1 year! I can't believe it's here already! Yay
This past year has been so big and so full in many many ways but marrying Joshua still takes it all. The way I felt on that day is nothing to how deeply he has penetrated my heart now. We found the first year to be freeing. For so long we've wanted this and now when I'm having a bad day he can squeeze me and bring me ice cream, we can lay in bed all day talking about everything, we can argue and cry and irritate but he's always still standing there! This man is helping me become who I want to be and encouraging me to become so much more. His Godly heart and sometimes surprising adoration for me had made this past year so much more than I ever dreamed of. I know we still don't even know that much about being married, but it feels like we've figured out how to learn about it together, which is really encouraging and hopeful.
Moving across the country has been really hard on us and at times we took that out on each other. But moving out here has forced us to rely on each other and helped us learn how to give each other strength to stand tall when the other can't. God has truly blessed our relationship out here. Not having people surrounding us all the time has given us many opportunities to just drink coffee and talk about who we want to be and what we want our lives to be about. God has been training us how to be One out here. We've been able to concentrate on each other in a way we never have before and I feel so blessed and encouraged that it is Joshua I get to do all this with.
Hubs I love you and can't wait to continue seeing who we can
become through our shared life and love for one another!
Thank you to everyone who has supported us this past year as well. Supported us in our marriage, our moving across the country, for the encouragement, understanding, and willingness to listen. There are so many of you who have been an important part of who we are.
