel much until the last few days of our trip. We ended up staying in a lovely hotel in Brighton, which was heaven.

In February, we went to California for a week as a mini honeymoon.

In March, a dear childhood friend of Frost's passed away. We were unable to travel back to the UK, for the funeral. However, I am very thankful for the beautiful painting we have from her. Which was an engagement present from her and her family.

In April, my grandmother passed away, and yet again Frost was there for comfort and support.

In May, we started looked for a house of our own, with our fabulous real estate agent.

In June, we went on a camping holiday at the beginning of the month (five days without a shower!) At the very end of the month we put an offer on a house that was definitely the one and got it, beating out 8 other bidders.

In July, we had a mini holiday at a friend's cottage in Bobcaygeon

In August, Frost put in an order to get ourselves a puppy, once we've moved our very first home.

Of course these are just some of the highs and lows of the past year. Through out all of this year, we continue to work at our respective jobs. I knit and crochet in my downtime. while Frost acquires more music now in the form of vinyl and cassette tapes. The cats keep us on our toes, and we have had great times with family and friends, old and new.

One year later, I have even more love and respect for the man I am proud to call my husband. I very much am looking forward to the next year a head of us. A new house, a new pet, a trip to italy in the spring perhaps. and of course, many more new adventures together.

What a year! Best of luck with the move. It's always fun to have a new space to settle into! Lots of work, but fun to get things the way you want them!
