one year ago today

one year ago today i woke up, still in a dream, surrounded by my best girl friends.  still in my pj's we drove to a place that will forever be special to me, where i wrote a letter to the man of my dreams,
had my hair and makeup fixed,
read a letter from the man of my dreams,
and put on a pretty white dress.

i posed for a few pictures with my girls,

and i walked down an aisle.
i took my fiance's hand,
 and stood before God, our family and friends, and vowed to love, comfort, and cherish him and to remain by his side through all of life's trials and uncertainties. i promised to remain faithful to him and to prize him above all others. i promised to honor, support, trust and follow him as i follow Christ, for as long as we both shall live.


one year ago today, my husband woke up, surrounded by his best friends, and drove to a place that will forever hold such dear memories.  he put on a tux,
read a letter from his fiancee,
took some pictures with his best friends,

and got ready to meet his bride.  he stood by the pastor, and watched as i walked down the aisle.
he took my hand,
 and vowed, before God, our family and friends, to love and comfort me, to remain beside me through all of life's trials and uncertainties.  he vowed to remain faithful to me and to prize me above all others, to honor, guide, protect and lead me as Christ leads him, for as long as we both shall live.

we said "i do",  kissed our first kiss as husband and wife,
and walked away to start our new life together.

it feels close to impossible to put this last year, our first year, into words.  God has given us much, and has blessed us in ways i never knew were possible.  He has been faithful to us, and has taught us much through one another. i am ever humbled, and amazed, thankful and blessed to be able to call this man my husband. 

i am happy. i am thankful. i am blessed.

jonathan beverly, i love you! thank you for an amazing first year of marriage. here's to another year, and to the rest of our lives.
