Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary!

What a happy year.

We've set up a life and home together, finally spent the entire Christmas and New Year holidays together, and learned how to really get under each other's skin. But we've also really learned how to enjoy each other, too (not that it was ever a problem in the first place!). 

It's fun to think that a year ago we were surrounded by friends and family, celebrating our love for each other, eating cake and drinking champagne. Now we're alone (well, plus the cat) in our sweet little apartment that is feeling more and more 'ours' everyday. 

I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. The past year has brought about so much change for both of us, but all of it seemed "right."

Here's a glimpse of our first year as Mr. & Mrs. : 

Wedding Day

Leaving Los Angeles

Hiking just a few days before moving into our apartment. 

Moving all our stuff to Bergen.

More hiking in Bergen.

Fixing up the apartment (stage 1 of many)!

What a goof.
Our first Christmas tree

Christmas in Norway!

Potet came into our lives just in time for my birthday in January! 

We took our first "grown up" trip to Paris

Celebrating 17. mai together!

Enjoying the Norwegian summer....

...even if the water is so cold it takes your breath away and gives your husband a good laugh. (Please excuse our pale, pale bodies - it must be obvious we live in Norway!)
Our first year was a happy one. Happy Anniversary to my love!!!
