One year ago today marks the happiest day of my life. On May 5, 2007 I had the privilege of marrying the best man I have ever known.
It has been a truly happy and blissful year. I had always heard that the first year of marriage is pretty hard, so I was bracing myself for some difficulty. But alas, that wasn't the case. It's been a blast! How do you write a post about your first year of married life without it being an essay? I was wondering about that until I decided to keep it short and real (and quite personal, might I add), and just write about my man. Before our wedding, Brent and I both came up with a list of 10 things we love about each other. We had our officiant (his dad) read them aloud during our ceremony before we said our vows. Here is what I wrote:

10. I love that you accept me just the way I am, all the time. I am so comfortable with you.

9. I love that I know for sure you're going to be a wonderful dad. I'm looking forward to raising kids with you.

8. I love that you posess the top 3 things I was looking for in a Christian mate: honesty, creativity, and gentleness.

7. I love your eyes and your hair.

6. I love how you love teenagers, old people, sunsets, small towns. and baby ponies.

5. I love that you always tip too much.

4. I love how you honor the Lord and always want to please Him.

3. I love your silliness and imagination: your original song lyrics, your drawings, and the crazy characters you act out.

2. I love how you are so dedicated to the institution of marriage.

1. I love it that 10 things barely scratches the surface of your wonderfulness.

Happy one year anniversary, Husband.

Pin It Now!
