BEDA 15: A Sappy Anniversary

Two years ago today, this pretty cool guy told me he loved me for the first time. 

One year ago today, I married him. 
    Our courtship story is an interesting and somewhat unconventional one. We fell in love over the phone, after being "introduced" by mutual nerdy friends. Within a couple months of becoming close friends, we were engaged. 
   It's been a crazy year. I heard someone say that the first year of marriage is the hardest, but considering how much our relationship has grown over the past year, I find that either really hard to believe, or incredibly reassuring. As many difficult times as we've had financially, it's probably been the happiest year of my life. Our love just continues to evolve and grow in such new, more complex, and wonderful ways. I'm so excited that this is just the beginning. 

Graham, I can't believe I am blessed enough to be your wife. You're the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I don't understand how you put up with me, let alone love me unconditionally. I love you infinitely.

    I'm posting this quickly while Graham's in the shower. Thanks to some amazing family generosity, we were able to afford to buy some supplies for a romantic picnic in the park. I'll do my Currently Reading list tomorrow. :-)

Have a lovely Sunday!
