Geekery and one year together

This past labor day marked our first year anniversary. We celebrated with a Dragoncon themed cocktails and cupcakes, and I attended my first Heels on Wheels ride around Atlanta.

Heels on Wheels is an event hosted by the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. On the first Saturday of every month, a group of finely dressed ladies meet in Woodruff park to take a leisurely ride down Peachtree Street and enjoy eachother’s company. I’ve since been to 2 of these rides and am looking forward to going to more in the future.

The September ride was great, because he cruised through DragonCon to people watch. Our Cocktails and Cupcakes that month was held the same weekend because our dear friends Kat and Paul were down from NJ for con.

Kelly also showed up with Gavin, who spent most of the night playing with Tim's Green Lantern rings.

I made various super hero themed cupcakes in honor of the geekery. Spiderman was red velvet, captain america was american themed home made funfetti, and batman was devil's food cake.

After Dragoncon festivities were over, Tim and I headed to the Bahamas to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed on Paradise Island, right next to the Atlantis resort. Here are a ton of pictures in no particular order:

The most authentic Bahamian food we had while there, it's in an area called the wharf
