One Year

A year ago, this happened:


It’s hard to believe a  year has passed already. It seems like we’re just getting started. And yet, at the same time, it’s hard to believe it’s ONLY been a year. It seems like so much has happened.

One thing is for sure, this year has brought out the best and the worst in us. It has given us the time and space to kick and scream and grow … both independently and together. We’ve been able to test out the promises we made, and fine-tune our plans for our future. There have been nasty fights, big miscommunications, and many tears. But there have also been moments of complete trust, amazing understanding, and total honesty. All in all … I think it’s been weighted on the good side.

Looking at the state of our marriage, I can honestly say we’re in an even better place now than we were on our wedding day. As it should be. It’s been a trial by fire (how much madness can you fit into one year?) but we are here, holding onto each other, and knowing we’ll make it. What more can you ask for?

To continuing to feel, today and forever, the pure joy we felt on this day last year.
