My sweet, sweet husband, how has it already been one whole year of marriage? At times it feels like we've been married for years and years and at other times it seems like we just promised our lives to each other, cut the cake, threw the bouquet and garter and had a ribbon wand exit in front of all our family and friends. One of the many things I've learned in the past 12 months, is that I'm 100% uninterested in a life without you.

365 days of a husband and wife walking together in a covenant that has bound their hearts together as one in The Lord.

365 days of choosing and learning what it looks like to choose the other's interest above their own.

365 I love yous
365 goodnights
365 good mornings 

I'm so lucky to be the one to love, honor, and cherish Matthew.

I honestly could not have imagined becoming Matthew's wife in any other dress. From the lace to the cap dress was an absolute dream come true.

365 days of wearing these precious rings.

365 days of laughing together
365 days of love
365 days of I'm sorrys
365 days of I forgive you

About this time last year, Matthew and I were getting ready with all of our best friends for our big day. The church was decorated and our family and friends were making the drive to one of our favorite places, Cookeville, to celebrate our sweet day with us.The pies were good. The party was fun. The pictures were made. And we were surrounded by tons of people who love us. It had been the best day (& hottest!) But July 18th is my favorite day ever because it's the day I became a wife to a truly great man. Being married to that man has been rich and abundant and beautiful and filled with joy. There have also been times that have challenged and refined us, humbled us and uncovered our deepest fears and hurts. I delight in the many ways we have grown in our first year, and yet I know that we have much more to learn about this profound and glorious covenant we walk in together. And I can't wait. You’ve blessed my life in more ways than you’ll ever know and your presence brings such joy to my heart. I love you, Matthew. Proud and thankful to be the one you chose. Happy FIRST Anniversary, my love!
