year one.


one year ago today, i put on my boots, you your chucks, and we got married.

there were times where we annoyed each other, times where we wanted to bite each others heads off.

we've been able to gather around friends since this year ago today for many of their weddings.

this week last year was probably one of the craziest weeks of our lives. your grandfather passed away the sunday before our wedding, we drove to amarillo for the funeral, drove back with our cousin sain, had the wedding rehearsal in a park without you or jamie there, and then got married just as a monsoon hit northwest arkansas. i don't know about you, but i was exhausted...physically and emotionally.

john, i've never met anyone like you. the minute that i first saw you in April of 2006, working together at express...i fell in love. never in my wildest dreams did i actually think that we would end up dating a year later, married the year after that, and laying in bed with you with jonas on your chest just a year after that.

i remember the dates in the park, watching harry potter on your futon in your room. i remember cheap pizza from wal-mart and being the lone girl at the highland games. i remember turning my head to talk to you and our lips brushing...resulting in our first kiss.

no one can make me laugh harder than you, smile bigger, grow more. you bring out the best parts of me, and help me with the bad. you're my best friend, someone i can trust with my most precious and intimate thoughts. we have the same thoughts WAY too often (it sort of creeps me out a little).

when i took that pregnancy test and saw those blue lines, you were the one that i came to...and who rushed to wal-mart with me to buy 4 more boxes of tests. you held my hand during each contraction, encouraged me to do what i felt was impossible when i gave birth to our beautiful son.

john, i love you. i can't wait to see what is to come.
