A Year Ago Today (Yesterday)

We'll pretend like I posted this yesterday...
One year ago today I married my best friend.  He's the most wonderful man who constantly makes me laugh, and smile.  When I'm feeling blue he knows what the situation calls for.  He either makes me laugh and see the irony of the situation, or he holds me until it's better.  We have both said that we make each other want to be a better person, and that is so true.  I've heard so many people say "I don't want someone that wants to change for me" or "I'll never change for him/her"...truth is, you do change.  You both change, but you definitely change for the better.  We have learned to be biased with our love, and fair with our fighting.  We have fun! And we don't get all caught up in the silly little things that some couples do.  I would say this first year has been nothing but great, and I can't wait to see what year #2 brings us :)

A Year Ago Today...
...I was peeking through the church doors at my groom, and all the friends and family that were there to share it with us.
...I was wearing a gorgeous dress (albeit heavy) on the hottest day of the year.  Seriously, it was freakin hot! The whole summer had been amazing, average of 80-85 degrees each day.  Who picked the only 98 degree day?? We did! We did!
...I was shoving Shakspeares pizza in my face, not really caring if I smudged my makeup
...I didn't cry very much, to my own surprise.  But to make up for my eyes, my nose couldn't control itself! I sniffed so much while saying my vows, it was insane!
...I was having the best time with my groom, giggling while we were standing in front of everyone saying our vows.  "Did you cut yourself shaving this morning???" (major gash on his neck!)...."ummmm yeah" hahahaha!

(see the cut???) :)
...I was climbing into a limo, and melting into the seat.  We were done! That was one of my favorite moments of the day.  Calm and peaceful...and I was so full of love.

...We were walking into a room full of our favorite people, and I can't begin to explain to you how amazing the food was! Of all the things about our wedding, we got the most compliments on the decorations and food at the reception.  Loved it!
...I was dancing with my dad...he's the best

...We were laughing at the beautiful slideshow that my brother put together for us.  Between me having no hair until I was 3 and Timothy's snapping turtle picture, who wouldn't assume we'd have beautiful children??
...We were pouring ourselves back into that limo while the party continued into the night.  What an awesome, relaxing ride to the hotel room.  Such a fun night!
...We were reflecting on the amount of love that surrounded us that day. I thank God every day for how much love is in my life.

Thank you honey for the best first year ever! You are right, if the rest of our marriage is as fun as the first year, I can't wait to see what's next!
