TODAY IS ERICK AND I’S ONE YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY. IT FEELS LIKE IT WAS JUST YESTERDAY… THEn YET AGAIN IT ALSO FEELS LIKE IT WAS A LIFETIME AGO. HAHA. THOUGH I WILL SAY I THOUGHT THE YEAR OF PLANNING AND BEING ENGAGED FLEW BY BUT THIS FIRST YEAR OF MARRIAGE WENT EVEN FASTER.
THERE WERE A couple THINGS everyone KEPT telling us ABOUT MARRIAGE AS WE WERE ENGAGED AND PREPPING TO BECOME MR. & MRS. and THE TWO THAT STICK OUT IN MY MIND THE MOST are
MARRIAGE IS HARD AND TAKES INTENTIONAL WORK
YOU WILL GROW TO LOVE EACH OTHER MORE WITH EACH PASSING YEAR
i couldn’t agree more with both of those statements. erick and i are both STRONG WILLED and stubborn which means we both have a hard time admitting when we are in the wrong. we disagree a lot and fight sometimes but more so than those two things we are one ANOTHER’s biggest supporters and as cliche and CHEESY as it sounds, BEST FRIENDS. i can CONFIDENTIALLY say i am more in love with him today than i was a year ago when i walked down that church ISLE. we have had both up’s and downs this past year as a couple and INDIVIDUALLY and have grown better for it.

my favorite thing about erick is his ability to make me laugh and lighten up any situation. his ENCOURAGEMENT is UNDOUBTED, AFTER ALL he was the one who encouraged me to start this blog. i love that he has no problem with my INDEPENDENCE and determination, let’s be real it would havE never worked out if he did. 🙂
today we are celebrating by jumping on a jet plane and making our way down south to lay poolside and relax for four amazing days. stay tuned for travel post coming up this week as i can’t wait to share all the details with y’all. in the meantime here are a few pics from our fabulous honeymoon in rivera maya, mexico last year.
