1 Year of Marriage | Anniversary

Yesterday was my 25th birthday… Josh surprised me with a wonderful dinner at home, candles on a tiramisu cake, a day of shopping and a beautiful succulent plant. It’s funny to think that a year ago, I was sick on my birthday hoping I would get better before our wedding the next day!

I woke up this morning remembering our wedding day, and kind of missing it too. The first year of our marriage has gone by so quickly, and quite opposite of what “they” say… it has not been the hardest year we’ve gone through together. Instead, we have had a ton of fun building our business and more importantly, just enjoying time together. More and more, I am realizing what it will mean to spend my life with this wonderful man and I am just so lucky. I did marry my best friend, the most thoughtful person, the one who makes me laugh the most. I can’t wait to see what the next 60+ years together hold… exciting trips around the world and simple moments of reading next to each other in bed.

Now, we are headed off to Leavenworth for a little getaway…so I better cut this short. //Ali

{The first anniversary is the “paper” year. I made Josh an eye chart print with an important section of our vows that we both coincidentally said. Josh gave me a leather journal to jot down memories from our second year of marriage and a book of poems. Oh, and Rufus is just always there.}

    (COMMENTER’S NOTE: I’ve had a full year to ponder exactly what I would say on your one-year anniversary so this is gonna be absolutely fantastic.)

    “They” say marriage is an institution. I say, “so is a mental hospital.”

    “They” say marriage is a binding contract of love. I say, “that sounds like a murder-for-hire plot.”

    “They” say marriage is the union of two souls into one. I say, “is there surgery involved in that? Painkillers?”

    “They” say you may kiss the bride. I say, “forget the bride, I’mma kiss the groom.”

    “They” say you will grow old together. I say, “at 5-feet-9-inches, I’m not growing anymore.”

    “They” say “congratulations!” RuPaul says, “conDRAGulations!”

    I’m so happy that I have the pleasure of not only being friends with both of you, but being a special part of your family. I love you both so much and I can’t wait to continue being the wittiest anniversary commenter for the next 60+ years.

    XOXOXO
