Today marks our first wedding anniversary... YAY!!!!!! No more of those silly month-a-versaries... we've gone big-time now! Haha. It was the perfect way to put a cap on our very first year together as a little family, and as I held my husband's hand and stared out at the lake, I couldn't help but be a little reflective and reminiscent. What a great year we've had... we've grown so much, both individually and together. And we've had so much fun ♡

I don't want to overstep the cheesy line once again, going on and on and on about how much I love my husband and stuff, but I would like to say a few things on this significant little occasion... ☺ The road that has led me to this 1st anniversary has been a good little road. I think back to my mid-twenties to early thirties and what a unique season that was. So full of challenges, growth, and the chance to throw myself into all the good things in my life in a season that didn't include a serious relationship, leaving my job and moving. And that season had other purposes! And I'm so glad I didn't miss them, and miss out on what God had for me in that time. It was truly a pivotal time for me to become me. And then my little road turned and twisted, and into my life came Adam. 

In reflecting on our first year together, I have to say that I can't imagine anyone being better at loving me. I hope the same could be said for how I love him. I just look at all the ways he loves and shows unending grace and understanding, and gives and compromises without strings attached... man, it humbles me constantly. I am so blessed to be married to this amazing man. I love how he challenges me, and I feel like the truest version of me... the best version of me... when I am with him. Flaws and all... how great is that!? That's the stuff! I love how hard he makes me laugh... so hard that I've developed certain laughs that I'd never heard before he came along... he mimics them and knows them, and even though he's poking fun, I've never felt more loved and accepted. He is the perfect man for me. As we navigate through life, and love and play and learn to compromise and put each other first.  I pray that we continue to grow and strengthen this good thing we've got going. Thank you all who've walked this path with us and as we've merged our little stories into a brand new one. We are excited for year two... and continue to be so darn excited that we get to walk through life together!!! I am still waking up pinching myself... 

And that is really just the beginning of our story!

I can't wait to see what the rest of the story will be...

Thank you for being the amazing husband that you are!

Happy Anniversary Adam - I love you ♥
