Tomorrow is our first wedding anniversary. To celebrate we are buying each other a house. They say that you should celebrate with a gift of paper for your first anniversary, we figured that a title of a house would suffice. ;)
I think our one short year of marriage must equate to a heck of a lot more than that. We graduated college, moved out of state to pursue my husbands dream, dealt with cancer, moved back to Oklahoma for two full time jobs and now we're buying our first home that one day, we will start a family in. I'm thinking all of this isn't the norm for most newlyweds.
What I've learned in these short wonderful 12 months of marriage is that I never want to know what life is like without Dylan. This last year has taught me what true happiness is. I wake up with a smile on my face, and I go to sleep with a smile on my face. He makes every day a good day. We laugh all the time, from morning to night when we can't sleep and we play goofy games to make ourselves tired. He's my best friend and my love. What could be better? I love that it's not just my life I have to worry about anymore, it's our life. I love that we've learned to really have discussions and we know each others quirks and what makes each other tick. :) I love that we have our life together but we also have separate hobbies and friends. I admire his passion for work and his drive to succeed. I love that we have a dog that we spoil more than life itself. She's ridiculously rotten, and we wouldn't change a single thing about her. I couldn't imagine going into 2010 that this year would top last year, but I have to say it's come in pretty darn close and it's only October.
I love you Dylan Ross, thank you for giving me your name and sharing your life with me. Here's to many more years of wedded bliss!!
Love, Emily Marie
