Yesterday, hubby and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary! Neither of us could believe a whole year has already gone by but then when we start to think over our year, it's amazing how much life we crammed into year one of marriage.
Year one started with what I consider to be the best party I have ever attended or will ever attend in the future.
As the year crept on, we celebrated Allan's 34th birthday...
Our first year wrapped up last night with the most delicious date night out at a Brazilian Steakhouse. Grilled meat is probably my husband's love language- though I noticed it was missing from the best selling book. If you've never been to a Brazilian steakhouse, they essentially continuously serve you various grilled meats (cut straight off a skewer onto your plate), until you turn your cube to red to ask them to stop. There are also the most delectable "bars"- cold and hot items to select from as sides and if you leave this place feeling anything less than stuffed you're doing it wrong.
We managed to sneak in a picture- after we got home because we're forgetful like that. I am wearing a dress that I wore on our second date. We live in a different state, I have a new last name and a much rounder belly than I did the first time I wore it but I'm still standing next to my favorite guy and if possible I'm even happier.
Now I'm no expert after only one year, but it feels like the core of our marriage is built not just in the milestones- of which there are plenty but in the day to day as well. That's where trust is formed, where habits and quirks are learned, where romance is shared, and daily choices are made to love the other person well. I love doing everyday life with my husband- he makes it fun, he's patient with me, he's thoughtful and generous, he's cranky almost never and is the funniest man I know.
So year one- check! I'm pretty excited about year 2!
