1ST ANNIVERSARY

My husband is awesome. He planned a wonderful two-day anniversary celebration that was perfect, simple, and delightful. Here are some photos!

On Sunday morning he made me breakfast in bed. And had flowers for me. He gave me a card that listed an itinerary for the day. It included breakfast-in-bed, relaxing, a shopping trip to IKEA, and then an unknown event! Ryan said I was to dress up, pack an overnight bag, and that’s all! Well, we bought a new kitchen table at IKEA. Fun! And then for dinner we found ourselves (well, I found myself) at BeauRivage (where we’d had our rehearsal dinner!) for dinner!

Then after dinner, we drove west and ended up at The Orchid Inn… where we’d spent the first two nights of our honeymoon! Here’s a photo I snapped of the orchid they’d left on our bed.

After enjoying a lovely breakfast on Monday morning at The Orchid Inn, Ryan gave me a beautiful poster of the text of the entire Shakespeare play MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. So then, we trotted around Santa Barbara for a few hours looking for a frame…

Then we bought a lunch and drove over to Jalama Beach. It’s the most southerly public beach before the 101 turns east by Gaviota Beach.

Ryan was happy to see a train on our way back…

The drive along Jalama Road is beautiful…

T’was a lovely two days that my husband planned. T’was a wonderful gift. My husband is amazing!!

Here’s a photo of the cards we gave and received…

UPDATE: Here’s two more pics.  One of the kitchen table and another of the poster that Ryan got me.
