a year ago today, i married the love of my life.

in the last year, i have learned to love more deeply, be more open, say what i need to say, 'let my hair down' (as he calls it), do what i love, live my passion.

i didn't learn any of it in the most glamorous of ways nor did i learn it in the ugliest of ways. some days have been prettier, easier, smoother than others, but honestly, it has all been well worth it. the ups and the downs, the ebb and flow of our relationship (any relationship) is what gives our relationship life and through all of it, i learn to love harder, be stronger, open up, communicate and truly live a vibrant life.

thank you to my mister for the first year of wedded bliss. i am so grateful that i get to have so many more years with you.
