One year

One year ago today, we said "I Do."

It was cloudy and overcast all day. On the way to the wedding site, it stormed.

But it cleared up. We saw a double rainbow. And everything was perfect.

Over the past years, I've learned that's a lot what marriage is like. You have those tough, difficult, stormy moment. But it clears. And no matter what, you get through it.

This weekend, we did some reflecting on our first year of marriage. I declared it's been the best year of my life, and remarked at how well everything just fell into place.

Yes, we've had our arguments. We've had tears. But we've experienced more laughter, joy and love than I ever thought possible. I can definitely say that I love my husband more now than I did a year ago.

So many people out there say marriage doesn't change much when you are already living together. I was one of them. But I beg to differ. Something about those vows, that commitment, makes it all the more serious.

We were pretty low key for this anniversary. Originally, we planned to go back to the beach, but with Cooper and wanting to save our money for other projects, we opted for a day in St. Louis instead. I'll detail that trip later this week.

Today is hubby's first day back at work after being on vacation last week, and I had an early morning meeting, so he requested spaghetti for supper tonight. Of course, I do have the top layer of our wedding cake in the fridge, and am hoping it's at least semi-edible.

Nothing extravagant. Just living our "old married couple" life. And loving every moment of it.

Happy anniversary, love. Can't wait for all the others to come!

    Your anniversary reminds me a lot of our first one - how you plan something big and end up going low key. Craig wanted us to have dinner at our wedding venue and maybe stay the night there again. He thought of a limo and the works. We ended up just going out to dinner. :) And that was just perfect with me. :)

    Now for the 2nd best year of your life... :)
