Has it really been a year already?

One year ago today, I married the man of my dreams. We had a wonderful time spending three days with all our guests at the Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch in Loveland, Colorado.

The aspens were at their peak, the weather was in the upper 70s - lower 80s and just as we left to head to Estes Park for a few days after the ceremony, it started to snow. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend to get married!

This year has flown by so quickly. It really does seem like just yesterday we got married. But, as I look back, I reflect on a few of the highlights from our first year of marriage:
  1. Survived living with his parents for a whole year and all four of us still enjoy each other's company
  2. Traveled to Costa Rica, Vancouver, Florida, Washington, Colorado & Michigan.
  3. Bought a house.
  4. Witnessed hubby winning re-election.
  5. And the list could go on & on.

Hubby was in a wedding this past Saturday for one of his buddies who was in our wedding. At the ceremony, the priest said that if you ask most couples a year after they're married how it's going, they'll say, "oh, it's okay, but..." Hubby and I strongly disagree. We love each other more today than we did last October 6th. Every day brings new adventures and opportunties to grow in our love and appreciate the other more.

I really wish I could post some of my favorite photos from our wedding day, but I'm still under orders to keep hubby's face off this blog, so for now, some photos without my groom will have to suffice. (I'm having trouble with the photo thing for now...I'll try to make a slide show this afternoon and post it later.)

I love you sweetheart. Make it home safely from Colorado so we can celebrate together tomorrow!


  1. Happy anniversary! And, let me tell you from experience, that marriage keeps getting better and better!

  2. Brie,

    Happy anniversary! I always thought a fall wedding would be beautiful--yours sounds no different.

  3. Congratulations! I couldn't agree with you more about loving marriage.

  4. congrats you guys, and from someone about to hit the three year mark I can tell you that its still only getting better, and we still have so much to learn about one another! enjoy not having to wear the "newlywed" title anymore!!
