The CFO and I celebrated our 1 year Anniversary on April 30th. Here’s a picture recap of that day and the week to follow. We started off the day with exchanging cards, a little shopping at the outlet malls, Petal Boutique and getting pedicures :). Some cheap Chinese food for lunch made the afternoon perfection.
Then, we went to E2 for dinner so we could sit directly underneath the Mint Museum where we were married. Loved the symbolism there.
After dinner, it was time to try our cake topper that had been defrosting for two days. Amy from Wow Factor Cakes did not disappoint, it was almost as good as our wedding day!
Then came the sweetest surprise of all. The CFO said NO GIFTS for our anniversary since we were going to Anguilla and that would be our gift. So, against my will, I did not buy him anything but a card. Of course, he bought me something. Not just something, the most thoughtful something I could have never even imagined myself. The first anniversary gift should be ‘paper’, and he got in contact with Erica from The Summerhouse (who did all of my branding) to create a come+together book, letterpressed on EVERY page with my logo, logo pressed on the front and the most luxurious thick paper bound inside of the book–the same paper that our wedding invitations were printed on. No detail was left undone. It was the most thoughtful gift the CFO has given me to date. I love him.
Next up, we got on a plane to Anguilla!! We almost honeymooned here, but instead decided we’d come for our anniversary the following year.
Guess what I ate for lunch..EVERY day??
Prettiest spot in the world to do some vinyasa yoga, no doubt.
After yoga class!
My favorite day in Anguilla, we went to a TINY little sand bar called Sandy Island where there is one little restaurant and pure paradise galore.
There it is, a tiny piece of heaven.
Our personal plunge pool.
Very, very fortunate indeed.
The perfect dinner spot at The Viceroy.
Our last morning on our balcony.
I did a LOT of reading right here in this spot on the trip. Not a bad place to get through Hunger Games and Fifty Shades of Grey.
Love this guy. Right before we left for the boat to take us to the airport.
Flying home…what an anniversary to remember!
