One year ago today a dream came true. Two "I's" became "we" and a forever was promised.
One year ago today, Keith and I stood under the hot September sun said "yes" to each other. We said yes to a lifetime of memories, to making it through life's twists and turns together, to laughing together and adventuring together and and to never giving up. Our first year of marriage has been full of surprises, of laughter, of tears, and of learning. It's been everything and nothing that I expected. It's been fun and hard and stressful and easy. It's been everything, it's been beautiful, and it's been ours.
People told us what to expect. They told us we would fight, they gave us advice about building a life together, they gave suggestions for how to make things fun and memorable. But what I've learned during this first year is that nobody can tell you how life is going to be and how different things are going to feel. Nobody can prepare you for what little things in life are going to mean the most, for what things are going to cause you to fight, or for how exactly you learn to show more love every day.
Happy anniversary, Keith. I loved you then, I love you now, I'll love you always.
