Today is significant.
Not just because this is the day that I launch this new little space in the blogosphere. My little project about projects and other musings.
No. Today is significant for a much bigger reason.
On this very day, April 28th, 2014, I have been married for exactly one year.
My how it has flown by.
What are the lyrics to that old song? “One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do…”. I guess that would have sometimes described my feelings as I walked through life as a single woman for years. But now, one is anything but lonely.
Our one year anniversary marks a year of living life as a “we”. It marks the anniversary of a day that we both, at times, thought would never happen. The day we became one. This past year has been full of adventure, adjustments, cuddles and quarrels. There have been home projects, road trips, laughter and singing.
Lots and lots of singing.
You have no idea.
It has been a blast. And sometimes hard. But mostly really fun. I am continuously blown away by the fact that this man loves me and I love him. “We got married!” or “you picked me!” has been blurted out by one or both of us at least a hundred times in the past year. We’re kind of annoying that way.
And we are being transformed, day by day. Learning, through it all, what it means to be a husband and a wife, how to love another person selflessly, and to be grateful each and every day for this person God has gifted me with.
So Happy Anniversary to the love of my life. I could not imagine a better match for me than you. I can’t wait to see how this life unfolds and how God wants to work in and through us to continue His work of restoration. I love you, sweetie!
