One year.

On Sunday, it will be one year.


One year since I married the man of my dreams.


One year since our perfect wedding …


… followed by an even more perfect honeymoon.


It’s been a year filled with adventure,




and good times with friends.

whole group

It’s been a year filled with travel,


new challenges,


and some old challenges, too. Winking smile


But above all, it has truly been the best year of my life.

Brandon has been my best friend, my encourager, and my rock.  He has been my #1 fan every time I came up with a crazy idea, like running a half marathon …


… baking his mother’s birthday cake …


… or starting this blog! Smile

He has encouraged my walk with Christ, listened when I needed to talk, and eaten (almost) every meal I have cooked for him.


He has wiped away my tears on the bad days, and laughed at my ridiculous jokes on the good days.


Brandon, I love you.  Happy Anniversary. Red heart
