Happy 1st Anniversary, Rineharts!

Today marks our one year wedding anniversary!  I'm still having a hard time believing it's been a full year.  Time really does fly.  We've also done so much in 365 days - we adopted a dog, bought a house, traveled to Oregon, Catalina and Maui, were both promoted at work, among so many other little momentous occasions.

Without further ado, here's how we spent our first anniversary!

Hold up - rewind for a hot second...

And we're back!  First thing we did was exchange gifts.

In honor of paper, I contacted Meehea who owns the cutest little Etsy shop.  She hand drawns, paints then digitizes her pieces and I'm obsessed!  She even included Kona in her painting. <3

Then, we went to Oak Glen where Dustin proposed.  It was raining cats and dogs, but we found a store right off the road that had everything we wanted - apples, apple cider, apple pie, and apple + pumpkin butter.

Check out our loot!

Then we came home and prepped our balloon.  As our "unity ceremony", Dustin and I locked heart-shaped padlocks together to represent our love locking and commit ourselves to each other forever.  We tied the keys to a balloon and we let the keys up into the sky!  So we decided to release another balloon for our anniversary and write some top moments on the balloon from our first 365 days together.

Up, up and away!

Last but not least!  We had a mini replica of our cake made and I quickly threw together a cake topper with some craft supplies and skewers we had lying around.
