but remember when WE got married?


Dear lovelies,

Tomorrow is our one year anniversary. We are going on a little get away to Midway tonight to celebrate- thanks Brufords! This past year I have read, talked, and thought a lot about marriage. I can say that in one year I feel like my heart has changed forever. I have become a different person with different opinions, emotions, and a different perspective on love. Can I just say something about marriage for a minute? I just wanted to say that marriage is wonderful. It is hard, confusing, and humbling, it is absolutely wonderful. And can I say something else? I really love Brian Todd. He has made me better, accepted me, and brought so much good into my life. Brian, do you remember when we had 5 jobs, 6 callings, took 200 bike rides, remodeled 1 house, ate 30 $5 pizzas, made 300 trips to Home Depot, and 50 trips to IKEA all in one year? That was fun huh? I'm sure we'll have just as much fun this next year- don't worry. Hopefully less stress and emotional break downs... but we will just have to see.

And so here's to marriage, not the kind they talked about in Julia Robert's movies and Beehives, but the real deal. And for your viewing pleasure, a trailer to our wedding video. I've only watched it 33 times...

Kisses. The Williams

Andrea, I'm glad that you love Brian Todd because I love him too. Although in a little different way... Awkward. :)

Congrats on the one year anniversary!

That is so sweet. I loved watching the video. I felt like I was there. One year goes fast and the next years don't slow down any. Enjoy experiencing every moment with your best friend... it's the best. Happy anniversary!

I can't believe it has been a year. I can't believe I have been married for over 3. weird. I can't believe I get to see you so soon. I miss your face.

The Strongs said...

I didn't know you two have only been married a year. I thought you were married for like 5. I wonder if I made that up. Anyway, congratulations and can I just say that your wedding dress and theme are amazing? Also, when is our dance party.

katie said...

Our marriage is just like the ones talked about in Beehives. Maybe when you have been married as long as we have you can say that too. Ha! Congratulations on a happy year!

I haven't been keeping up, but happy anniversary! I love the videos. Since I missed it all, it was great to see part of the special day that you two had. Still wish we could have had that meeting a bit later so we could have gone. It was sad to know we were so close but the wrong date. Love ya!
