Mr. and Mrs. Dan and Kristi Fogle, One Year Later

Well, one year, one month and two days later...I'm a little late posting these pictures. Regardless, I wanted to share a few snapshots of our anniversary dinner at the Melting Pot. We ordered a four course fondue meal complete with a cheese course, salad, several types of meat and veggies, and a chocolate dessert fondue. Because of the way it's served in courses and you have to cook each bite before you eat it, it's a perfect place to go if you want to spend the entire evening enjoying each other's company along with good food.

Here we are at our cozy little booth. We may have slightly red teeth...
...from the Paso a Paso wine we were drinking! So yummy. Thanks to our resident wine expert who picked that one out:
Here was our first course - you can sort of see the fruit, veggies, and breads that we dipped in the cheese fondue. I should have gotten pictures of the rest of the dishes but after this first one I pretty much forgot about the camera.

It's crazy to think that a year ago on that same day we were getting married! Every couple hours throughout the entire day we would look at the clock and talk about what we were doing a year ago. I also went through all the wedding pictures again, which brought back a ton of great memories. But I definitely have to admit that it was nice to be able to sleep in, go to lunch with my dad and grandparents, and get dressed a half hour before we left - very different from last December 30th!
We've been asked a lot about what we've learned this past year...here are a few things:
1. We both feel like getting married to each other was the best decision we've ever made. (Whew!)
2. Dan is really clean. Kristi is somewhat clean.
3. Dan is really obsessive about being clean. This makes Kristi seem very messy and dirty to him.
4. After a month or two, these kinds of issues didn't come up so often anymore. The initial adjustment to living together was somewhat intense, but after a little while we've adjusted our habits to accomodate each other. For example, Dan now does most of the cleaning and Kristi makes up for it by doing all the grocery shopping and cooking.
5. Time goes really fast! Even though in some ways we feel like we've been married forever, it's so hard to believe it's really already been 13 months since our wedding.

aw, my big sister is all grown up!

Julie said...

oh yeah, also - I can tell kristi wrote this and not dan because I, personally, would rate her just a little higher on the messiness scale.

If Kristi is only "somewhat clean" or "messy" according to Dan or Julie, then I'd hate to see what my (much less, Matt's) ranking on that scale would be! Yikes!

I love you guys... Happy 1 year, 1 month and 2+ days! :)
