April 16, 2012

One.

One year ago today...I woke up bright & early surrounded by all my closest friends and family members as we prepared for the biggest, most important day of my life. My mom and my best friend laced me up in the most stunning white dress and I felt the most beautiful I had ever felt before.

One year ago today...My baby brother gave me away to the most handsome man standing at the end of a hot pink flower petaled aisle. I promised him forever and he did the same. We exchanged rings and a kiss and we were married.

One year ago...I became a wife. I gained a new sister & an amazing set of 2nd parents 
and my mom gained a new son.

One year ago today...my new husband and I two-stepped to our favorite song by the King of country music, Mr. Strait. I danced with my little brother in memory of our dad and then proceeded to do the air guitar to "Don't Stop Believing".



One year ago today...we had an incredible celebration of love with all of our loved ones where we ate, drank and danced the night away.

One year ago today...my maid of honor picked out a most perfect song for use to share a private dance to. We were greeted outside by our friends and families where they had been waiting. They blew bubbles for us, wished us a lifetime of happiness and we were whisked away in a gorgeous '57 Chevy.


One year ago today...I became Mrs. Howard and I think God for each and 
every single day he has given me with this amazing man.

One year ago today...I thought April 16, 2011 was the best day of my life. Then I realized that each morning that I get to wake up to my sweet husband and his adorable smile is actually the best day of my life and to be honest, the "best day of my life" just keeps on getting better.
***
To my husband: thank you for an incredible, incredible first year of marriage. If these past 365 days are a sign of what's to come over the course of our lifetime, then I can't wait to see what's in our future. We may not be perfect, but we're perfect for each other and to me, that's all that matters. You truly are a dream come true. Thank you for putting up with me and for loving me unconditionally. Thank you for being my very best friend. I am so lucky I get to grow old with you. God gave me you.

Happy one year anniversary!
xoxo
