Happy One Year Anniversary!

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

So, we made it to a year! We can't believe it's our one year anniversary, but the calendar doesn't lie, so it's official! Happy 1 year anniversary! :) Time has flown by and this first year has definitely been fabulous. A lot of people have told us that the first year is the hardest. If that's the truth, this whole marriage thing should be CAKE.

This year really has been great. Denise was able to get a job in town, and it was her FAVORITE year teaching thus far! She (and her team) are responsible for teaching English to 140 Hispanic babies, ages K-5. Actually, they just got their scores back and totally ROCKED it this year! (Would you expect anything less?)

Brian has also been busy & excited at work. As you know, he currently works at Law Enforcement Publications. He has been there for several years now and loves his job & management position. He has a great relationship with the owner of the company, and is preparing to branch off and be an owner! More on that later...

Other than work, we stay busy. We have great friends in the area and do a LOT of traveling for family and friends. Still no babies, but we do spend a lot of time with our precious pups, Douglas & Bailey.

And that's a quick summary of us right now!

For our one year anniversary, we decided to hit a bucket list item and cruise to Alaska! We were joined by Mom & Curt, Grandma & Grandpa Satchell, and Uncle Dave & Aunt Cathy. The whole trip was AMAZING. Of course we enjoyed spending time with our family. Other than that, Denise's favorite parts were seeing the glaciers & mountains, and learning about the history & culture of Alaska. Brian couldn't narrow down his favorite aspects of the trip. He loved it all: the sites, the food, family fun, movies under the stars, the never-setting sun, our 25 mile bike ride through Anchorage, and our endless, yet unsuccessful quest to see a moose!

Brian was so proud of the "iceberg" he fished out of the water in Juneau, AK

He couldn't decide on just one dessert...

And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
