1 Year Together

Today is our 1st wedding anniversary! What a wonderful year it has been. Most of the advice we got before we were married sounded like this:

"Don't worry, the first year of marriage is the most difficult, but after that, it's wonderful."

"Marriage is really hard."

"Marriage is something you really have to work at, always remember that."

"It really is an adjustment."

I appreciate the loving words of those who were trying to help. Honestly, our first year has been amazing. I don't know if it's because we're so much alike, so easy going, or because we've spent every second we could together for a year BEFORE we were married, but things have been so smooth. Granted, we're sure hard times will come. But I think we're off to a great start. We've never been happier. To kick off this one year mark, I'd like to share some things we've learned this past year:

- No matter how much I complain, Cory will never stop farting in bed, and I will always be condemned for doing the same.

-There is no limit to how much Cory can talk about Jeeps.

-Just when I think I couldn't love him anymore, he'll unclog the shower drain from all my hair and my heart just soars!

- Cory has learned to handle my emotions so well. I can be really happy one moment, and crying the next. He always knows what to do to make me feel better.

-We are two dorks who were absolutely made for each other.

-I always take my leftovers home from restaurants and almost never eat them. Cory always makes sure they never go to waste.

-It is not ok to use the bathroom while your spouse is in the shower.

-No matter how awful I look, Cory always thinks I'm beautiful.

-No matter how awful he looks, I will always find him charming and adorable.

-Horrible things may happen to us, but we will always have each other to rely on and go to for comfort and love.

-We never thought we'd be so protective of each other.

-Our relationship is wonderful and unique and should never be compared to anyone else's.

-There is no better place to be than in the temple with your eternal companion. Feels a bit like heaven.

-It's such a wonderful feeling falling asleep and waking up next to someone you truly love.

- We never thought it was possible to love someone this much. Marriage is so wonderful!
