25 June 2012

1 year ago today...

























I cannot believe that one year ago today, Luke and I became husband and wife. It was the most perfect June day. Looking through all of our wedding photos brought back a rush of emotion. I still remember the way I felt waking up that morning, knowing I would become his Mrs; it felt so right. I remember how beautifully sunny it was, but also how God cooled down the evening just enough to make it perfect outdoor wedding weather. I can still remember the sound of our 300+ guests filling the reception, laughing, hugging, dancing. There is something so magical about having every one of your favorite people in the same place at the same time. June 25, 2011 is a day I will never forget.















If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. This first year of marriage has been such a blessing. God has taught Luke and I so much about each other and the commitment it takes to be in a Godly marriage. The sacrifice can be difficult and it is daily, but the blessings exceed the sacrifice. Luke and I are not perfect and our marriage will never be perfect, but we are learning daily to seek God's face knowing that He will guide us. I couldn't have asked for a better 1st year of marriage.

Tonight, we will eat year-old wedding cake and re-watch our wedding DVD. I may I will definitely cry and Luke will try to be tough, but I know it gets to him too. We've already exchanged gifts, but don't you worry. There will be an entire post focused on our traditional/modern gift-giving and cake eating a little later this week. :)

Happy Anniversary Luke. I love you more than life itself. There is nothing I love more than sharing the crazy life with you. 1 year down, 99 to go!
