They say that the first year of marriage is one, if not the, most difficult years you will have. Well, if that’s the case then Erik and I will have a breeze for the next 50+ years because our first year was like smooth sailing.
Life with your best friend is pretty much the raddest thing ever. Every day is a new adventure filled with laughter, fun, and love. We definitely had our challenges together though. I moved away from home and to a new state, we had to adjust living together which we had never done before getting married, we sometimes argued over who would do the dishes and who would vacuum, we had to adjust to a new workflow, and we had those overall “OMG!” moments that drove each of us crazy YET we knew none of those instances were anything to get bent out of shape over.
As I look back on the last 365 days of being a wife I can’t help but be so proud. I love my job title of wife because it’s an honor to do all the things I do for the man who makes me so incredibly happy and puts my dreams and wishes before his very own.
I thought it would be fun to put together a little visual that’s like a stroll down memory lane of our first year together. It’s important to remember the moments together and the times you laughed and had fun because when the going gets tough it’s those reminders that allow you to keep a positive outlook and find the light in even the darkest of situations.
