What a difference a year makes!
this time last year I was out of my mind trying to finalize details for the "blessed event"
and dealing with the drama/fall out of this
And here we are a year later and life could not be better.
I think I love him even more now than I did on that day.
I'm not sure how that's even possible but it's true.
We have been truly blessed to have some wonderful friends and family and the fact that we are able to spend time with them all throughout the year and celebrate many a milestone/special occasion.....well that just about makes my heart burst!
I was chatting with my dad yesterday evening and he mentioned how he couldn't believe it's been a year already.
And all I could think was "that's IT? Only a year?"
Seems like it's been a lifetime.
But I'm sure that's because we've been together for so long.
I look back on that day (7-24-10) with happy thoughts.
I (barely) remember the things that went wrong or were slightly 'off' that day.
I just remember the flutter in my heart as I prepared to descend 50 steps in 4inch heels to go meet my man.
I remember the smile on his face when I came around the corner, and the general feeling of happiness all throughout the day.
Can we do it again?
I wouldn't mind it all.
I could do without the craziness that came with but I think I'd be better equipped to handle it now.
Anywho - with the anniversary fast approaching it begs the question:
"What does one get their spouse as a gift?"
We're already going out of town so what else is there to do?
We were "discussing" it the other day - well rather HE said:
"If you'd like to buy me an anniversary gift feel free to take some cash out of the savings".
Not because he was hinting at a gift but because his gift has been in the works for months.
Then of course I had to hip him to the whole list of what each anniversary is (1st year = paper, 2nd = cotton etc...)
He was shocked.
I laughed again.
Oh Babe, you have no idea what you've gotten yourself into do you?
So I can't wait to get this show on the road, yes this time next week I will be on official Vegas countdown.
How did you celebrate your first anniversary?
Did you give gifts?
