One year ago – May 30th, 2009, my best friend and I promised to love and cherish each other for the rest of our lives. To stick with each other no matter what and take care of each other the best that we can.
More than that though, we embarked on a journey. Every day, every month, and every year contains a new step, new adventures, and new things to learn. Each year brings us additional opportunities to grow, and well, despite the cheesiness – fall even more in love (yes, we’re still mushy).
This isn’t to say there aren’t challenges, or aren’t going to be challenges. Actually this year was filled with challenges. Sometimes it was like two nations merging and as you can imagine that can be rough at times. Transitioning is hard work (I don’t like to put cheese in my eggs *before* I cook them, thank you.) but it’s healthy.
Throughout all the challenges of this year – joining nations, having different opinions on how eggs should be cooked and developing as a couple – we’ve grown closer, deeper, and stronger. I’m so happy to be able to spend the rest of my journey (our journey) with my bestest friend. Alex is so supportive and kind and loving, he takes care of me and makes me feel safe. He keeps me stocked with chocolate and hugs and listens when I need to talk. He’s a great man, fantastic husband, and amazing friend.
In lieu of the weekly vlog and in celebration of our anniversary, I’ve posted some videos of our wedding last year:
