Jon and I got engaged after four months of dating, and we’ve come to expect a bit of shock & disbelief when we explain to people that we’ve been together 5, 6, or even 7 months. Most people answer with a tactful “when you know, you know,” but others chime in about the responsibility of marriage, and the importance of being “sure.”
well, we were both sure after 4 weeks, and we’re more happy today, 1 year and 2 days later, than we’ve ever been. july 28 marked our one year anniversary since our first kiss, and we decided to spend the weekend together kayaking in Bayfield, Wisconsin.
Jon began the anniversary by sending roses to my office:
When I got off work, we drove north toward Lake Superior, and stayed at a quaint B&B in Bayfield, Wisconsin. We had a nice dinner at Wild Rice on Friday night, and then ferried to Madeline Island to go kayaking on Saturday:
After we finished kayaking, we wandered through the town hand-in-hand, exploring mom&pop shops and specialty boutiques. We had a lot of fun, and found these interesting things to entertain us:
Sunday we woke up early and went to a flower and berry farm outside the city. I intended to come home with lots of fruit for pies and muffins, but we ended up passing out fruit to hitchhikers and homeless individuals on the way home.
