{year one}

oh. my. word. this first year of marriage has flown by!
we look back and think of all of the fun and incredible things we've done:
honeymooned in Antigua
went to HHI
lake trip
I started my first job as a special ed. teacher
many VOLS football games
vacationed in Naples, FL
diagnosed and treated melanoma
dale graduated from undergrad
dale got in to MEDICAL school
we got a puppy
wrecked my car
moved out of our first teeny apartment
got our first home

The Sharpe Family!
We have seen and accomplished so much in our first year of marriage and have enjoyed every minute of it. "They" say that the first year is the hardest but if that's true then bring on the next 50+ years.

I finally got to wear my wedding perfume again!
For our 1st Anniversary we decided to make it pretty low key since a) cannot do anything too extravagant because we have Mr. Polo and b) it was father's day and Dale's dad was in town!!

 Dale's aunt gave us a very nice bottle of Cabernet when we got married and said to save it for our first anniversary. It was hard because we loovee cab. but we did it! We took our anniversary cake, some wine glasses, our bottle of wine, a quilt, and a candle to a park by the river. We laid it all out and just enjoyed each others company while the sun set. After the sun set, we laid under the stars and watched hundreds or thousands of lightning bugs light up the field! It was beautiful and I would not change it for the world! 
Picnic by the river
Monday night, we went to a nice restaurant in West Knox. to enjoy yummy food and each other's company. 
I love my handsome husband!


  1. Happy first Anniversary! I LOVE the photo of your family! It's so cute. Polo is just the cutest furball. Isn't it crazy how fast the time when you get married? It looks like you had a great time celebrating.

  2. Happy Anniversary!! Keep having fun with your hubby and keep living life as newlyweds :) Before you know it, you'll be having BABIES ;)
