Matty

Well there have been a lot of milestones around here lately.
This past weekend was the one year mark for my favorite
 brother Matt on his mission.

Matt is serving in the Santiago North, Chile Mission and 
I am so proud of him!
I can't believe it has been a year already.

Matt and I are really close and I love being around him, I miss him soo much!
I was so worried about him when he left, that he would be safe and happy and not homesick
and get along with his companions, and Matt has showed no fear from day one.
He is such a strong person who everyone loves to be around,
No more worrying, he is doing awesome!

Matt is one of the funniest people I know, he seriously can make our family laugh at all times. 
His emails are one of the highlights of my week because he is still so himself, still makes me laugh so hard but I can see him growing and being an amazing missionary each week as well.

He is officially on the downward, and the countdown begins. 
I have so much respect for him and every week when he writes home I am amazed at the 
task that missionaries do.  They are changing people's live for generations to come and preparing 
to be the best versions of themselves-better husbands and fathers and people.
Because my brother chose to serve a mission, People's lives in Chile will be changed forever-how cool is that!?
I was a little emotional dropping him off at the MTC

I love you and am so proud of you Matty!
Can't wait to seeeeee yyyyoooouuuu!!
Go burn a shirt! haha

...Insert cliche title about Vegas!

Viva Las Vegas!
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas
Sin City!

What you will.



So Ben and I have been planning a trip to Vegas for our one year anniversary for a while now!
Instead of doing presents we decided to do this trip and go all out!
It did not disappoint!
It was a Vegas glamour glitz, yet cozy and relaxing weekend and we loved it.

Highlights:
We got a room upgrade when we got there!
We ate amazing food-including The Cheesecake Factory and The Hash House 
which has been featured on The Food Network and Man vs. Food.  It was out of control huge and delicious!! (Thank you Kristy MacLennan for starting this love affair I have)
We stayed at the Mandalay Bay and laid out on the "beach".
We won some blackjack.
We strolled and shopped the outlet malls.
We walked the strip and saw the fountain show...a few times
We slept in.
We got a couples massage!

Best. Year. Ever.

On Sunday, Ben and I celebrated our first year Anniversary!
We made it!
And Ben,
 like the famous Mr. Darcy once said to the love of his life, Miss Elizabeth Bennett, 

"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you"

                                                                
That pretty much sums it up!
I feel lucky everyday.
One year ago, we were starting this crazy year!
It's been Soooo fun, and happy and sad, and hysterical, and stressful, and loving and strengthening and I can't wait for a bajillion more with you!
 It really was the best year ever.

After one year, I am finally saying my name with your last-
and it sounds just right.
-Love Cassie Tremblay
