On May 29th, 2016, I married my best friend.
Sometimes, young girls think that love is a magical fantasy which can often feel elusive. But really, that magical fantasy for which they’re searching is simply found in the patient consistency and persistence of love found in every day life, through “thick and thin”… when he’s there, simply living it with you.
The fantastical romance they show you in movies with all its glamour is incomparable to the “ordinary” magic of kindness, sacrifice, and the love you find in the moments that are void of glamour.
My magic is mainly found within moments in his arms – in moments like the lovely one above, and in moments of tears assuaged by hugs, and in moments of career wins celebrated together in joyful embraces…and in moments when I consider that at the end of every day, I get to go home to those arms.
365 days of loving him… it’s the best thing that I’ve ever done.
So for this upcoming week, I thought I’d post some of our celebratory adventures shared within our anniversary week — yes, I say anniversary week because that one day was not sufficient to adequately encompass the celebration. 🙂
Stay tuned for hot spots, fun outfits, and yum foods recommended by yours truly!
