our 1st anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to us!

We have had a wonderful first year of marriage. We have learned a lot, fought a little, and laughed even more, and are so blessed and happy to be married to each other.

We're looking forward to many more amazing years together!

"For marriage, which is often spoken of as a bond, becomes actually many bonds, many strands, of different textures and strengths, making up a web that is taut and firm. The web is fashioned by many kinds of love; romantic love at first, then a slow-growing devotion and playing through these, a constantly rippling companionship. It is made of loyalties, and inter-dependencies and shared experiences. It is woven of memories of meeting and conflicts; of triumphs and disappointments. It is a web of communication, a common language, and the acceptance of lack of language, too; a knowledge of likes and dislikes, of habits and reactions, both physical and mental. It is a web of instincts, and intuitions, and known and unknown exchanges. The web of marriage is made of nearness, in the day-to-day living side by side, looking...in the same direction. It is woven in space and time of the substance of life itself."
- Anne Morrow Lindbergh (read during our wedding ceremony)
