L + C wedding anniversary

Already, one long, adventurous year has gone by.

We’ve moved twice – living in three different states since our wedding.

We’ve traveled many times – to Ohio, Michigan, Arkansas and Costa Rica.

Together we endured long nights of homework and writing assignments. Charlie let me cry on his shoulder after particularly grueling work days.

Celebrations of birth have come and gone, as well as the sorrow of death.

Our ‘first fight’ was more of a brief argument over something silly. We laughed about it and learned from it.

Charlie graduated from college with a major in biology. I am proud of my handsome husband and his love for the outdoors.

He is proud of me for pursuing my dreams in writing and art.

Living so closely together has taught us to enjoy the smaller things in life: like planning meals and buying fresh ingredients, or the satisfaction of a clean apartment. Together we’ve discovered the joy of hospitality – how much we love to visit with friends and family and make them feel at home.

Today, on our anniversary, Charlie and I are pondering the experiences we’ve shared as well as the trials and triumphs we are about to go through.

One year of marriage is nothing to boast about – we’ve still got a lifetime of growing to do! But it is still a milestone we shall always treasure. 

(you have to appreciate the work that went into each picture of us. The camera was on a tripod, so I had to make sure the lighting was good, adjust the angle, decide how to pose, focus the lens and set the self timer.) It was an ordeal -- but we both enjoyed the process :) )
