For our first anniversary, I was a good 8 months pregnant and in no mood to do anything except have a lovely dinner and go straight to bed. Needless to say, I planned on something a little more adventurous this year.
I surprised the Mr. with a little weekend trip to Athens. Being a former bulldog, he had wanted to get back to UGA and explore the quaint little town for a while. We stayed at a fantastic hotel and had an amazing dinner at 5 & 10, sprinkled in with some strolling through the streets of downtown.
Athens is gorgeous, especially in the fall. You’d like it.

One year ago I married my best friend. It was by far the happiest day of my life, but at the same time it’s been getting even better every day since then. I think that’s pretty much a statement of how awesome a team we make.
Thank you for being the most wonderful husband.

Section 60, #1868. One of the newer, larger sections in Arlington National Cemetery. This is where my father rests.
Before my father died, his only wish was to be buried in Arlington. This Memorial Day, CNN has a slide show featuring Section 60.
Dad’s new neighbors, so to speak, are the latest of the fallen brave. Although he didn’t die in battle, I am reminded why he had chosen to be here – it’s an honor.

A drive-by post, if you will:
The Shins were excellent on Wednesday night. I was impressed by the sound quality at my first civic center concert, too. AND they played “Australia”, which means a lot to me. Of course I didn’t have my camera (again), but took a phone photo.
I got a bunch of new photos of my niece. How can she possibly be so grown up now?
Today is the International Day of the Nacho. Guess what’s for dinner?
Lastly, tomorrow I’m picking up a sewing machine. Yes, it’s my next feat of domesticity. I was a little apprehensive at first, mostly from memories of me and my mother screaming at each other in frustration when she tried to teach me eons ago. We’ll see how round 2 goes. I’ll follow that by lunch and shopping at Super H Mart – bulgogi and ban chan here I come.
