Life: 1 year Anniversary


Last Tuesday, 7/31, was our first anniversary! We were not going to celebrate it if it was not because Star had to run back to take care of me. 🙂 Sometimes, bad things turns into good ones. 🙂

It’s incredible how fast time passes. I can still remember from star to finish our wedding day. It was a beautiful and emotional wedding, definitely one day that we’ll remember for the rest of life.

As we talked during the dinner.. we’re both amazed by how much life has changed this year. I started working a dream job, we bought a house, and we’re expecting our baby in less than two months! When we got married, we knew we wanted to start a family.. but we didn’t expect it would be so soon. We were ready to work hard to build a big family, and really glad that it was easier than we expected. We can’t be more blessed!!! Next year, things will be even more different, we’ll celebrate it with our little girl! 🙂

We went to a french restaurant called 2941 with airy, big-windowed dining room and lake view.

everything was delicious and the ambiance quiet and romantic, a perfect place to celebrate anniversaries. In fact, the table besides us was also an anniversary celebration, with their son. 🙂

Although we’ve been together for over a decade, we thought we felt already married before the formal wedding, but I think the wedding ceremony made both of us more compromise with each other. We feel more responsible for each other, and we think as a family over individual needs. Some people think that it is giving up something, for example, individuality, but actually it’s really 1+1>2 kind of thing. When I tell my friends who are not married, I’d say: The biggest difference between being single and married is that We feel no longer alone in this world! 🙂

Look our happy faces on the wedding
