Today is a momentous day, because exactly one year ago, my husband Casey and I got married. :)

Yay, anniversaries! It's only our first one, but I think I like them. :)

We decided to celebrate yesterday and went out for the fanciest breakfast I've ever had...

Of course we needed a silly self portrait to begin the morning. I love that our self-portaits are always back focused. Note to self: GROW LONGER ARMS.

So we ended up at our favorite (and overpriced) breakfast place, Jeannine's on Figueroa. It's definitely our little treat to ourselves once every few months and we decided to get dressed up and get a late breakfast together to celebrate instead of doing the typical "going out to dinner" thing...

Case got some nice champagne to go with his breakfast and I got a Bellini (Champgne and peach nectar) to go with mine. SOOO yummy.

Omelet Capresse with basil, cherry tomatoes and goat cheese. It was definitely way too rich and I only finished half of it. But it's pretty, right?

Afterwards we walked around the little paseo outside and enjoyed the sunshine. Then off to the bookstore to read for a little while. It was so nice to not have anywhere to be...

After a day of laying around the house, watching movies, and going to see "UP" in 3D at the Arlington with our friend Kate (which was FABULOUS, by the way) we took the top layer of our cake out of the freezer to see if it was still intact... I was skeptical, but it actually tastes fine? If we die of food poisoning in the next week or so, you guys will know what happened. :)

Sigh. Such a great day. And now, I'm going to have to get all gushy, so all you others out there in blog land should tune out. This is my "barf alert" to you. :)

Case, I'm so glad I married you. You are my hero and my other half. I can't wait to spend all of our anniversaries together. I'm so privileged to be your wife, and I love you. <3

A big, BIG congratulations to you guys! You two are indeed perfect for each other, in every sense of the word...and you've made it to the first year of many many years, I'm sure. Really happy for you! Blessings!

You two are wonderful. I miss you both, and it's wonderful to be allowed into your "year 1" celebration. Thanks for your photos, Lara. You're absolutely lovely and outrageously talented. Casey is a blessed man. And Casey, thanks for being a stud that the manly half of mankind can look up to. I miss you, brother. And our theatrical escapades.

Love to you both from San Fran.

PS. I can't BELIEVE you saved your cake for a YEAR! Oddly sentimental and symbolic, kind of beautiful, but definitely bizarre. (or am I displaying my gross lack of wedding knowledge at the moment? Do all couples do this?)
