Our 1 Year {almost} Anniversary

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed a great weekend. Frank and I celebrated our 1 Year Anniversary a few weeks early! We decided to celebrate early in order to save some money on our room since the prices at the shore increase dramatically after memorial day. Also, since my sister will be graduating and I will be graduating (yay!) soon, our schedule is going to be packed! So, we decided to head to Spring Lake, NJ a few weeks before our 1 year to celebrate almost 1 whole year being married. The best {almost} 1 year  of my life! 

We tried to re-create a few of our wedding details to bring back some sweet memories and get some quality rest and relaxation together. 

We stayed at The Breakers on the Ocean, our reception site, in a room with a fantastic view of the beach. 

Since it was pretty warm and sunny Saturday, we spent some time relaxing on the beach reading and soaking in the sun, the sound of the waves and the salty air. Nothing better if you ask me. 

Can't believe almost a year ago this gazebo looked like this:

Can't believe those rocks were once a part of these pictures:

Then, for dinner, we went to The Wharfside, where we had our rehearsal dinner. 

My favorite, New England clam chowder. Not as good as real clam "chowdah" from Boston, but pretty good.

We sat on the porch with this gorgeous view!

I ordered 1/2 a lobster and grilled shrimp. Frank had crab-stuffed shrimp. 

After dinner we enjoyed my aunt's home made red wine--what we gave out at our wedding for our favors.
We also ordered a small cake from the bakery that made our wedding cake. We got the same flavor that we had for our wedding since our cake top was destroyed when it defrosted during Sandy. 

Best cake ever. Red velvet with cannoli cream filling and fresh strawberries with butter-cream frosting.

So delicious!
