Married one year?!

B&M_B&Ws-21 

I almost titled this post “1 year of co-habitation” but then looked up the term “co-habitation” on wikipedia. Hah. Thas not what what’s going on here.

I’m not going to try to relate how I view this passage of time, or else it could just end up as a scattered and incomprehensible explanation of time and space. If you know me, you know the frustration that comes when I attempt anything of that sort.

Let’s just say it’s been fabulous.

But let’s get right to the good stuff, pictures, yes.

We spent Saturday afternoon at the Chicago Botanical garden. Conditions could not have been any better; it had just rained and the fog was lifting right as we arrived.

Below is a Juniper bonsai which is the same kind Micah got for his birthday! We are now more dedicated to the care of our bonsai.

That evening we went out to eat and had the most amazing dinner. Mind you I am not really into meat, but I have always wanted to try fillet mignon, so I had my chance and BOY WAS IT TASTY!!

Micah was happy with his prime rib. That’s a meat-eater right there.

On Sunday, we went to church and then came home. Micah was kind enough to clean the bunny cage and the fish tank. I am, admittedly, afraid to do both those things. But seriously, look how big that bunny is.

LOOK AT THAT THING!!!!!!!!!!

We had indian food for dinner. Yay for Trader Joe’s. They’ve got some great stuff. And that is IBC root beer. Not real beer. Ha.

Micah made a special “curry sauce” to go on the chicken and it was delicious. Don’t ask for a recipe cuz he made it on the fly and he’s cool like that, yo.

The flowers and new vase bestowed upon me. And to think I got him an electronics book. Well, he loves that stuff so don’t judge me. I will support his hobbies even if he has no time to do them.
