One of the very best days of my life just happened to be one year ago, from this past Sunday, November 8th.  Bill and I celebrated our 1st Anniversary.  We had a wonderful weekend. We chose to stay home rather than going anywhere overnight, mostly due to the fact that we just enjoy being at home.  On Saturday we enjoyed shopping together for our gifts to each other and for our home.  We had a very nice meal of Italian Food with banana splits for dessert,  and watched a couple movies. 

On Sunday we planned a very nice romantic evening at home; including a fine dining, candlelight, 4 course meal all from the kitchen of Bill & Sherrie's place.  We brought out the china, and put on some great music that I had put together specifically for our anniversary.  Menu included:  Shrimp, Salad, BBQ Rib Eye Steak topped with saute'd mushrooms and onions (Bill makes the best, thats why I chose to eat at home), Baked Potato, Broccoli, and  Homemade Parker House Rolls; and for dessert we ate the top of our wedding cake that had been in the freezer all year.  It was just as yummy as it was on our wedding.  After dinner we danced for a bit and then we watched one of our favorite movies; The Notebook. 

On Monday, we went to breakfast and shopped at an antique store.  Later on we went on a hike up the "M" mountain. Bill prepared chinese food for dinner and then we watched our Wedding Video and an episode of Ghost Whisperer before Bill had to leave for work. 

The 1st Anniversary gifts are supposed to be centered around paper or clocks.  For our home, I purchased a couple LDS art prints of our favorite pictures by our favorite LDS Artists.  "Light of the World" by Greg Olsen and "Ye are not Forgotten" by Jon Mcnaughton.   They are matted, but need to be framed. 

My life was forever changed the day Bill and I met.  He is the greatest blessing in my life.  He is not just my husband, he is my soul mate and my best friend.  We have never been happier!  Out of darkness, I finally found my light.  My one true love.  I look forward to many, many more anniversaries with you sweetheart!

Fusion:  Where two people become one.  So close & well suited for each other that they blend together. You can't tell where one starts and the other one ends.  They merge and can't live without the other after that.
