[warning] sappy post ahead followed by even more photos.
That day was incredible. Literally the greatest day of my life. I married my love, celebrated with friends and family and ventured into married life happier than ever.
Little did I know that life would only get better than that day already was. Maybe I'm a sap because I'm still considered a newly wed, but marriage is the greatest thing ever. My wedding planner told me this 100 times during wedding planning, the wedding is one day, but your marriage is for the rest of your life. It was so easy to get caught up in planning the perfect day, that sometimes I missed the idea that we were preparing for the rest of our lives.
PS -- if you're following me on Instagram, I promise this morning will be the last anniversary picture for a while. I can't help it.
If I've learned anything, marriage is the greatest even when life isn't the greatest. Marriage is the happy and the sad and the ups and the down. But it's also those amazing quiet times in between. Marriage is learning how to get through life, together. It's about getting through the crap, together.
Adam has transformed the words love and commitment in way I never knew I needed. It's support when it isn't asked. It's love when its not deserved. It's a smoothie on Sunday morning when you had a little too much wine the night before. Or taking Henry out first thing in the morning so I can get another 3 minutes of sleep.
This post is dedicated to Adam and to us. It's a celebration of this amazing life we've created together and the life we will continue to build together. I won the marriage jackpot with him.
To you, Adam, my love. Thank you for asking me on a date five plus years ago, picking me two years ago, and saying I do, one year ago. I can't wait to see all the great things we continue to do together. I love you more than blog posts can express (which you know is a lot). Here's to year one, and here's to 100 more.
Thanks for letting me be a sap today, regular scheduled posts will be back tomorrow :)
