One year

Well, one year ago today we were with friends and family... celebrating our wedding!

We've been doing this all week-end long; "one year ago right now, I was taking a nap" "one year ago right now, I was getting my hair done" "one year ago right now, we were talking to the sealer"...

One year ago, we got married. It's hard to believe it's been a year, but there it is, one year. And it's been pretty awesome. We've had one year to get to know each other better, to get a feel for what we love and what we can't stand, one year to adapt and change, one year to settle into our little dance, one year to make plenty of memories, one year of planning for the future, one year to make our little apartment a home, one year to take challenges and use them to hopefully someday make us stronger.

Anniversaries are good times to reevaluate too, and I think the only thing I would've changed is our spiritual dedication. We weren't as gospel-centered as we should have been in starting our lives together, and I paid for that dearly.

I'm setting that straight, starting now. The first year anniversary is "paper" so my gift to Andrew (and me :) was a subscription to the Ensign magazine, not so much because having the Ensign come to your doorstep twelve times a year makes you better a better person, but because I felt that not getting it was some sort of outward expression of our lack of inward commitment. I'm renewing the inward commitment, so that's my outward expression.

Here's to a year of rededicating our lives to the Lord.

"And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." 
Joshua 24:15
