One Year Strong

A few weeks ago my husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. Unfortunately with the chaos of moving, we weren’t able to plan a trip like we would’ve liked. Instead we decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner; we love a good meal. We had passed a restaurant a few times that boasted Steak, Seafood, and Crab. Uh, yum, yum and yum. It was probably the most expensive meal I’ve ever had, but it ranks as the best. (I’m a total foodie – even though I cringe to use that word). Appetizer, cocktail, entrees and sides, can’t forget dessert – the entire meal was excellent. They even pre-cracked the crab legs for us which I greatly appreciated as a slow eater. Most nice restaurants are great at one thing but the rest of the menu can be lackluster. Truluck’s was on point with every course. Service was good, and we were even treated to a special dessert for our anniversary. They have a number of locations in Texas and Florida. If you’re looking for a special meal, I would highly recommend trying this restaurant. (Just make sure you’re ready for the bill.)

When we got married last year we never would have imagined how different our lives would be today. It’s been an exciting year to say the least. After following a strict budget for over a year saving for our wedding and honeymoon, we were able to resume some of our favorites activities like going to concerts and the movies. We did fall into a bad routine of ordering delivery food, thanks eat24! But what can I say, wedding planning was so exhausting and after that we were spent! People ask if it feels different being married. Yes and no. Our relationship feels the same but our thought process has changed. All of a sudden it went from ‘what do I want for lunch today’ to ‘omg, we need to start saving for retirement’. (To be honest, I’m always thinking about what’s for lunch.) That may not sound fun, but it actually feels really good. We’re able to look forward and imagine what we want our lives to look like in a few years. I love you boo, and here’s to many more years.
