Year One

A year ago today, Matt and I surprised everyone by going out to the hills and getting hitched. I love surprises. It was a gorgeous, unseasonably warm day on 11.18.12 (unlike tonight as I am writing this, the wind is 65 mph and the tornado sirens are big).

On a trip to Walgreens to pick out a card last night, I hated all of them. I sat on the floor, reading each one and realizing that anniversary cards are a LOT trickier to pick out than birthday and baby shower cards. So, I thought I'd come here, to my writing space, to write my own anniversary message to my husband of one year.

My even-keeled, relaxed other half. It is so easy for me to get worked up when the day starts to fray away into disaster, but you remind me that life will go on if Larkyn doesn't nap, if the dog tracks in mud, or someone pees on the floor (could be anyone, really).

You are your daughter's hero, and I am so excited for our little guy to look up to you one day soon. You are the dad who always thinks about your child first. Even though that makes me crazy when I want to control the situation, I know you just want her to be happy.

As a man of few words, I hang on every word you say. I know, being the total opposite, that most of what I say probably goes in one ear and out the other while you filter out all the nonsense. But somewhere in there, I hope you have caught on to just how much I love you.

We made it through the first year and have lots of exciting moments in the near future. Can't wait to share them with you...

That was beautiful honey and Hallmark couldn't have said it any better, nor could they have picked a better picture than the one you chose. I love you both. Mom
