Year ONE anniversary | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Year ONE anniversary







Wait what?????????
It's already been an entire YEAR?!
With my bae?! haha bae.
Anyways, WOW. It really did go by super quickly. Which I hear is a good thing I feel that way :) This year I learned how gosh darn stubborn I can be, how impossibly patient Jason is, and how much love I have stored up inside of me that bursts out each time I see my lover boy. (well, most of the time because you know, #horomones)

I convinced Jason that we HAD to save  a tier of our cake to eat today haha he was so grossed out but let me save it (muah!!) Pray for us that we don't get sick and die and that the freezer burn isn't too apparent. Seriously though. 

Our first year memories: starting a business together in November, going to Mexico with married friends, getting a passport (me), moving twice, the best date nights, going to bed at 10 and then just talking/laughing till 12, snuggles for days, first holidays and birthdays as married people, first time living with significant other, he cannot believe how much hair I have and how much of it is all over our house haha, exploring volcano caves, married friends, Those are just random memories/big things we've had as firsts together!

My likes: when J cleans the house, specifically those dang dishes, when he helps me with making the wood signs, when he wants to snuggle :):):), when he let's me pick the movie, when he's proud of me, when he makes sure to kiss me goodbye everyday, when he makes me a better person (aka always), when he offers to help, when he has a fresh hair cut (s-e-x-y), when he helps me pick what to wear, when he just rubs my back at random, when he surprises, me. how he supports me in anything I want to do (like this blog for instance). Basically pretend this list is like 100 million more sentences long, k? because I could go on.

For the sake of celebrating: our engagement post is here, a wedding post is here. AND I've been working on writing up the story of us because our prosperity NEEDS to know how we met. We could be famous one day, you know. That's like a 2% chance (being generous here) but yeah.

Advice for anyone who cares: Marriage isn't easy (as is heard all the freaking time, it's not a lie you guys) BUT it's also the best. Sure you fight, but then it's just another reason to makeup and grow closer. It's all about compromise and communicating people. Key things here. I've learned from lots of life over here and thank the heavens above that Jason is such a good communicator. I'd like to say I'm good, but I need some coaxing sometimes, ya know?

To Jason: I love you I love you I love you, I honestly never thought I had it in me to love someone like I love you. It really does grow every single second and every day. You STILL give me butterflies J. That's big. Thank you for being so patient and loving and caring and attractive. I know 100% that you were the one I was meant to marry and I am soooo grateful for that! Now stop reading my blog and let's go celebrate and practice making babies ;)

  3. Congratulations on 1 year and wishing you both many MANY more to come! Marriage is hard and does take lots of work but if you're married to your best friend, it does make things a little easier. xx

  7. Happy anniversary!! I'm so bummed we don't get to eat our top layer of our cake on the 29th...destination weddings make saving anything very difficult 😕

    1. Thank you!! But a destination wedding sounds AMAZING! Just make a little replica, then it's fresh, too :)

  8. Happy Anniversary! I have to say your dress is something else. Like so bohemian chic. I especially love that you just had a simple hair style and pinned a section back. It's such a refreshing take on the typically over done bride look. Have a wonderful weekend and hopefully the two of you will do something special to celebrate. (:

  11. Happy Anniversary!!!!! Doesn't it feel so weird that you've already been married one whole year?? And that you've had a boy roommate for a whole year?? That's how I felt!

    1. Thank you!!! And it TOTALLY does!! It's like wait, a year? Already?!!?! I had brothers growing up so it wasn't as much of a shock but I've never shared a bed so that was more of an adjustment. Now i can't imagine how I ever slept alone haha
