One Year

Mr. Adventure and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary this weekend. It was beautiful. And amazing. He took me back to the hotel where we spent our first night together and we played Trivial Pursuit and went thrift shopping (my choice) and also watched the Virginia Tech game (his choice) the next day.

Friday evening we walked around the lake near our hotel and then went out to eat at a really nice restaurant. The weather was perfect: it was warm, about 60, and it was so nice to reminiscence about our wedding. And how nervous we both were. And how relieved we are that we don't have to battle nervousness anymore. And about how short a year is. It's been a year? Woah.

Back in our hotel room we enjoyed strawberries with whipped cream, a little bit of television, and a lot of snuggling. Night: perfection. I am so happy about the amazing, handsome, hard-working and compassionate man I married. I could gush about our marriage, but I won't. I'll just say that he has exceeded all of my expectations and his mercy and kindness towards my stubbornness still blows me away. Every time. I would not trade this for the world.

Here's to next year, baby. And the next. And the next. Hopefully, many many more to come.
