We have officially made it through our first year of marriage!
I have often heard that your first year of marriage is your hardest year, and I am feeling so fortunate that our first year was so wonderful. Not a day has gone by since March 8, 2014 that I haven’t felt like the luckiest girl in the world. And I hope Ramsey feels like the luckiest guy 🙂
Yesterday I was thinking about to our vows and reflecting the words we exchanged. In this last year, we have been through a lot. Life hasn’t been all ups this year, but we have certainly made the most of every situation and been there for each other.
For better, for worse, Ramsey has been by my side, and I his. There is no one that can make me feel better after a hard day than my husband. He knows the exact songs to play for me that will turn my mood around (anything by Bruno Mars and the Carpenters).
For richer, for poorer, we have figured things out. It turns out honeymoons and houses aren’t cheap. With the help of a fancy google spreadsheet I have made sure we stay on the better side of this vow!
In sickness, and in health, we have made the appropriate CVS trips and known when one of us just needs to be waited on hand and foot. This vow was best tested two weeks into marriage when the stomach flu hit the Mohsen house. Hard.
In joy, and in sorrow, we have also been there for each other. Joys have included a new job, new friends, vacations and adventures, running PRs, and the cutest little pup named Winnie. Sorrows have included the sickness of a Grandparent, the loss of a friendship, injuries and seeing close friends going through hard times. Through the good and the bad, we’ve been there for each other.
We plan to celebrate our anniversary together by eating our amazing wedding cake (it was so good I had our lady make us a new one for our one year), re-reading the vows we wrote for each other and spending the day together. And I am sure the wedding dress will come out at some point!
I look forward to many more years of celebrating anniversaries and reflecting on what that year of marriage brought into our lives. I hope every year of marriage can be as good as the first one has been.
Happy Anniversary, Ramsey. I love you more every single day.
