Two Years This Day

Two years.

Two years this day, I got up (after four hours of sleep) to get ready at 5:00AM so I could make it to the temple by 7:30AM and then be married by 9:00AM.

Two years this day, I walked into the temple and slipped into my wedding dress that I had found only weeks before and stood while my mother tried to remember how to do up the train.

Two years this day, my love and I were surrounded by dearest family and friends in the temple while we promised ourselves to each other for time and all eternity.

Two years this day, we stood outside that temple and attempted to take pictures while facing the freezing winds.

Two years this day, when I didn't know where he was, I would say, "Where's my Husband?", with a glowing smile on my face?

Two years this day, we walked into a beautifully decorated reception area to greet more family and friends as a newly wedded couple.

Two years this day, my husband and I sat down on the floor after it was all over and finally got something to eat.  Rolls, deli meat, and cookies.

Two years this day, we walked out to our car to find it completely decorated by my brothers, sadly to only have it washed away by the snow the next day.

Two years this day, our life began.

In the last year, our life hit a few bumps and we've been a bit bruised.  In spite of it all, we stayed strong together, growing only closer to one another. We truly have been blessed.  Things are never the way we plan or the way we think they are going to be and yet somehow they always work out perfectly.
"The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.  Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.  They're in each other all along."
Jalal ad-Din Rumi

  3. I Love this post! Life seems to always be full of bumps, but the eternal perspective we cling to really helps us stay strong. Good luck with everything and hopefully this next year will hit you with soft fluffy pillows with no bruises! :)
