One year

One year ago today was one of the best days of my life.  I married my best friend on a lovely fall day in front of our closest family and friends.  It doesn't seem as though a year has gone by since September 22, 2012.  I honestly wouldn't change a single thing about that day and even if it took 4 years to get Andrew to the altar it was so worth the wait.

I still look at our wedding pictures constantly, still think about how I felt that day and how much my face and feet hurt the next morning.  I can remember our first dance and never wanting it to end, seeing my family and friends having a good time and knowing they were all there to support us.  That week was so tough, just five days later my grandpa lost his battle to cancer but I carried him with me that day in my bouquet and kept him close in my heart.

 Our lives are really going to change come January when we welcome our daughter into the world and I always want her to know how much her mom and dad love one another and love her.  I know I will never forget that day, I will never forget how I felt and I will certainly keep falling in love more and more with Andrew each day.

To my adorable, funny, amazing and hardworking husband Andrew,

I can never say thank you enough for loving me the way that you do, for supporting me through so many happy and sad times, for making me smile, for driving me absolutely insane and for opening your heart to me.  I am so blessed to have you in my life, to have not only your love but the love of your entire family.  I'm so happy that I can share this crazy journey with someone who can keep my feet on the ground.  Here's to the first year and the next 50, to becoming parents, watching our family grow and change, growing old together and living by a lake somewhere when we retire so we can day drink and hang out on one of our five boats.  I love you pumpkin!  Happy anniversary!
