Our First Anniversary

One year ago today, I married the love of my life. Not only did I become a wife to an amazing man, I also became a step-mom to an amazing little boy.


As I think back on that day and see pictures, it feels like not much time has passed at all. Seeing each other for the first time that day...


Seeing Connor for the first time that day...


Little man walking down the aisle right before me to announce my entrance...


Saying our vows and knowing this day was beginning our marriage...


Our first kiss as husband and wife...


Our first dance to DMB's "Steady as We Go..."


My first dance with Connor to Lennon and Maisy Stella's "Ho Hey..."


Dancing the night away with all of our family and friends...


And leaving to head to Italy on our honeymoon and begin our life together...


It's been an amazing year. In some ways it's felt long, like when I remember the brutal winter in Indiana. In other ways, I really can't believe it's already been a year.  We've crammed a lot of trips back and forth to TN in over the last 52 weeks as well as some travels of our own together. We've been to concerts. We've gone to visit friends. We've laughed, we've cried, we've cuddled, we've argued. We've bought our first house and are moving in just a couple of weeks back to our home of Tennessee.

But more than anything that has happened, I think about this amazing man I found in Adam. I think about our story from over the last 11 years and how God always had the most perfect timing in weaving our lives in and out of each other's until it was time to truly bring us together. I think about how we both experience so much in our lives before we began dating that has shaped us into the kind of spouses and the kind of parents we are today.

And I can't wait to see what happens in the many more years of our marriage to come.

I love you, Adam.  You're my person.  Happy anniversary!
