Dear Mike,

Being married to you is awesome. This has been a pretty ideal first year. We’re so blessed to have each other, this little homestead, and our sweet dog.

Today- instead of decorating the house and cooking the big fancy meal I planned- we sat on the couch together, played Mexican Train Dominoes, watched the Packers beat the Panthers, and ate chili {the easiest recipe in the world: two cans black beans, two cans sweet corn, a big bottle of chunky salsa, and a bunch of shredded cheddar.} We’re both feeling under the weather and just needed a really mellow day.

It was perfect, I loved every minute of it. Happy anniversary to my favorite husband ever!!

I Love You,


P.S. It was really fun to go back and read all the posts about our wedding. Man-alive was that fun. I wish we could do it all over again every year: Setting up/rehearsal, getting ready, the ceremony, the details, the dinner, the dancing, the next day.

    Every post I just read about your wedding was amazing and makes me so giddy! It looks like So. Much. Fun. Seeing the costumes on the dance floor and people still wearing their bocce medals make me so happy. I love your family and friends and I don’t even know them!

    Thanks for your sweet comment, Brittany! We’re so fortunate to have fun, caring, generous, and good-to-the-core people in our lives. Our wedding was SO AWESOME because we got to hang out with so many of our nearest-and-dearest for a whole weekend. I seriously re-live it in my mind at least once a week.
