1 year

Last weekend was the 1 year anniversary of Elliott & I. On our first date we went to the laser light show at the grand coulee dam. I remember just laying there looking at the stars and talking with him, and he asked me what I want out of my life. I remember stumbling for an answer. While I couldn't put my finger on specific things then, I am almost glad, because although I never imagined I would end up here, what I have now is more than I could ever ask for.

There is something beautiful about marriage, the way it softens your rough edges, forces you to be more patient, forgiving, and willing to sacrifice for the other person. I won't say that marriage is easy ( we are both a 10 on the stubborn scale) , I will say it is rewarding.  I have never been more fulfilled, more happy, or more in love. Even after a whole year waking up next to him is my favorite part of the day- as I think it will be forever : )

    I love this Kayla. It's so wise, and so true. Happy Belated Anniversary.

  2. Gosh I love anniversaries... I guess it just makes me remember my wedding day! Loved this post, such an adorable picture :)
