1 year!

Even though it happened a year ago, we still remember it like it was yesterday! Sometimes I wonder where the entire year went -- it seems like it just slipped by so fast. I guess time just goes quickly when you're loving every minute of it :) But when I look back, I realize that we've really done a lot this year, and have been A LOT of places. It's been such a fun adventure!

We decided to start a fun tradition and stay at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake for the weekend. We stayed there the first two nights of our honeymoon, and couldn't wait to go back after we left. It's probably one of our favorite places in Utah!

And another reason why we love this hotel is that they definitely go the extra mile. When we booked the room, we mentioned we were coming back for our one year anniversary. We got to our room and found this on the table...

And yes, it was delicious. They also gave us a bottle of sparkling cider and an upgrade to an executive suite when we go back next year. I'm already looking forward to it! 
It's not everyday that you get to eat a white chocolate swan :) haha

Other highlights:
We love the spa! The cozy pool lounge chairs and the classical music puts me to sleep every time.

And another part of the hotel that never ceases to amaze me is the venetian chandeliers that are literally everywhere you look. I think you appreciate them more when you've actually seen someone blow the glass that it takes to make them. It's incredible!

We had a wonderful time and it was a much needed break from our normal weekend routine of studying!
