One year ago today. ❤️ My love, in the last year we’ve been through four devastating betrayals. I never used that word before this year + yet the enemy whacked away at our new marriage from every angle — family, friends, business.
In the midst we had medical heartbreaks + miracles. Emotional rockbottom, anxiety, + Xanax. Two weddings, this one a surprise to boot.
A few days ago a beautiful man prophesied over us that after a 3 year journey (we met 3 years ago), this hard year of loss is coming to an end + a new chapter is beginning. I believe him.
As hard as the last year has been, it was our first year of marriage! I still look at you sometimes + say “We’re MARRIED...” as though it feels like we’re playing pretend grown-ups.
You have stood by me through every betrayal. Every doctor’s appointment. Every morning I couldn’t get out of bed with anxiety. We never liked each other less than while wedding planning. And yet you’ve made me laugh through tears so often. We have said “We’re so blessed” to one another more times than I can count. Every day your hair has been great (your words, ha).
A year ago today the best hour of my life was on a mountaintop we hiked to in the south of France. Both crying, wiping snot from one another’s noses, laughing, getting sunburned because no one told us to wear sunscreen to your wedding, praying, worshipping, and committing to live life together as a family.
Thank you for choosing me to do life with. There were easier paths you could have chosen! But as you say, what fun would that be? (wink)
Happy 1st anniversary. ❤️ You’re the love of my life till we’re 93 with our home care aide Francisco (“ooh that’s a fun name to say!”) + die in the same night like that Notebook movie you refuse to watch with me.
(PS If you’re a newer friend, you can read our crazy elopement story at DeanSt.co/wedding or link in bio. And I promise to get our family wedding photos up before that one year anniversary! Ha.)
