Yesterday we realized that we have been married for almost a whole year. We were at our wonderful bachelor/bachelorette parties at this time last year. What I would give to be on a house boat in the sun with great friends right now!!!
Dru checked the water temp in our lake here in town, and it was 90 degrees yesterday evening. That does not even sound refreshing. I can't imagine cooling off in a bathwater warm lake. So I have become a home body. Me and my air conditioner well I have to say that we are best friends! If the AC was to break *knock on wood* I might have a mental breakdown. I have not even stepped outside since yesterday morning when I returned from the airport at 5:30am and crawled my butt back into bed.
I am almost ready for it to be fall. So I can comfortably sit outside around a bonfire with my hubby wearing a comfortable sweatshirt and chatting away. It is way too warm for a fire these days. And the bugs are pretty bad too. Not to mention that we got over 3inches of rain yesterday.
So back to the being married for a year. One whole year does not really seem that long since we have been together for almost 10 years. But one year is a milestone, a step in the right direction of the many many more fantastic years and adventures that will come.
This past year (2010) has been full of not so great medical adventures, ones that I would like to take back and have never happened. But they have taught me one thing. Not necessarily something that I didn't always know, but brought it to my attention. That Dru will do anything for me, be by my side through it all. Comfort me when I am sad, or mad, or frustrated, or in pain. Talk me through the bad times, and be reassuring. I am forever grateful that I found the love of my life when I was only 15 years old...well I guess that I could say 14 since we did "date" when I was a freshman in high school, but for a mere 2 months or so before we broke up. Only to get "back together" my sophomore year. And have been together ever since.
We have grown so much, we have learned. We have lived thousands miles apart, hundreds of miles apart, thought about moving in together, lived down the street from each other, lived together "in sin", moved thousands of miles away from what we knew while still living "in sin", and then finally lived together alone in our married life in a house that we own. This journey has not been without bumps in the road but it has been the best journey of my life.
I can't wait to see where the next month takes us, let alone the rest of our lives. Happy almost one year anniversary honey!
