Here's to our 1st year!

August 20, 2010 was absolutely the happiest, most important, most perfect day of my life, it was the day I was sealed to my very best friend and the man of my dreams! 

Well, we did it! We survived our first year! Not without a few bumps and bruises, but I can easily say I love Evan way more today than I did even on our wedding day and I didn't think that was possible.
 We were lucky enough to be back in Dallas on our first anniversary for my best friend's wedding (more on that to come, congrats Chad and Sarah! We love you!!) so after waking up to a gorgeous bouquet of roses, Evan and I headed to the Dallas Temple where it all started a year ago.

Hardest thing about the first year of marriage:
Evan: Communication! When I know something is wrong and I ask her if she is upset, why does she always say no? She is upset. Would it really be that difficult to just say, "yes."?? Apparently so.
Me: Communication! It was so hard to get him to tell me where he was going and when he was going to be back and to teach him to call me to check in after a 7 hour bike ride. Is he dead? How would I know? And who knew, "I get out of class at six" did not mean the same thing as "I'll meet you at home for dinner at six"?? Not me.

Most surprising thing about marriage:
Evan: Wait, you mean I have to call you and tell you where I am going? You need to know what I'm doing all the time? Why? Haha communication, again.
Me: He is still a boy. He's a wonderful and sweet and spiritual and funny and sexy man but guess the end of the day he really is still a boy with everything that goes with it. Including farts.

Funniest thing about marriage:
Evan: The times when we are going to bed late at night and we get in those moods where everything is funny and we can't stop laughing. Those are the best.
Me: Evan's vocabulary. I thought he was funny before, but there were so very many things he was holding back until we were married. Then the flood gates really opened!

Best thing about marriage:
Both of us: Having your best friend with you all the time and taking on the world together, whether that's making Saturday morning breakfast or wiping away tears( tears) or cleaning up a flood. It's always together.

Goals for the new year:
1. Graduate college....for real this time.
2. Get jobs!
3. Start thinking about a family. (Notice to accomplish this goal, all we have to do is start thinking about a family. This does not include actually having one. No announcements.)


  1. You're cute. I love you both very much and am SOOO HAPPY that you have the most perfect marriage! I know no marriage is perfect, but you two sure make it look that way. I wish you MANY more years of happiness and when you actually stop thinking and start bringing those babies into the world their "Aunt Heather" will be here to take care of those beautiful little ones...just saying. LOVE YOU!
