Today is my first wedding anniversary.
Like our wedding, it’s been a year full of fun.
A year full of geekery.
A year full of random dancing and dipping in the kitchen.
A year full of cheesily matching one another’s outfits.
A year full of celebrating the little things.
A year full of improving our vows.
A year full of protecting each other.
I used to think marriage was the end. I was wrong. It’s the beginning.
As I sit here next to my spouse on our anniversary in a fancy hotel room we probably can’t afford, I feel nothing but gratitude for every silly little second of the past 365 days. Every Thursday we’ve dubbed our Scandal and wine night, every weekend we begrudgingly spent cleaning, every time I get frustrated that food doesn’t cook itself… I cherish it all.
December 7th is the day we will always celebrate but it’s each day we surprise one another and put each other before our own needs that truly deserves the glory.
