First Anniversary

“Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay.  Your people will be my people and your God my God”

                                                                                                            -Ruth 1:16


Jeremy, tomorrow we will celebrate our first year of marriage together. I know neither of us can really believe it has already been a year since we said “I Do”, but I think we can both agree that our love for each other has grown immensely in this last year. Though I have known you for seven years, in just one year I have come to know you and your heart on a deeper level than ever before. You represent the best part of me. And you have somehow managed to reach the parts of my heart that even I forgot existed. You continue to teach me more about the love of God, and what it means to be a daughter of the King. You love me for who I am, the good and the bad, and for that I will always be thankful. I love your ceaseless positive outlook on life, and the true joy you bring to our marriage. Your determination to  do and to be better in all that you do inspires me daily. Our marriage will forever be my greatest adventure. Heres to many more years of bad dance moves, cuddle attempts, and lots of love, xoxo














Our wedding day truly exceeded all my dreams and expectations. It wasn’t because we were finally getting married or that all the hours of dreaming, crafting, and planning came to fruition and was perfect in the most beautiful way… It was because of all the love. The love between Jeremy and I, our friends, and our family. To all of you who were there or were there in spirit, thank you. You will never know how special you made that day for the both of us.

Looking back, I wouldn’t change a thing. It was the best day through and through. I certainly wouldn’t mind going on a honeymoon again though…another week in Aruba sounds incredible.
