The Airplanes: One Year and Still Flying High!

Hello, hive!

Man, I’ve missed you guys! Time has been absolutely…wait for it…flying!

In case you’re new (welcome!) — hi, I’m Mrs. Airplane, I got married last year, and Mr. Plane and I just celebrated our one-year anniversary.

So what’s new with the Airplanes?

I mentioned in my farewell post that we’d both accepted new jobs since the wedding, both of which are going great. I’m starting to travel more with my job, and have trips to Europe and Singapore planned in the next few months. Mr. Plane’s new job necessitated a bit of a relocation, and I’m excited to share some other big news…

We’re building a house! We got word shortly after I finished my recaps that we’d been approved to start construction on our new home. The process has been slow so far, but we’re confident we’ll be in by the spring, as promised by the builder. The basement was poured last week, and we’re finally beginning to see some progress.

Our actual anniversary was a few weeks ago, and we were lucky enough to be able to travel back to Aruba, where we took our honeymoon last year.

It was a fantastic vacation. Mr. Plane sure does know how to spoil me.

For the traditional first anniversary gift of paper, we had very similar ideas — cookbooks! Mr. Plane and I both love to cook, and taking the time to plan and cook a meal together was one of the things we missed the most when wedding planning got the busiest. Now that things have settled down a bit, we have been cooking more at home, and we can’t wait to cook together in our new kitchen.

Mr. Plane also got me tickets to see Wicked in December, which I am so, so excited for — I’m actually listening to the soundtrack as I write this post!

When we got back from Aruba, we finally got to taste our wedding cake. It was actually better than I expected, for year-old cake!

I know I’ve said it already, but I really miss the Wedding Bee gang! I hope to be back soon to participate in the After the Wedding series. In the meantime, I’m still blogging on a regular basis about cooking, travel, and the homebuilding process over on our family blog, Stieve Says… Feel free to stop by and say hi!

Until next time…

All the best,
Mrs. Airplane
