I can hardly believe Dan and I first said, “I do” a year ago today.
Part of me feels like Dan has always been by my side.
Part of me feels like I just met him yesterday.
There are times when we’re cuddling in bed, or when I laugh at his adorkable enthusiasm for life, or even just when I look across the table at my husband…
And I can’t believe we’re actually married.
I can’t believe he picked me to be his wife.
Sometimes I can’t believe he even sent me that first wonderful message on OKCupid!
I’m so head-over-heels in love with Dan that it sometimes just feels like a dream.
I love him so much that I feel like no one else on Earth can understand exactly how I feel, because it simply isn’t possible for anyone else to love a person this much.
- Mom’s cancer diagnosis
- Grandma’s death
- Dan’s job loss
- My health problems
- Our move to Georgia
- Our health insurance problems
But our challenges in life are opportunities to live out our wedding vows to each other.
For better or for worse
For richer, for poorer
In sickness and in health
While I certainly don’t recommend tackling all these things during your first year of marriage, this year has only proven to me that, together, Dan and I can survive any challenge we face.
Santé à Mon Mari!
Cheers to my husband, Dan!
Thank you for always playing with my hair. Thank you for teaching me how to drive a manual transmission. Thank you for supporting my writing. Thank you for sending me funny animal videos when I’m upset. Thank you for always buying my preferred brand of toilet paper. Thank you for taking pictures for my blog. Thank you for fighting with our health insurance over our prescription coverage. Thank you for taking care of me when I’m sick.
You are an incredible man, and I am so blessed to call you my husband.
We might not share a name, but we share a beautiful marriage, and that is more than enough.
