One Year

Yesterday was our one year wedding anniversary. We spent it flying home from Greece, capping off an incredible vacation together. Once we got home we ordered our favorite pizza, brought our anniversary wedding cake, some beers and headed to Northerly Island for a picnic at "the scene of the crime" (as Spencer referred to it). It was perfect.


Even after 10 years of dating, our first year of marriage was entirely different. There were adjustments (both good and bad), fun, sadness, laziness, craziness but more importantly than anything else, there was so much love. I love this human more than anyone on the planet. He completes me in a way I never knew someone could.

So my love, thank you for calming my crazy, appreciating my nutso and putting up with my psycho.

  12. What an amazing way to celebrate your anniversary - both your trip to Greece and your chill night on the Northerly Island.

    I'm 3 months deep in my 1st year of marriage and, like you said, even after many years of dating, it comes with its own set of emotions. But, you made it through!! Congrats and cheers to many more years of love!
