Apparently my wedding dress was on-trend when I bought it (I’m watching Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on TV right now). Herminone’s dress from Slugworth’s Christmas party is like a v-neck version of my wedding dress in pink, BEAUTIFUL!

Who knew that I could be trendy? I think of myself as fairly conservative, and possibly frumpy when it comes to fashion. I prefer a boxy college t-shirt and/or hoodie and Levi’s to most other forms of clothing for everyday-wear.

Ben’s parents were in town for the week of Sukkot. There was a LOT of eating out, and Ben and his dad had a lot of time to chat about Ben’s papers that are in the cue for publication and his forthcoming thesis and defense presentation. While they were here, I feel like I ate more in8 days than I usually eat in 14!

To celebrate our anniversary Ben’s parents took us out to dinner at Jill’s, the restaurant at the St. Julien Hotel & Spa, where we were married. It was yummy! The flambé cart that they purchased for our wedding dessert is in regular rotation in the dining room with table-side bananas foster on the dessert menu (along with shrimp scampi and a table-side preparation of Caesar salad too). It was a yummy night on the town.

As soon as it gets here, I’ll publish some photos of our anniversary present to ourselves. I used a Groupon (and spent a $10 voucher I had) to buy a print of one of our wedding photos on aluminum. It should be pretty cool.

We don’t have a single wedding print framed in the house! When I had a desk I had one of our engagement photos framed on my desk, but the only wedding prints we have are in our de facto wedding album! I figured that two years later it was time to fix that.

Dang. I don’t seem to have a digital copy of the engagement photo I used to have on my desk. Here’s a paint version:

Just watch the first 28 seconds of the above video….. I’ve been working at a company that prepares briefs since Tuesday, that’s why you haven’t heard from me.

As an anniversary gift to ourselves, I got take-out sushi (which we ate in the new ATLAS building –I wish we could have turned off the noise in there) and Ben bought tickets to see Yamoto last night. AMAZING! But, like in the end of the video, the audience was quite calm. HOW!? I kept wanting to bop around and keep time with all of my body. How can people sit like statues while listening to such an enthusiastically energetic performance? Thankfully, we had seats directly in front of a pillar, so my bopping around hopefully didn’t disturb too many stoic audience members. :-D

Also, HAPPY SUKKOT to everyone!

Exactly one year ago I put on this dress (with the help of my girlfriends):
Then I met Ben in the rotunda of the St. Julien Hotel and Spa:
Then we went to our Bidekin:

taking the rabbi's talit to symbolize choosing my husband

Where we signed these documents:
And stood under this chuppah:
quilted chuppah
Where we drank wine:
Where supported by our Rabbi and our friends:
And supported by our families:
Put on our wedding bands:
Then we kissed:

the "OMG, we're married!" kiss (with our beautiful ketubah in the background)

And we realized how blessed we are (and kissed some more):
Partied a little:
Lit some bananas foster on fire:
And had lots of fun at a bar:
And ended the night hanging out alone here:

I’ve only got a few pro photos left to share with you all and it’s almost our anniversary too! I think we’re going to put off our anniversary celebrations until our Hebrew calendar anniversary (2nd of Cheshvan) on Saturday, October 29th. Hopefully we won’t feel so cash strapped that we can’t go to some hot springs either a nice weekend at a so-so motel in Glenwood Springs or a day trip to Idaho Springs. We like hot springs :), they’re warm and wet and so much fun in the evening when you can see the stars from a giant hot tub-like pool.
