One Year

Forgive me for making this an all about me post, but all I want to share today is the celebration of my marriage to the best man I know.  Yesterday was our first anniversary and today we start with the rest of what I pray will be many many more years together as partners and friends.  Everyone says the first year is the hardest and ours certainly was.  Not for the obvious reasons... but we've survived nearly every life change you could endure in a year and managed to come out stronger than I ever thought possible.  I am married to my very best friend in the world and I am so grateful that he is in my life.

Should you care to stroll down memory lane with me, see our fun slideshow and our Style Me Pretty feature.

ON LOVE by Kahlil Gibran

"Then said the student Almitra, Speak to us of love.  And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them.  And with a great voice he said: When love beckons to you, follow him, though his ways are hard and steep.  And when his wings enfold you yield to him, though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.  And when he speaks to you believe in him, though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.  For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.  Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.  Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, so shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth."
