1st Year Anniversary

So Erik and I just recently celebrated our 1st year anniversary. I have been reflecting this last month about our first year of marriage, and how lucky I am to have him. I am so grateful to God that he chose me. He is such a wonderful husband, and every day I grow to love him more and more. He has made me so happy that I can honestly say this is the happiest I have ever been. It has been a wonderful first year with a lot of fun memories and times spent together. Here are a few pictures from our many adventures together.

Erik and I camping with some friends up in American fork canyon

Erik trying to scare away the bears. I think he has watched the parent trap one too many times. He was paranoid about getting eaten by bears the whole trip, so we teased him relentlessly.

Waiting in line to ride the Tea Cups at Disneyland. Mouse ears are a must!

Erik and I outside of California adventure.

We decided to Disco it up for halloween. Erik told everyone he was Disco Stu, but I know his real identity;)

More Halloween fun at the local swing venue's annual Halloween Dance

Disco skating with my disco stud

Carving pumpkins after disco skating with friends. On display is my very un-artistic bat pumkin.
Erik and I after my graduation ceremony. I am showing him my appreciation for his support through graduate school;)

Erik at his graduation ceremony from BYU. He graduated with a degree in computer animation in December. Turns out he could have graduated in April the year before. He went to take his last class last fall, and his advisor waived it, since he had already done a similar course at Ricks. Haha, if he had only known.

Erik and I at my pinning ceremony. This banquet marks the end of my three years in the occupational therapy program at the U.

Watching the sunset at the Great Salt Lake with my family.

Erik and I on our way to the pool during our vacation to Vegas. We all know what Erik wants to say, "I can't help it if I am ridiculously ridiculously good looking. " I believe he calls this look LaTigra.

Erik with his new Gary Fisher Mountain Bike. I got one a week later, and now we ride them everywhere! We especially love riding up city creek canyon. It is a ride we do quite often.

Erik and I canoing with some friends at Deer Creek Reservoir. We were very tired by the end of the day, but it was a lot of fun.

Djing at The Skillet (Salt Lakes Local Swing Venue) last month.

Erik getting his groove on while I DJ the music.

Rock climbing at a local rock climbing Gym. It is amazing how large my butt looks from this angle.

Erik doing what he does best. He used to have a membership to the quarry, and has spent many years climbing with his cousins. He is way more experienced at this than I am. We just bought harnesses though and will be going quite regularly.

Erik at the Wal-Mart in Hawaii. This is his favorite place, so we make trips there quite often. He loves to peruse the DVD section, in order to find new additions for his 300 plus DVD collection. Of course this was one of the first places he located when we got to Maui. He makes me laugh.

Erik and I near the beach during a Luau we attended in Maui, while on our honeymoon. It was a perfect night.

Enjoying the beautiful scenery before the sun goes down.

Erik standing on the shore. I really like this picture.

I loved looking at your first year! That was great! I'll have to steal this idea when we hit our anniversary this coming year.

Doesn't the first year just fly by? And at the same time it seems like you've been married forever? Gotta love being married!
