This Sunday marks our first anniversary. In one year we threw the biggest, best party of our lives with all (most) of our favorite people in attendance. We began our days with cappuccinos and ate endless plates of pasta in Rome. We watched grapes dry before being turned into wine and tasted fresh olive oil in Frascati. We got lost while strolling the narrow streets of Ortigia, explored a castle, and attended Mass in an ancient Greek temple dating back to the 5th century BC. We stood in the ear of Dionysus in Siracusa, and saw Mt Etna from Catania. We did a pub crawl in London, tea in the Cotswolds, and walked through the halls of Oxford. We soaked up the sun in Cozumel and Mahogany Bay, and spotted a cobra in Belize City. We sipped Sazeracs and stopped to admire a “second line” in New Orleans, road tripped to the Virginia wine country, and a few months ago, embarked on our biggest adventure to date, becoming homeowners.
J, I thank my lucky stars every night for you. Can’t wait for all the adventures ahead!
