Goodness has been one year!! 

One year of blissful marriage. 

One year of becoming closer and knowing more about the man I'm going to spend the rest of my life with. 

One year of 2 graduate students living under one roof--living off of LOTS of loans.

One year of learning about each other's little habits, routines, and weirdness.

One year of coming closer to God through a great bible study he led us to.

One year of being parents to 2 great puppies (I can't leave them outta this post)

One year of always having my best friend by my side.

One year that I would NEVER change

This has been the best year yet, and I can't wait for many, many, mannnny more of these to come!

Let's do a little reflecting if you don't mind on the big day and how we got here to celebrate June 26th together!

Well, that's that. Time for another awesome year together with many new and exciting things to come. I think we have definitely learned a lot and will be learning more as I start a REAL job, Michael will begin his Residency search and start working in July and many other things!!

Also, I would like to wish a very happy Birthday to Michael's mother Jan! Without her, we wouldn't be able to celebrate this occasion and she cannot be forgotten on this special day!

Hopefully tomorrow we will be getting a little weekend recap of our time spend in Madisonville and at the B&B!
