Hence, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds just made us feel all warm and bubbly inside with their first anniversary as a married couple. Via People, they celebrated like pretty much any other Regular Non-Famous Couple would do: They hit up a restaurant they've been wanting to try and stuffed their faces (I'm guessing). While visiting Savannah, Georgia, the unreasonably good-looking couple stopped by Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room, telling the owner they had never been able to get in before. Adorable detail: The all-you-can-eat restaurant serves down-home Southern favorites, which was a sweet way to celebrate their Southern wedding.

And some details that make it seem like any of us could be BFFs with the Lively-Reynolds duo: Their celebratory meal cost a mere $36 and they sat with six other people at a family-style table. So down-to-earth and laid-back, it almost makes me forgive the fact that they left before the banana pudding dessert. Do you guys not know how delicious banana pudding is?? Let's all go out for some at Magnolia next time you're in New York, OK?

At any rate, they won over the owner, who called them "absolutely darling," and we have to agree. Happy anniversary, kids!

Don't you think this is a sweet, simple way to celebrate your first anniversary? How do you celebrate anniversaries?
