two week re-cap

It’s been a crazy two weeks… let’s re-cap…

Traveling with the frozen piece of our wedding cake was successfully accomplished! The cake made it safely through airport security and onto the plane. I put it on ice overnight at the hotel and displayed it creatively for Pete’s arrival.    IMG_6741

He arrived early on Sunday morning and we celebrated with mimosas!

We had a lovely brunch and then took the day easy.

We didn’t want to spend a lot of money on presents for one another especially since we had me travel up to see him…however I snuck a gift in! A surprise to the hubby but for both of us!

I found a laminated world map that could be personalized! I thought it was perfect! The plan is to hang it in our future home and place pins where we’ve been, both separately and together!

The gift was perfect following along with the tradition of giving a “paper” gift for the 1st Year Anniversary!

I borrowed some tape from the hotel front desk and put it up on the wall for him to see! We can’t wait to get pinning!

That evening, we walked around “Old Montreal” and had dinner at a steakhouse! We shared a bottle of wine and enjoyed each other’s company.

Before bed we decided to follow through with the tradition of eating our cake!

Pete’s response was the best, “I’ve had better cake…” Haha!IMG_6804

It wasn’t terrible but it seemed to have absorbed moisture and so was a bit spongier than if it had been fresh.

Hope the good luck of eating our cake follows us through year #2 and beyond!

Back in the US I’ve been busy with work. I accomplished a life goal of working on a Broadway show and got to “call” the show for the first time on May14! I was very nervous and super excited! I called a few consecutive days and I am getting more comfortable each time!

It has been a busy but great two weeks! I was lucky enough to see Pete design the lights for two different opening bands in two different cities! More on that in the next post …    🙂

Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
