One year ago today…

I married the love of my life.
It was the happiest, most magical day of my life. And yet, the year that has followed that day has been even more magical and has been filled with more happiness than I ever knew was possible.

I walked down the aisle to the song “Always Forever” by Phil Wickham (but song by one of Brett’s very musically talented groomsmen). Such a powerful song about our love for Jesus Christ, and yet, the lyrics also go hand in hand with the commitment of marriage and my feelings towards Brett.

“You are the hand that catches my fall
You are the friend that answers my call
You are my day, You are my night 
You are my love and all of my life

You are the love I need
You are the air I breathe
You are my love my life always forever
I would lay down my life 
Just to be by Your side
You are my love my life always forever”

Brett, thank you for making me the happiest woman in the world 1 year ago today when you married me. I am so incredibly blessed to have such a selfless, Godly man as my husband and I look forward to MANY more wonderful years with you.

Let’s look at more wedding photos, shall we?

But first…the running (slash yogurt) club met for our first run in the park after work today. And it was awesome. We’re going to kill that Disney Princess half marathon in February! And yes, I understand that we have like 20 weeks or something ridiculous like that to train. We are in pre training. You know, so the actual training (which we will start 12 weeks before the half marathon) won’t be so hard. Hopefully. We’ll just be such crazy runners that 13.1 miles is like a walk in the park. Oh yeah.

So back to the wedding photos. I’m in love with so many of them and I just need to do one more post to share a few more of my favs. And then I’ll move on, I promise.

Okay I’m done. Can you believe the week is almost half over already!? Happy almost Wednesday.

The joy of that day

Brett and I finally got our wedding pictures the other day and man oh man are we pleased. As we looked through them I kept finding myself being drawn to the pictures that weren’t posed and perfect. Don’t get me wrong, I lOVE our posed pictures (and a lot of those pics will soon be framed all over our apartment), but these other types of pictures just spoke to me. The ones that showed the emotions of the day…the happiness, the excitement, the sheer joy that was our wedding. They might not be perfect, I might look a bit ridiculous in some, but they’re real. They’re us on that day.

Some of my favs-

Yup, that's how I dance. I'm skilled.

Oh the happiness. It makes me want to go back in time and relive the day!
