a year later...

Tomorrow is the vernal equinox - the first day of spring! Oh, the joy. Here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo... (quoting The Beatles)

This time of year is especially meaningful for me... as A. and I got married on the eve of the first day of spring last year - just the two of us plus eight of our nearest and dearest as witnesses, on a sunny, end-of-winter day in a beautiful winery, with the whole space to ourselves. I love that we had a quiet, intimate wedding before our "big" church wedding  (and by "big" I mean 90 people).

I never really posted our "first" wedding photos here other than the picture of the happy yellow flowers I held as my bouquet. I guess the memory was something I just wanted to hold close to my heart. But here are a few more pictures of that very special day...

This song, by the Beatles, just puts a smile on my face. And... I recently found out that Coldplay has a live version too!

Can't wait for longer spring days, and more warm sunshine! The first day of spring has always been magical for me... but even more so since March 19th, 2011.

Happy first anniversary, A... you light up my days.


officially married!
