It's been ONE whole YEAR!!!

So, Adam and I officially celebrated our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY yesterday (Aug 26th)!!! WHOOHOO! It has been such a wonderful year and we're looking forward to the many more to come. What better way to celebrate our anniversary than by starting a blog!? Ok, we did celebrate our anniversary a little more exciting than this. At the end of July, we took a trip to the Outer Banks for a long weekend. We didn't do it around our anniversary because we are actually heading to California this week (YAY Brandon and Melissa...they're getting married!). Here are a few pics from our Outerbanks trip...isn't Adam funny?! Yesterday, we did get to go out to dinner and exchange cards. Adam wrote me a cheesy poem that explains that his "paper" gift for the first anniversary will be Nutcracker Ballet tickets. What a great husband!

As far as an update of our lives in NC, we are lovin' the SOUTH! It's warm, people are hospitable, and you can park your car without putting money in a meter! Plus, southern cuisine is all over the place down here which makes me very happy! We have yet to find our favorite fajita place though (we miss
Border Cafe in Harvard Square), but we do have our favorite BBQ place (Allen & Sons), popsicle place (Locopops....YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS), and pizza place (the Mellow Mushroom), and produce place (The NC State Farmer's Market). I still cook plenty of dinners for Adam and I during the week, but we enjoy trying to restaurants every now and then.

The church plant here met for the first time on Sunday! Bridgepoint Community Church is on its way to making a difference for the Kingdom as we live life together and encourage one another to be passionate in our relationship with Christ. We are so thankful to have the Bundy family (Brian, Ashley, Cameron, and Caleb) and Mick and Stephanie Murray here with us. It will be exciting to see what God has in store!

In closing, here is your random fact of the day from Adam:
"The brain is only 2% of human body weight, but it takes 20% of total blood flow."
